Over the weekend, the last part of our holiday travels this season took place and thus, I would like to conclude this post series. We went to Vienna. Not for the first time, the program was not that touristic. I think I will summarize some tipps from this trip in another blog post, soon. Back to the train travels. In short: We were lucky. On the way to Vienna, the first train arrived on schedule with not even a minute delay.
It’s that time of the year, where I enjoy watching „Home Alone“. It’s one of those Christmas Movies warming my heart. Every time I watch it, I wonder how crazy rich the McAllisters are if they can afford traveling from Chicago to Paris over Christmas with 15 people, four of them in first class. Lucky me I don’t have to wonder anymore: the NYT asked three economists to estimate the wealth of Kevin’s family.
Good news needs to be shared, too. This is a short one. The second part of our Christmas Travels went like a charm. We boarded the first train at 08:47, made all connecting trains without any rush and arrived at 16:45 with just 15 minutes delay in Stuttgart. Thank you SBB & DB. 🚃🚋🚂 After the chaotic first trip, this was a blessing. Two more train-days planned. Fingers crossed there will also be short postings about them 🤞
Yesterday marked the first day of our Christmas Travels. And unfortunately, the strike - which I mentioned in the first post - hit us. Not directly, but it’s after-effects. 👷♂️🪧 This is how our travels went Luckily, my wife was awake at night and saw that our train was cancelled. She immediately booked seats in an alternative connection. The new connection started half an hour earlier - thus our morning routine had to be accelerated.
Only a few more weeks until the Christmas Holidays. As our family lives in various parts of the country, it takes some effort to organize that we can all see each other. The holidays are travel times. This week, I booked the train tickets for our travels. It will be the first time, we‘re doing this with a baby and I am not sure if we can carry all the luggage, but - I like train rides, especially in winter.
