I stayed in many wonderful locations, in many wonderful forms of accommodation during my recent European spraycation. The private homes into which I was invited were gorgeous, character-filled + very, very welcoming. The accommodation I lived in while exploring away from my wonderful friends was also super. Here are a couple of the more remote highlights, hidden away in the European countryside:
I spent a few nights in a super recycled sewer pipe overlooking the Danube River in Austria. Cosy, private (on the very edge of a tiny ancient town), + surprisingly warm:
It was wonderful to lock myself away from the world after long days spent exploring Western Austria.
I was also lucky to be able to spend a few nights in a charming gherkin barrel (Gurkenfass), in the north of Germany, in the middle of a UNESCO-listed biosphere forest reserve (+ the home of the pickled gherkin):
I loved the chance to spend my evenings surrounded by a babbling brooks, + the curious sounds of forest critters wandering through the undergrowth:
I’m looking forward to finding more character-filled remote accommodation when I return to Europe, very soon. Stay tuned for part 4 of my European spraycation, going live soon…
