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.

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,…

Refocusing

This has been the longest stretch of time that I’ve gone without blogging. The main reason I’ve taken a break is that I’ve been busy “living”.  In the past, I was so caught up in blogging, taking an obscene amount of pictures, and wondering what to write about next, that I’ve forgotten to enjoy where…

Tasty Tuesdays: Triple Delight

For those who reside in Vienna, know that Joseph Brot is a very popular and can be quite an expensive bakery. They have a bakery in the 1st as well as a bakery/cafe in the 3rd district.  They pride themselves in being organic, using local ingredients, and turning it into something simple and delicious. Not…

Playing with Fondant

A few friends and I signed up for a fondant decorating class over the weekend.  I didn’t have very high expectations going into this, other than to have a fun evening with great company and learn something new. The course was taught entirely in German-with the four of us together, we managed pretty well.  Although…

Tasty Tuesdays: 12 Munchies

I ventured a little off the beaten path and stumbled upon 12 Munchies. It’s a cute little place in the 18th district. There’s probably only seating for maybe five or six people. The lady behind the counter was extremely friendly  and even though the offerings were not as vast as some other places I’ve been…
