Taking a Break

Hello there. I’m flattered that some of you have noticed that there’s been silence on my blog for a little while. Thanks for your interest. I suppose I’ve taken an unexpected hiatus from blogging. I’ve been busy with a number of work and life related priorities. Everything is fine, but I’m a bit distracted at the moment. … Continue reading

Crazy Fall Fun All Around Vienna

Crazy Fall Fun All Around Vienna

My calendar is becoming a bit angry with me. I keep adding excellent activities to it and it’s too full. Overlapping events that I will try to squeeze in and enjoy with my family.

Family-Friendly Weekend Mornings

Weekend mornings can be a bit tough in the winter when the park is no longer an option.  While it seems there are many things to do on the weekdays, the weekends get kind of sparse as places reserve their space for pre-registered kid classes. Rec centers and indoor play spaces are pretty much a no-go, … Continue reading
