Best Books/Movies/Films about Vienna
If travelling to a new country I always like to „get myself into it“ – at first.
I love to see the country or town with the eyes of someone who has been there/lived there.
By watching a film/reading on the airplane, train etc. I get an imagination of the place I want to go.. have something in mind about its history .. good or bad..
And when I arrive.. I like to go and visit this places – see with my own eyes – what is looks now and imagine the things I have already in my mind.
So– I make up a story of two or more “strangers” (depends how many books I was able to read before) – meeting & exchanging feelings/impressions about this place.
