Hi, from Vienna!

I am writing this after attending the Mozart Concert here in Vienna! We have so enjoyed strolling the streets finding old churches from the 10th century and locally-owned home, chocolate & clothing shops which feels so magical when you walk inside. Most of the architecture here is inspired by Gothic & Baroque making the buildings a true masterpieces. Now off for lunch and enjoying my new favorite wine, Riesling.  Looking forward to sharing this delicious meal with you inspired from the Danube River!

– Yours, Amanda Jean
