American Treasure

On today's adventure, Lottie and I swung into a large grocery store to grab some rolls for our picnic in the park. My usual store does sell packaged sliced 'wonder' type bread but it is stashed up out of reach high above the fresh rolls. Today like the star of the show, I all but stumbled upon loaves and loaves of US tost (toast) stacked on a table in the center of the bakery section.

   The glory of it being called US tost made me chuckle right out loud. In case you're curious, duza paczka is advertising that it is a large package.

Seasons change!

Yesterday's snowman became today's puddle and it looks as though the season of being cooped up in the apartment is over! Now that we've made it through our first Poland winter, I hope to have a lot more daily life adventures to share.

Winter Wonders

By fair definition, it is still winter here. My favorite piece of evidence is this tiny little snowman that we passed on the sidewalk while walking into town.

Discovering Mikulov

About two hours from our flat is a small yet glorious town in the Czech Republic called Mikulov. Surrounded by vineyards, Mikulov sits right in the heart of wine country with 1200 km of bike paths that cross the region with stops at wine cellars and tasting centers. I definitely have a lot more exploring to do here!

Easter in Vienna.

This last weekend we drove four hours to spend a four day holiday in Vienna. And it was cold. But it was also lovely and wonderful.
