Hello again!

On Thursday Kelly and I arrived in Vienna .  The city feels much larger than Prague. The buildings and architecture are very impressive.  Here are just a few pictures of some of the buildings. .  We found a cozy little place to sit down and have an afternoon snack-lunch-dinner .  Afterwards, we decided to rent a car for the next day and drive to Salzburg!!  Kelly was definitely up for this trip - her favorite movie of all time was coming to life!  Julie Andrews would be proud. 

We got up early and picked up the car near the hotel.  Little did she realize what she would be in for with our weeee little car on the Autobahn.  This was fun, for awhile.  I was getting frustrated when I had the pedal on the floor just to maintain speed up over the hills and the Austrians were blowing by me in the little Smart Cars with big grins on their faces - grrrrr .

We stopped at a town called Melk .  Unbelievable castle along the Danube River , ,  .  We grabbed a quick sandwich and then headed onward.  We fed the squirrels in our car as well for faster pedalling.

Once in Salzburg, we went our Sound of Music tour.  Let me preface this by saying that we took more pictures here than our entire trip combined.  The city, the landscape, buildings were simply awesome.  This town is nestled in the base of the Alps and every time you turned around you could not believe your eyes.  Of course we played the role American tourists to a T and here some photos to prove it. ,

We are off to Budapest.  More to come!!

Andrew & Kelly:

Great to hear (and see!) that you guys are having a great time. Can't wait to hear all about the trip and see more pictures. We will have to do it over a good cup of coffee Kelly! We have had fabulous weather here and the trees are in their prime. Enjoy the rest of your trip and travel safe. Miss you guys and love you. Gret

So Long, Farewell, auf Wiedersehen, good night
Hi, Just wondering how the towing of the lightly packed luggage is going? Andrew, never believe a woman who says she will pack light especially a 'Jones Girl!' Things are getting back to normal here post wedding. The printshop is shut down never to be re-opened again! Enjoy the Honeymoon and be safe!

Mr. and Mrs. Carroll,

Glad to hear you are both having a good time! The pictures from Prague looked awesome and Kim really liked the picture of the Heinz logo. Andrew, are you feeling better, or was the 'cold' you referenced just symbolic for the shivers that run down your spine when you think of how much longer you will be stuck with Kelly on this trip? ;-)
I do have one request please - can you get a picture of Andrew in a pair of Lederhosen? That would make my year!
Have fun and be safe.
