In the midst of the bustle of travel, it's all too easy to overlook the details. We're talking about special touches others have stressed over just so you can enjoy a unique experience, whether you know it or not. Every so often we'll highlight The Little Things like this, so now you will know.

The Little Thing: Business Class passengers on Austrian Airlines experience a spectacular onboard coffee service, choosing from the 10 most popular Austrian specialties.

What do you think of when you think, "Austria?" Not Australia, but Austria, that magical and musical country of mountains, castles, 'Sound of Music' tours, and Viennese coffee. Hopefully that last one comes before all others for you, because flying there on Austrian Airlines means a taste of the best before you even land.

Lounging Around Vienna Airport's Groovy Gate Furniture

Where: Vienna International Airport (VIE), Vienna, Austria
December 23, 2013 at 2:30 PM | by | Comments (0)

If you’ve sat and waited at one airport gate for your flight to board, you’ve pretty much waited at them all. Sure, there is the idiosyncratic experience of open-air lawn chairs in the tropics or something equally unusual in other far-flung destinations, but most bear a depressing resemblance to each other: immovable rows of rigid chairs that will give you a numb butt way before it’s time to get on board.

That’s why we were so happy to come across something different during a recent departure from Vienna International Airport (VIE), where you can find these leather-clad, multi-faceted lounge islands.

Five Cities Begging for Your Attention: Vienna, Austria

December 8, 2010 at 11:40 AM | by | Comments (0)

Call us champions of the underdog, but we’ve got an overall affinity for places that are often overlooked in the travel world. Some have had rough pasts or are a tad slow on the tourist track, but they just want a little love. Here’s the lowdown on five cities eager for the chance to win you over.

City 3 of 5: Vienna, Austria.

Why Go to Vienna: There’s lots to do in Austria’s musically-inclined capital even if Mozart, Strauss, and Mahler aren’t your thing. The Old World vibe of the Habsburg dynasty has dominated the imperial baroque city for quite some time, which equaled a snooze-fest for the non-culture vulture. But there’s been an injection of new-school cool of late.
