Christmas in Vienna

On Christmas Day we went to mass and heard the Vienna Boys Choir. When the mass began the priests and this choir entered the church. When these men started to sing I was sure we had been had!

Then a few minutes later the boys choir started singing from the upper balcony. It was the most beautiful sound I have ever heard!

Vienna, Day 2

On Christmas Eve we had breakfast on Prater's Ferris Wheel. My husband loves the movie, The Third Man. This is the same ferris wheel that is in the movie. You can just go for a ride on it...or you can have a catered meal.

The views were amazing.

Happy New Year

I love the new year. It's a clean start, a fresh slate, a new beginning. I always have great plans for great things on this day, but before I get to that I have to go back and give you a little review of the Christmas holiday because this year it was a special one. The whole family met in Vienna, Austria to gifts, the trip was the gift, which meant no crazy last minute shopping for me! We spent five days in Vienna and two days in Salzburg. It was a dream come true!
We stayed in a beautiful hotel in the heart of the "Old City". We were able to walk everywhere and everytime we went out we saw something new. Here is what it looked like from our hotel window.

...and that was just the beginning! Stay tuned...
