Vienna Adventures – Day 3

The day started off a little rough for Papa. He needed to stay behind at the hotel due to illness. After another delicious hotel breakfast for ourselves we raced to catch the shuttle going into town. The shuttle dropped us off in front of the opera house and from there we walked to the Haus […]

The credit card we can’t travel without!

The best thing we have learned to make traveling easier is having the right credit card(s). Theresa mentioned that people have asked about how we get into airport lounges for free and it’s because of the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card. This is what’s known as a “premium” travel card as it costs $450 per year […]

Vienna Adventures – Day 2

We slept in till almost 9 again. I think we’re all a bit thrown by the time change. We enjoyed another wonderful hotel breakfast before taking an Uber to the Schonbrunn Palace. – Due to some excessive lines and bad times for the English speaking guides we decided to go with just the extended audio […]

Vienna Adventures – Day 1

We all slept late this morning. Called over to Papa’s room at 9am and woke them up! We all got ready and went downstairs for breakfast in the hotel. Again thanks to Ty’s work with credit cards we have a fancy status at this hotel and it earned us free breakfast. This was a savings […]

London to Vienna Travel Day

We had a bit of a leisurely morning since we woke up before our alarm. Showered and packed up before getting the hotel breakfast. We left the hotel about 10am and walked to the tube closest to our hotel. It was finally running again after being under maintenance, the entire time we’ve been here. With […]

London Adventures – Day 4

We all slept hard last night. At one point though L woke me up by repeatedly poking me in the eyeball for water. How did he even find my eye in the dark? Why did he walk all the way around the bed past his father for me? Mystifying parenting questions. But we all managed […]

London Adventures – Day 3

This was going to be our big sightseeing day. We set an alarm to wake up by 7. No one was happy about the alarm but breakfast at the hotel was nice and calm at least. Then we set off for the London Tower. We read it gets crazy during the day so we wanted […]

London Adventures – Day 2

We slept in a bit today which was really nice! After breakfast at the hotel which was a total mad house. Like as soon as staff would bring something out it’d be gone in 30 seconds and they ran out of clean cups and plates. 😬 We managed to get enough to feed ourselves and […]

London Travel & Day 1 Adventures

So we left New York City bright and early. Got to JFK airport just fine. We had two hours before our flight so we went to the lounge. Ty’s got that system figured out with the right credit card that gets us into about 80% of the lounges out there. It’s a life saver when […]

New York City Adventures

Oh my, we did all the walking today! Over 21k steps (roughly 10 miles)!!! And I’d say 90% of that was just in Central Park. What an impressive space. We moved over to our new hotel and grabbed a donut breakfast along the way. Then we headed up to explore Central Park. You can see […]
