Impressions of an Austrian-flavoured ASTW Lunch

This month’s ASTW (Australian Society of Travel Writers) lunch, hosted by the Austrian National Tourist Office (ANTO), was truly Austrian-inspired. Almost 70 people took up ANTO’s invitation to enjoy “Moments of Bliss” at “The Commons”, a former farmhouse and now “local eating house” in hipster Darlinghurst. As part of “Austria. Dirndl Temptation – Dare to flirt back!” participating journalists and PR-executives had the chance to be honorary “Dirndl Ambassadors” during the lunch and wear traditional Austrian Dirndl dresses and Lederhosen.  The colourful “Dirndl Ambassadors”, the scent of fresh meadow flowers and the joyful atmosphere at “The Commons” even made some guests feel like being on an Austrian mountain hut! Have a look at the gallery of a jovial networking lunch!

Christine Salins has shared her “Moments of Bliss” at the ASTW-lunch on her blog food-wine-travel, worth reading!
