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…

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…

Oh, the places you’ll go

It’s been a while since I sat down and thought about my expat life. I could ramble on and on about how it has changed me and so on, but I think I’ve covered that in past posts and those closest to me know how I feel about living in Vienna. Originally, Hubs and I…

A Night to Remember

Last night was another “pinch me” moment. Hubs and I attended the IAEA Ball at the Hofburg Palace. As we entered the palace, it felt like we were stepping into a fairytale surrounded by beautiful architecture and ambience. There were several rooms that played different types music, so you could roam around and dance to classical,…

Holiday Cheer

The holiday season begins at the start Thanksgiving, for us Americans. It’s also one of my absolute favorite holidays. So, it’s no surprise that we chose that time to go for our “home leave”. It was filled with lots of food and quality time with our family and friends. During and after our return back to…

Halfway

I can’t believe that we’ve been living in Vienna for a year and half now.  Technically, we’re halfway through our time here, although, I have a strong feeling that we’ll stay as long as we can. In the last six months, my attitude has changed about Vienna.  Dare I say it? Besides the Viennese people,…

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…
