A little trip to Austria




Laughter is an instant vacation.

 Ha, ha, but even though friends, vee are also sneeking in a week in Austria - just for a change ;) I feel like we've had a lot of stress so far and we do look forward to some time out. The nice thing about Austria is, that the clocks still seem to be going a little slower there. The morning air feels like champagne and the soft lakewater is so lovely for a swim. 

Life is really nice and quiet in the seaside village called "Steindorf", were we stay. It's really like a second home to me, since i've spent almost all my childhood summers there, in the house of my grandparents that now belongs to my bro. We'll be meeting my sister and her family - see us on the last picture,  having a picnic at the "Schwimmbad".

So long lovelies, see you back soon for a fabulous time in Paris, hosted by my friend Anita. from Castles, crowns and cottages .

  8. Oh-I'm super jealous! I've wanted to go to Austria ever since I was little and first saw The Sound of Music (still my favorite movie). Those mountains blow me away!

  13. Schöön! Wir wohnen hier auch direkt an der Grenze nach Österreich, fahren aber viel zu selten rüber!
    Meist nur zum Tanken - Schäm!!!!
    Viele liebe Grüße
