Good morning! I hope you had a nice weekend wherever you were. Here in Vienna the weather was beautiful so Big Chuck and I decided to take full advantage, who knows how long it will be before we see sunny skies and feel warm temperatures again... ahhhh Fall.

On Saturday we strolled around the old part of the city. We actually discovered some new streets and even a new church. There are so many churches in Vienna, it boggles the mind!

scooter

There are also lots of courtyards. We glimpsed the super cute red scooter and just couldn't resist taking a picture.

On Sunday we went for a hike in the Wienerwald, or the Vienna woods. We hiked up to Kahlenberg and enjoyed winding our way through the vineyards.

house

There were some really cute houses on our way into the woods. It would be such a lovely place to live, barely any car traffic and only minutes from the vineyards.

The goal of the hike was actually to find a Heurigen (a little pub/tavern in the woods, as seen in the picture above)...



...and ultimately two glasses of Sturm. Sturm (storm) is the "new wine" from this year. It's only available for a few weeks in the Fall after the grapes have been harvested. It's sweet and light and goes straight to your head, well at least to mine. I must confess I was a little wobbly as we began our trek back down the hill.

Have a great Monday!
