Vegan MoFo: Hit By a Sturm!

Vienna was an amazing city, and I didn’t even touch the surface of all there is to see, do, and eat. On our last day, bazu, her friend Lucy, and I decided to try and do a little last minute site-seeing, and ended up in front of the Rathaus, drawn in by the carnival and food booths in front of it.

We decided to order a round of Sturm, a fermented grape juice, only available in the fall during grape harvest season.  It was so refreshing and sweet that we didn’t realize how much alcohol we were actually drinking, until we tried to find our way back to our friends’ apartment to pack up our stuff and head to the airport (the adventure included ending up in a train yard) . We did make it to the airport somehow, and early. I think if I hadn’t also stopped to have some potatoes, and luckily stopped at 2 1/2 mugs, I would have been in real trouble.



Stay tuned for more food and adventures from Vienna, Bratislava, and Budapest!

    I DIDN’T have potatoes! And I had 3 cups of sturm… and possibly finished off your last 1/2 cup… well, we’ll always have the train yard. =)

      I think you and Lucy both helped me finish off that last mug. I am such a lightweight. I thought you’d learned at that point to always get the carbs when other people were ordering them! No croissant, cookie, or kartoffelpuffer for you!

    That’s hilarious that you ended up in a train yard! I must find this Sturm you speak of.
