Well, it’s official. We’re moving…again. And this time it’s to Vienna, Austria! 3 whole years in Europe! I have to pinch myself now and then to really believe it. We’ve actually known about this move for quite some time. But with the unpredictability of the Foreign Service I was reluctant to make any big announcements […]

  • Savannah - I lived in Vienna in college for a year- it’s perfection. It’s only a few hours from a million places and it’s full of wonderful itself. I loved catching $3 operas and the kunsthistorisches has Caravaggio’s David and Goliath which is fantastic. There are wonderful parks. Minoritenkirche is the most peaceful refuge in the middle of the city, and it has a fascinating history with Napoleon. The absolute best part of Vienna however is the Christmas markets. THE BEST PART. It’s the happiest this to ever happen!! You are going to have the best time ever.ReplyCancel

    • Kaley - Thanks so much for the suggestions, Savannah! I can’t wait to check them all out. And yes, I have heard the Christmas Markets are pure magic.ReplyCancel
