East to West: Burgenland to Ost Tirol
With all the work of the basketball camp and Finny's birthday celebration behind us, we started our journey with Luki to Ost Tirol...a drive up into the high mountains and the embodiment of what most people picture when they think of Austria.  But how could...

BBQ and Soccer in Hirm
One of the challenges of leaving your regular life for a month of holidaying around Europe is the real-life things that continue to need your attention back home. Eric and I found a somewhat happy middle ground of doing a bit of work every couple of days wh...

Ludwisgburg and Tamm
The one nice thing about a bit of rain is that there's less pressure to get up and seize the day. After a few packed days in Paris, it feels like a nice change of pace to be a bit more relaxed in rainy (at least right now) Ludwigsburg.  We had a good sleep ...

Tamm-Stuttgart
We woke up just a stone's throw from the apartment we lived in when we brought baby Molly home from the hospital. I have a special place in my heart for this spot...the little village where we became a family.  The view we had from our window The front door...
