Vienna Austria

While travelling through Europe this year we stopped in Vienna. I had no idea why I wanted to go there or what I wanted to see, I just knew I wanted to visit it! And when we started looking up what to do there, we were blown away at the amount of things you can do and see, and the best part is a lot of it is free! We visited so many palaces and gardens, they were all so amazing! The landscaping, sculptures and architecture were stunning! My favorite place was probably Schonbrun, the arch ways of vines and lilacs were incredible, and those greenhouses that look like early 1900’s architecture with the wirey metal structures, amazing! And once you hike through all of the gardens and up a very large hill, you have the most amazing views! and on the way back down there are so many more things and sculptures and fountains you can stop and see! While in Vienna we stayed at a hotel right across the street from the Opera, it was the perfect location to see most things via walking and hop on the trains to visit the farther sights! I must say the one thing I always pictured when I thought of vienna was the biggest let down of all and that was Hunderwasser House. I didn’t realize it was just a painting on the side of a building until we made it all the way out there, save your time, visit more palaces instead!

A few words from Kristine: Where my husband is from in Ireland, they tend to plan pretty epic parties for the day after a wedding.  To be honest, we had ours booked before the actual wedding!
Marcus is from a small place called Collorus in County Kerry.  He grew up on the water and across the bay, is his local pub.  It goes by many names, most commonly Kilmackillogue (thanks to the pier in front of it) and Helen’s Bar, after the owner.  It is one of the most beautiful settings you can imagine.  The drive in is a bit hairy with narrow windy roads.  But when you suddenly clear the brush, you are blessed with a stunning view of the ocean on your left and Helen’s Pub on the right.
We chose Helen’s because it has such an important place in our life.  Marcus grew up spending time there and I have spent at least one christmas eve celebrating with friends and family there.  It was one of the first places I visited when I first went to Ireland.
Our night was a mix of great food, fantastic live bands that included impromptu performances by guests and a traditional Irish music band that brought back memories for many of the locals who celebrated with us.
Helen and her right hand woman Pauline helped us plan the absolutely perfect day, rain or shine.  We feel so blessed that we could share such a special place with all of our friends and family from all over the world.
