Bye bye Europe .. till we meet again :)

1546250_10154908787150646_3921555671702733215_nAnd here we are .. already on our way back to the US. Where have the last 10 days gone? 

Had a nice time but of course as expected the days just flew by. Makes sense when you are constantly on the move. :) Our last day in Prague was nice and even saw the sun for a bit, one of the very few times of our trip. The train ride back to Vienna went smooth as well. Once we arrived in Vienna we checked in at our hotel (the Ramada Encore, which just opened - great hotel and very convenient location for public transit) and then headed downtown to have dinner at Maredo. 

Friday we walked over to Schoenbrunn Castle and spent some time at the Christmas market there and tried a bunch of the foods. Afterwards we headed back into downtown for some lunch. Then eventually back to St. Poelten with a stop at a Billa (local grocery store) to stock up on chocolates and my usual staples like soup mixes etc. 

Saturday and Sunday we spent with my parents and family, visiting with relatives. My mom is starting another rehab session tomorrow until January 4. So there was some preparation to be done for that too. 

Now we are in Istanbul after having gotten up a bit past 3am (ugh) and connecting back to JFK in a bit. Not looking forward to the 11 hour flight. But oh well. 

Mail Update: Letters went out on Friday to: Carmen/Malta and Laura/Spain. Have letters written to Charles/TN, Katie and Jessica/DE that need to be mailed once we get back to the US. Owe replies to: Tiffany/OK and Celia/MA. The letter from Nina/WA is still in US postal mail purgatory somewhere.
