I never thought I'd be headed to Vienna for less than the price of a new pair of pants at Express. We've had a love-hate relationship with the Sky Europe website these last weeks, getting excited about advertised sales from Sofia only to watch the site crash or the page where we actually buy the tickets fail to load. But this week Brett's persistence paid off and we are headed to Vienna in January for a long weekend of Austrian culture and food and a lot of admiring the Alps. 

On a related note: Betsy Ray, famous fictional redhead from the "Betsy, Tacy, Tib" series, spends the first two months of her European year in Vienna in the classic novel "Betsy and the Great World." She loves it, which seems to bode well.  I'm not so sure there is a children's book called "Brett and the Great World" but I have a feeling he'll love it too...
