Low Budget Travel to Croatia

Booking a luxury holiday is easy. But what about a low budget trip? I was wondering, if you can travel spontaneously in the middle of the summer high season with a very limited budget, even if you are not a teenager anymore and used to various amenities in life.
So I took the next bus to Croatia and landed in the middle of the night in Zadar.

Hard Rock Café Wien

Hard Rock Cafe Vienna

Hard Rock Café Wien

Friday Night I saw a tweet from HRC Vienna, and it was clear, that we wouldn’t wait a week. Sunday evening was the perfect time for a family dinner.

Hard Rock Café Wien

We expected a full restaurant and where surprised that even the shop was fully packed like there would be offered something great for free. Thanks to our HRC-Rewards Membership (yes we are a #hrcfamily ;-) ), it didn’t take any longer than 5 minutes to get a beautiful table on the top floor.

We wouldn’t need a Menu, as everyone knew what he wanted to order. Me? Caesars Salad of course. The others? Burgers of course.

The Hard Rock Café staff was excited like hell, but super friendly. They even brought our drinks twice in all their excitement.

So here`s to Hard Rock Café and the perfect start in Vienna: Cheers! #thisishardrock

Everyone was super satisfied with drinks and meals and we couldn’t be more happy, that we have another family-dinner place to celebrate our private events.

It seemed that the Café had opened months ago, not 2 days ago. Every seat and table booked. Both Bars fully packed. What a start.

I felt a bit sorry for the service, that they didn’t have a minute to get used to their new working-place, but they did such a great job. Every table cleaned the second someone left and new guests on their way upstairs.

And then it was time for some souvenirs to remember the first weekend of Hard Rock Café in Vienna. T-Shirts for every family member :-)

Best Pizza in Vienna

We all love Pizza, even our Labrador. Thing is: everyone likes a different kind and that makes it kind of a difficult dinner for homemade Pizza, why I decided years ago, that we go out for Pizza, except special occasions, then I make tiny, little Pizza Hearts.

Pizza Disco Volante Vienna

In the city-center? No doubt for me: Still the Pizza Senza at Regina Margherita in Wallnerstrasse: Napoli Classica. But somehow I just like the restaurant on warm summer evenings, when you can have a seat in the courtyard. Rare moments in Vienna.

The rest of the year we used to go to Francesco’s in the 14th district not far from the U4 Hütteldorf train station (Linzer Straße 415) for about 20 years. A pure and authentic Italian restaurant you would find in any italian city run by a family.

And then we tried Disco Volante last year. Hyped from Fashionistas and Bohos from the very first day, who frequently visited the first Pizzeria Mari in the 2nd district (which is just to far for me, just to get a quick meal) owned by the same family.

Pizza Disco Volante Vienna

Honestly it is not the Giant disco ball, in the middle of a non decorated hall-like room, which turns out to be the wood-burning stove. It is the pure and delicious Pizza. And just like that, our family has been visiting the place every second week. And that will not change, if the quality doesn’t. I mostly order the white Pizza without tomato sauce with little cherry tomatoes and Rucola and on really cold days and near to starving it could be the white Pizza Volante with potatoes. The rest of the family tried all the meat and sausage variants and was never disappointed.
