Nancy left this afternoon from her home in Seattle, flying across the pond to Amsterdam and connecting there to Vienna. I leave tomorrow evening, going through London and arriving in Vienna late Saturday afternoon. There's apparently no short way to get there; at least we couldn't find one.
So, I've thought about packing for a few weeks now, but those of y'all who know me know the suitcases haven't even been pulled down from the shelves yet. I did get out my Christmas market boots, my Vienna folder, and the indispensible "Streetwise" laminated map.
I had to tell Rose that I was going on another trip. She wasn't very happy. I believe she thinks my lens protector is a crown, and, as you can see, she's ignoring the whole situation.
Let me get over there and set up, and I'll blog every night before I go to sleep. We're anticipating Christmas markets galore, as there are apparently eight within walking distance of our hotel. Also a palace or two, some museums, some Hundertwasser architecture, and a bit of classical music. I might even see those fancy ponies, Betsy! I'm also thinking gluwein, pastries, and some stick-to-your-ribs (I know I have some, somewhere!) food. It's cold in Vienna. The upcoming week has temps in the low 30's and 40's, maybe even a sprinkling of snow. Bring it on!
See you soon!
