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
Well yes they do! And Pringles Tortilla Chips are awesome too. We picked some up at the store… actually they were in the basket before I could fully understand the taste sensation I was about to
Near our place in Milan we kept passing this spot that we couldn’t figure out.
Was it a restaurant? Was it an office?
At times it seemed to be both and maybe more, so we decided to check it out and
We knew we wanted to see Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper while in Milan, Italy. But we also knew that you needed to get tickets in advance – sometimes weeks in advance! We didn’t plan far enough
I love window shopping! There are so many stores here in Milan that I enjoy walking past to see their window displays. They usually change them every day or so, too! They also put little signs next
We are really enjoying Milan, Italy! Here are some highlights of our visit so far!
James was due for a groom while we were in Milan so we took him to Dog Model. Luciana has lots of Barboni (Poodles)
Here are a few of our favorite photos from our stay in Verona, Italy!
You know you are in Italy when the grocery store has an amazing selection of fresh pasta:
The churches and cathedrals
We were walking around Verona, Italy one night and decided we should go check out Juliet\’s Balcony – Casa di Giulietta.
Three of Shakespeare\’s plays are set in Verona: Romeo and Juliet, The Two Gentlemen
It is funny how we didn’t really have a plan on what other cities we wanted to visit near Vienna. But somehow the right places found their way onto our calendar! Verona, Italy is one of those cities.
It is so much fun having James with us in Europe. So far, James has been a KÃ¶nigspudel in Austria and now here in Italy James is a Barboncino or Barbone!
So many people around us exclaim, “Barboncino!”
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).
The street vendors
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
