So far this fall we've stayed in Luxembourg, beating our previous record for weekends at home by at least 3 weeks. To escape the wet and dreary climate in Lux, we decided to knock a few major cities off our Euro travel checklist by exploring Vienna, Austria and Prague, Czech Republic.
We spent the post-Holland tulip weekend recovering in warm, sunny Munich. Munich boasts pretty cathedrals and attractive architecture, but the most striking aspect of Munich is the ease of living. Its public transportation system runs like clockwork. There is a variety of ethnic food choices. Munich's parks are sprawling and spectacular. Everywhere you walk you can see people lounging and enjoying the weather.
With the Atlantic in between us and family this Easter, we decided to take a road trip to the Tyrolean Alps. Inspired by the new James Bond movie Spectre, we chose Sölden, Austria. Just north of the Italian border, Sölden is known for one of the longest continuous ski runs in the world starting from the peak of a glacier. Since the release of Spectre, it's become even more popular with people who want to visit the setting of the film. Back when we studied abroad in Florence, we took a memorable weekend trip to the Swiss Alps to visit a mountaintop locale featured in "On Her Majesty's Secret Service", so we jumped at the chance to hit up another Bond-approved spot.
