Very Vienna

We went to Vienna for a festive Christmas weekend. This was Phoebe’s fourth trip in two months and for the fourth time she was a delight. As the smallest passenger on the train (left) and plane, she also gets the most attention. Special seatbelts and hot water are always delivered immediately, and for a refreshing change, with a smile. Upon landing, one of our Dutch flight attendants even asked excitedly, “Oh! Can I carry her?” Cute.

Now about Austria. Their capital city was indeed decked out for the season with twinkly lights draping every street.

And instead of silver bells, every street corner served mulled wine, apple cider and a hot home brew called punsch.

The city itself is stately and beautiful. Old, intricate architecture everywhere.

And don’t forget the pastries, starting with apple strudel.

Mmm.
