I’ve always wanted to visit this beautiful city (I’m a sucker for castles and pretty buildings), so I was thrilled when we decided a 3-girls-reunion in combination with a city trip to Vienna. Below I’m sharing a few snapshots from our short but beautiful time there, plus some must-do’s if you’re planning a trip!
