Venue Review: Steppentierpark

Tucked away near to one of the most beautiful places you can visit in Austria (Burgenland) is this small but cute zoo called Steppentierpark It’s actually more of a petting/feeding farm.

Review: Big Bus Tour Vienna

No matter where I travel to in the world I always enjoy doing a ‘Big Bus’ tour. It’s a great way to pack in some key points and snippets of history in a short period of time. Weather permitting, it’s also quite fun to sit up top! Prime viewpoint of the city with a bit […] Read more…

LEGO obsessed Nate wanted nothing more than a LEGO/ Ninjago themed party! His wish was my command! We found Bricks 4 Kidz in Vienna and made it happen!

Venue Review: Eternel Clinic Facial

It is always very important for me to take great care of my skin and get a facial every few months. Now if only I could stick to a strict regime…rather than fall asleep putting the kids to bed each night…forgetting to wash my face and moisturize like a hot mess…I would probably look 5 […] Read more…
