Goodbye Europe ... until we meet again

ViennaAnd here we are. It's my last night in Europe. My flight leaves tomorrow at 10.40 from StpoeltenVienna. Catching the train from St. Poelten at 6.32 so I need to get up at 5. Not particular fun but hey it is what it is, right?  HairFriday I had my hair appointment and spent a good amount of that day at the hairdresser. But hey I am not complaining. It gave me a chance to read some more chapters of my book (reading the latest Laura Childs Tea Shop Mystery book) and the end result turned out beautiful as always. There is a reason that I end up only getting my hair colored here at my hairdresser in Austria who I trust explicitly. She takes care of my fragile hair and the colors always turn out beautiful and last for ages. The best of all words really. 

Saturday I went into Vienna and the day just flew by. Managed to stop at the post office to mail a few things and met up with four friends that day, three in Vienna (Johannes, Lydia & Claudia) as well as one in St. Poelten (Anneliese) Was great seeing everybody and catching up. The weather was pretty decent as well and cleared up as the day went on as well. Walked around a lot, had some delicious food and drinks, and just fun hanging out with friends. 

Today, Sunday, I spent most of the morning packing up everything. Always a bit of a challenge when there are a lot of souvenirs coming home. But my mom helped with bubble wrapping all the more fragile things (like bottles of wine, olive oil, etc.) and hopefully everything will work out ok. For lunch we ordered from an Italian place in the next town over. Had some pizza delivered as well as some delicious pork cutlets wrapped in ham and cheese in a white wine sauce with rice. Yum. 

Then later in the afternoon my aunt stopped by and we took advantage of the nice weather and sat outside in the garden for a while. Afterwards I went to see my great uncle (he's almost 94) Always nice to see him. When I got back I watched some TV with my mom. We found a nice TV movie to watch. And well now it's time for bed since I need to get up at 5am. 

So my next post will be back from the US, most likely next weekend. Hopefully by then I will have shaken most of the jetlag. Always the most dreaded part. At least getting up in the morning and going to work is not bad but once the afternoon hits I am more or less done.
