Time to go to the airport and find our way home, to our lovely city, Porto - Portugal 😍

 

Where to Sleep? 

We stayed in a nice 3 Stars Motel called Motel One Wien-Prater. This time we didn't have breakfast... a beginner's mistake. This Motel is really really good, and Motel is only in the name, cuz is a normal 3 stars hotel! This is near Prater Park (near is like your windows are above the Park 🤣 ), but you won't hear a thing. This motel is near the subway and is super good considering the price/quality. A good option for sure, a new breaking of the stigma of Motels. Next time, include breakfast!
