Hello from Austria

Pixlr (4)And back in Europe again. Hello from Austria. :) Yesterday was pretty rough with the jetlag but I am feeling better today. Left New York Friday night and arrived in Vienna on Saturday morning. My flight landed a little early so I was able to catch the 8.33 am train from the airport which got me to St. Poelten at 9.28 am. My dad picked me up from the train station and we spent some time at my parent's house before heading out to lunch at 1pm. 

Spent the rest of the day hanging out, watching some TV and just spending time. We also watched the 2nd Mama Mia movie that I got my parents as a gift so we watched it together. The music was good, the story a bit flat. But it was enough to keep me awake which was really the goal. :) 

Today I slept till a little after 9am which gave me a glorious 12 hours of sleep and really helped re-set myself. Went to lunch at a Heurigen (a vineyard that also sells food at certain times of the year) and spent some time eating, trying various wines and hanging out. Eventually headed back and spent some more time in the house. Now watching TV with my mom. Really the main goal of the trip, to be here and spend time.

Tomorrow we are meeting my aunt for lunch and to celebrate her birthday which was last Friday. Tomorrow I am also back to work as I am working while here Monday through Thursday. I am lucky in the regard that I can do my job from just about anywhere as long as I have my laptop, internet and a phone. And well my management's permission of course. :) 

I'll try to update again before I leave Austria a week from today, next Sunday. We'll see how that goes.
