Osternmarkt

I love going to the Easter Markets in Vienna. It’s become our annual tradition to go on an “egg hunt” to pick out a few beautifully hand painted and delicate eggs since we’ve lived here. It’s been a great part of our Viennese life.  I will miss it when it’s our time to leave.

Starting again

When I started this blog in 2013, I never thought I’d stop. It’s been a little over a year since I last posted. I’ve thought about my blog from time to time, especially after each trip we’ve taken since. In 2015, the blog was mainly just journaling our trips. I miss that. Because even though…

Hershey’s Heartbreak

This has been one of the most difficult posts I’ve written to date. 2015 ended on a very devastating note for Hubs and me. We had to let our precious Hershey cross the rainbow bridge. It was one of the most excruciating decisions that we’ve ever had to make. But in the end, we had…

Til the cows come home

The state of Tirol in Austria has been on our list since we moved here and just got around to it this week! I’m still a bit “giddy” from our trip.  The main draw for us this year was to attend an event called Almabtrieb. It’s German for “cattle drive”. In the alpine regions of…

Visit from the In-Laws

Last week, my in-laws came into town. It was my mother in-law’s first time out of the U.S.; she just acquired her first passport, ever, last year. Hubs and I were both “over-the-moon” excited to have family in town.  They were only here a relatively short time, but we packed in as much as we…

Wir machen Urlaub

It’s not uncommon to see “We’re on holiday” signs in storefronts around town. It’s especially a popular sighting during the summer months. You see, under Austrian law, it’s required to provide at least five weeks of leave.  Which doesn’t include sick leave or the numerous holidays Austrians get.  Although Hubs doesn’t receive any of the…

The Quintessential Lazy Day

When our friends asked us to go to a spa/wine resort for a lazy Sunday, we couldn’t resist. Who would? They picked us up early on Sunday morning and we headed to a town called Langenlois. It’s about an hour outside of Vienna and is home to the smaller of two properties of the LOISUM…

Tasty Tuesdays: Home Edition

I’ve been bedridden with a nasty virus for the last two days, so my ever so thoughtful Hubs brought home a Tasty Tuesday for me. I’m just grateful that I haven’t lost my appetite and taste buds to enjoy the slice of black forest cake, which happens to be one of my favorites. As you…
