Making My List & Checking It Twice

Christmas List? No, just a packing list. Yes the travel bug has struck again and we are off to Vienna, Austria on Thursday. Can you say COLD? We being Frank, my cousin Shirley and me. Shirley and I were in Vienna a few years ago to start our "find some of Shirley's relatives in Romania" quest. We did, but that is another story. 


I cannot imagine anything that would put us in the Christmas spirit like walking the snow covered streets of Vienna searching for a Christmas Market, and attending an Advent Concert in St. Stephen's Cathedral. 


Check back periodically for updates from the trip. Now, do I have everything I need on my list? Hat? Check; Scarf? Check; Gloves? Check... and more!

Vienna should be awesome! Just avoid consuming yellow snow (my one and only bit of winter survival knowledge). :-)

I'm sure you all will have a great time. I'm looking forward to the posts and pics!

Paul, Thanks for those words of wisdom. But what about walking on icy sidewalks? Sorry I just had to mention that.

I clearly have no advice on walking on icy sidewalks... other than to do it in a manner not like me. To be fair though, I only slipped because I was carefully looking out for the yellow snow. ;-)
