I finally got to do the one thing I've been longing to do: Solo trip. My friends who had studied abroad before me had gone to different countries and on flights for solo trip but knowing myself, I had to settle for a train ride in Austria. But I am so glad I ended up going by myself. You can get to Hallstatt directly from Vienna with the Train from Hauptbahnhof and same with coming back to Vienna. Total, youwill be in a train for 6 hours but I promise you, it will be worth it! The train ride almost would have been my favorite part. The view outside the windows were so stunning! It was definitely a peaceful relxing trip for me. Other than the fact that IF I got lost, I would have no one beside me. I always wated to go to Hallstatt because of its beautiful scenery and its salt mines. Becuase the train station to Hallstatt is accross the lake, I had to take the ferry to the actually city. The ferry boat ride was a perfect beginning to seeing the city from a far. (Only 5 Euros round trip.) It is a tniy city but so rich with buildings and nature. I will 100% recommend Hallstatt as a solo trip if you are studying abroad in Austria or just stopping by!
