Pet Friendly Vienna - Public Transportation
posted by: Sandra • in Vacations
One of the great things about Vienna, Austria (and much of Europe) is it is so dog friendly! James is ready for his first U-Bahn ride: James is welcome on the public transportation and Vienna has buses (Autobus), local trains (Schnellbahn or S-Bahn), trams (Straßenbahn and what I keep calling street cars) and underground/subway lines (U-Bahn).

A girl’s guide to camping
posted by: Sandra • in Vacations
Chris and I love camping. I don’t consider myself a girly girl, but I do love makeup and beauty products. So I decided to put together a girl’s guide to camping! I know a lot of women that would panic if their boyfriend or husband asked them to go camping. And I want to show them that it is possible! We just went camping for an entire week and I will say I was the only person applying makeup at our campsite. Hey, natural light is amazing for applying makeup! I was probably the only person
