Gabriela Sabatini Perfume
I love wandering around Müller in Vienna. It is the closest thing to a Walgreens or CVS here in Austria. They have a really good selection of drugstore makeup and they also have high end makeup such as Chanel, YSL and Clinique. They have a huge perfume selection ranging from budget to high end. I was wandering the perfume section one day when I spotted a Gabriela Sabatini perfume section! Do you remember her? She was a great tennis player in the late 80s and early 90s. I had no idea she had ...

5 Things Americans Won't Find in Europe
Pretty much anything we want or need in Europe, we can find it. Some things maybe aren't quite what we are used to back home. But at least we can find it.
There are a few exceptions, though. Here are 5 things we as Americans can't find in Europe. Or at least they just aren't quite what we are used to in the states.
1. Black Beans

Taking Your Dog on a Train in Europe
We've been traveling around Europe with our Standard Poodle, James. Most of the trains in Europe are dog friendly. In fact, we haven't found a train that wasn't dog friendly yet.
I explain this in the video - but when you are researching train tickets online, you can't seem to buy them once you add a "dog" or "hund" to your search terms. We couldn't figure this out so we went and asked at the OBB train ticket office in Vienna. When you travel with your dog, you have to buy the tickets in ...

I just LOVE anything that has Poodles on it. While out shopping in Vienna the other day I spotted these cute Poodle house slippers. I didn't need them. I just bought these Sheep Wool Bootie Slippers back in November. But as I walked around the shoe store, I realized I would regret it if I didn't buy them.
They are Tofee poodle slippers and they are really comfortable! They have a pretty firm base with a shape so your feet are a little more supported (the Wool bootie slippers don't have ...

Nightjet Train with a Dog | Milan to Vienna
We are heading back to Vienna and we wanted to try out the Nightjet train. The Nightjet from Milano to Wien does take 12 hours. The trains stops at each stop for longer times and once you cross the border into Austria, the train is stopped at Villach for several hours in the middle of the night. We took James on a long walk before we boarded the train and he was okay to hold going to the bathroom for the entire trip. We knew we could get off at stops and walk him if needed but he was so comfortable ...
