A few weeks ago, Robert and I made a trip to Austria (his homeland) for his friend Oliver’s wedding. We stayed in a castle (yes, a real castle!!) called the Schloss Weinberg in Kefermarkt. Of course I ate a weiner schnitzel (when in Rome, as they say…) We saw old friends and I was introduced to many new friends, most of whom live in Vienna (we will get there one day!) The ceremony was in a beautiful church and the reception dinner filled us up with typical and tasty Austrian cuisine. We went swimming in a (freezing cold!) lake in a nearby village (Sandl) and made a stop on our way home to Stuttgart to take a dip in the Danube (also freezing) in Linz. I’m still amazed at how many different countries, cultures, languages, and cuisines we can reach by car in just a matter of hours. I mean, just a month ago we were in France and it took us just 1.5 hours to drive there. I feel like a very lucky and spoiled girl…and I’m loving and appreciating every single moment of it.
