    Christian and I hopped in the car after school on Friday and drove to Bratislava to meet Kevin’s 5th grade choir at The Big Sing Bratislava.  There were 140 children from 7 international schools across 3 countries who came together for a conc...

    on Feb 29, 2016 in Uncategorized
      We miss our yard.  Living in an apartment has its benefits, but the boys and I really miss being able to pop outside at any time and just “play”.  Lucky for us, Vienna has so much to do besides visit museums and palaces.  Last w...

    All of Europe and the UK seem have a Ski Week during February.  They don’t call it a winter break, it’s called ski week, so guess what we’re doing this week?  Yup, we’re skiing.  Kevin is with 50 other kids on a school sp...
  • Ash Wednesday thought
    on Feb 11, 2016 in Uncategorized
    Yesterday was Ash Wednesday, so the boys and I opted for going to a small, local Catholic Church rather than taking the trip into the city center where we normally attend Mass.  The majority of Austrian’s consider themselves Catholic and publi...

    on Feb 2, 2016 in Uncategorized
    I hate to say it, but I miss Target.  While Vienna has some great stores, I miss being able to go into one store and take care of 10 items on a list rather than having to go to 10 stores.  Think about it, you can buy toys, food, clothes, furniture,...

    on Feb 1, 2016 in Uncategorized
    People watching is always fun, but at an airport it can be even more.  If you don’t believe me, go to the international arrivals section of any airport and find a quiet place to observe.  Last week I was at the airport in Vienna to meet Geor...

    on Jan 20, 2016 in Uncategorized
    Wondering what’s been going on in our world?  Look no farther than the letter “B” Budapest:  George came with us for a  pre-Christmas weekend visit to a city filled with Christmas markets and tourists.  We found the perfect excu...
