What's great about living in Vienna, is the fact that I can jump on a plane and be back home within an hour and a half! It's so ridiculously easy compared with the pain of traveling from the American west coast to Scandinavia. So, Friday I went back home for the first time after moving to Austria to meet my new nephew and to spent some time with the whole family for two and half intense days. It was GREAT to be see everybody again, and reflect a bit on life in Vienna from a distance. Weather was great and the fall colors amazing. Vienna is not so colorful - yet. I am definitely going to take advantage of the fairly cheap air fares again, so I can visit soooon.
