The Adventures Conclude

Ten+ hours to Barcelona

After two days in Barcelona we dropped my family off at the airport and continued through Interlaken back to Vienna.

A Closer Look

When our music teacher created this poster with the third grade class I thought it was pretty cool.  Until I realized she had missed an essential component.  Upon questioning it was discovered that she did not have an appropriate picture of this missing piece.  


So one day I stealthily rectified the situation.
