One thing we love about Europe: You can travel by train with your dog! We were ready to book our first train ride with James, our Standard Poodle. While train travel in Europe with a dog is easy, it
We posted in the past about James getting groomed in Vienna, Austria. And one thing we forgot to think about – people like to get their dogs groomed in time for Christmas! So we tried to get an appointment
We wanted to spend some time in the Alps in Austria so we headed to Schwendau, Austria. Schwendau is in Tyrol and people snow ski year round here! We had a little snow down in the valley while we were
We took a day trip to Salzburg, Austria. We walked around the shops and streets for a few hours and we didn’t take that many photos. It was fun to see the old town area and to walk across the Salzach
When we went out to the Salzkammergut and Tyrol regions of Austria we noticed a LOT of baby announcements. It was really cute – they usually included a wooden stork of some kind, the baby’s name, items
I’ve seen so many pictures of Hallstatt, Austria and I knew I wanted to visit it. It was only about an hour drive from our place in Weyregg am Attersee, Austria. The trick was – our place was up in the
Why are there no planes flying over us in Weyregg am Attersee, Austria? This is REALLY odd.
On of my most-used iPhone apps is Plane Finder. I love looking at what planes are above me and the app
Chris and I talked about a little getaway from Vienna. We knew we wanted to see the mountains near Salzburg and Innsbruck. Should we take a train? Or rent a car and wander? Should we stay in town with
Advent is almost here and Vienna’s Christmas spirit is already in the air! Down by St. Stephen’s Cathedral, the street vendors are selling roasted chestnuts and GlÃ¼wein (mulled wine).

When we came to Vienna from the United States, our dog James had to get a LOT of paperwork done. He needed a full health certificate filled out from our veterinarian in DC. And then we had to get that
Since James is a Poodle, he needs groomed often. We usually like to get him groomed every 4-6 weeks. When we were visiting the hospital and school on a regular basis as a therapy dog, I usually had James
So back to the topic of bad business decisions. I know you were wishing for a longer post last time but as it turns out we should have plenty to talk about from time to time just because people make bad
Ok, now we are getting a little crazy. Rap is art right? How can you automate art?
As it turns out you can automate rap, and it is not only easy it\’s fun. In fact there is an entire community around
You just never learn about some things until you run into issues while traveling. We have found quite a few and they have been completely absurd.
First of all, PayPal has a major flaw for being such
Not too long ago, June 28, 1914 to be exact there was an assassination that threw the world into the first World War. Assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria. Recently I visited the Army
One of the challenges we faced when arriving overseas was avoiding the international roaming charges from our cell provider. Of course they offer a plan to allow you to use your phone as is but it will
We were exploring PÃ¶tzleinsdorfer Schlosspark across town while James was at the Salon (more on that later) and we came across some amazing statues, four to be exact that seemed to be completely out of
I\’m going to try to summarize this as much as I can because it could go on for a really long time and I know you have other things to read today. But this all started while on a trip to New York City
Around the city of Vienna there are a few scattered remains of World War Two and the Cold War that you can\’t help but notice. The many socialist sculptures depicting working people and the few enormous
When we first arrived in Vienna we bought a small bag of grocery store brand dog food. Their selection was pretty slim- one kind of kibble and one kind of canned food. And it was orange. James didn’t
