Since we got back from New England, I’ve felt an even bigger need for nature and quiet. The sound of cars and sirens at night still keep me awake, and walking Lil G to kindergarten on sidewalks rather than through fields (not sure where fields came into this, but I’m going with it) irritates. In light of this… discontent, and in the spirit of compromise (I am the only one who feels this way), I am hunting for spots of nature in a 20 min. drive radius. Among these is the WIG park in Oberlaa, as seen on manati-mum’s site (woah, 2008!) a while back. Several times actually. And since most recommendations from MM have proven incredibly succesful, off we went on Saturday.
If I hadn’t misread directions and the SatNav weren’t anti-social it would have taken less than 20 minutes to get there, so that will definitely work as a regular destination.
Evaluation: Excellent. We’ll be checking it out as the seasons turn, and I’m particularly keen to leave one of the side gates and walk through the fields. (Ha! FIELDS! I knew there was a reason we still live in Vienna.)
