HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU....HAPPY 50TH TODAY ROSCO!!! Firstly thanks for all the birthday messages and a couple of calls and texts.

And I promise i will get photos on this site today if it kills me! His day started with...

May 27, 2009 - Vienna!

Hi everyone! We have made it to Austria! It is SO much cooler here, thank goodness! We spent most of the day travelling from Venice to Vienna but spent the evening checking out the city and were able to grab some dinner in town. Our hostel is very nice and so far the city has a lot to offer in the way of culture (and shopping)! Even though we havent been here long I am starting to find the language barrier a little overwhelming. German is not a language that can be easily interpreted whether it be written, spoken or read! I had a moment of...

May 19, 2009 - To Austria

Tuesday 19 May Fair weather in London. George & Christine drove me to Luton airport (about 45 minutes) to catch the flight to Vienna at 1pm. It is a much smaller airport than Heathrow, but actually very busy with lots of checkin desks. I flew with EasyJet. Security this time involved removal of belts and shoes (the first time so far this trip). Checking was with passport only, which was also unusual. Seats were unallocated (just sit anywhere) The flight was only 2 hours, which was just time enough to read the newspaper. My nephew's wife...

May 13, 2009 - Happy Hour In Vienna

Vienna is my favorite city so far! I love how easy it is to get around, I love how friendly the people are, I love the coffee, and I absolutely love our hostel. Mark and I are having so much fun in Vienna. The weather has been amazing, and we are making tons of friends and getting lots of great travel tips. Our 1st night in Vienna was a gong show, we arrived checked in just time to discover it was “Happy Hour” at our hostel. Well, there is no sense of going anywhere when a stellar happy hour is in works. Yup, we were a little too eager at...

May 12, 2009 - Prague to Vienna

Just finished my three days in Prague and was pleased to be leaving...actually we all were. After hearing rave reviews about Prague I had the biggest expectations of the city and was a little disappointed. The disappointment may have been attributed to the poor location of our hostel or the fact that no one in Prague was friendly or that we continued to be rained on. My expectations for the city were quite high - even our tour guide was raving about the city and the fact that all of his friends were jealous he was spending a few days in...

May 12, 2009 - 8 Things We Would Do For Yummy Sushi Right Now.....

1. Sushi, Sushi......where art thou sushi? Apparently sushi isnt nearly the phenomenon in Europe as it is in Vancouver, BC. Finding quality sushi we realize is virtually impossible. Mark and I have enjoyed some pretty yummy food through out our travels but lets face it. Were sushi addicts and sometimes nothing else will cut it. Here is just a few sacrifices we would make right now if we could secure some yummy Vancouver style sushi. I would walk a hour and a half with my pack on for the sole purpose of finding a yummy sushi restaurant if I...

May 2, 2009 - Vienna

Today we walked into the center of Vienna down Karntnerstrasse, and had some free time to explore on our own. I went inside the large St. Stephens Church, then took the metro a few stops over to Hundertwasserhaus. Designed by Friedensreich Hundertwasser, these apartments have a surrealist feel to them, almost Gaudi-esk. I stopped and took pictures at the incredible colorful apartments, and looked at some of his abstract paintings in the museum. I couldn't imagine what it would be like to actually live in those apartments, as thousands of...

May 1, 2009 - Two Cities in One Day

Today we drove up to Gellert Hill, where we had gorgeous view over Buda and Pest. We stopped by the Liberation Monument (which some say looks like a can opener), then a few of us decided to skip the bus and instead walk down the hill. This turned out to be a not-so-good idea, because it took us forever to get all the way down the hill and over towards the river, and we were only given 3 and a half hours to explore the entire city We walked along the river for a while, and eventually found a cab, who took us into Pest and dropped us off in...

Mar 16, 2009 - Vienna, Austria

Monday March 16 - We were up at 6:00 am and off to Vienna, Austria. The drive was scheduled for 4 hours, but took us 6. We started out 20 minutes late leaving the hotel in Prague because three people forgot to pay their phone bills. Then it snowballed from there, unscheduled stops, traffic, etc. We finally made it and went on a guided tour of the Opera House, which should have been followed by a guided tour of the Schonbrunn Summer Palace. But as we were so far behind schedule we were allowed to go through the palace, but without guides and...
