Landgut Moserhoff is a “working farm/ petting zoo, /resort” in Penk, Austria, and the destination wedding  location  for my  dear long time family friend.   The  place has  a main house and several  guest cabins, along with a spa room, a chapel and a play house.  There is also a playground,   swimming hole and a hot tub.  Being a working farm there was  also  2 barns, many horses to ride, rabbits, guinea pigs, dogs and  cats to pet, chickens to chase, and  goats  and  sheep  to watch.  Besides all of the wedding festivities, there so much  to  see and do , that  there was never  a idle moment.

Everywhere I looked there was something beautiful…..

Homey spots to sit and relax…..

Interesting  and ingenious  home crafted items….

This was the main house  and our apartment came with the top balcony you can see that is lined with flowers.

My alpine bedroom  also came with a full kitchen,  sitting area and balcony.

There was a swift  creek swollen with the melting  mountain snow  running  behind the property.

The mountainous scenery, the sound of the creek and the perfect weather was a perfect way to melt away any stress.

The peonies were just starting to bloom….

Farm necessities…..

Blooms and hidden treasures…..

More beautiful scenery…..

Our chariot  awaits  to take all of us  up the  mountain for the  wedding!  Sometimes a  spine tingling ride if you dare look out  and see the drop offs, but  the  smell of the genuine  pine trees was the best aromatherapy  ever.

This was the incredible  setting for the wedding.

Zooming in past the tree tops at the wedding setting…..

Last but not least, meet the newlyweds, Corrinney  and Christian!!!

Thanks to the new husband and wife for such a fun weekend!!

Thanks for reading!

Hope you enjoyed!



First Full Day in Vienna, Austria

Wednesday, October 21, 2009


What a super day! Vienna was transformed from overwhelming to wonderful today! It is a beautiful city, very clean, feels very safe and very upscale. Culture and classiness is everywhere. There are more than you can imagine of concerts, museums, churches, pallaces and cafes ( with yummy looking pastries) to spend your time and money. Vienna also have so much public transportation, that if you ask someone how to get somewhere, they immediately tell you about a bus or tram, etc, – even if it is just a couple of blocks! Never do they suggest you walk. :
The absolute highlights of my day was I got to see 2 of my top favorite original paintings!
The 1st was “The Kiss” by Gustov Klimt and it is in the Schloss Belvedere -worth the price of the ticket itself-( the photo of me is in the ” backyard” of the Belvedere) and also I saw “Jean Renoir Sewing”, by, of course, Renoir. Absolutely incredible and gorgeous!
I also saw, in the Augustinian Church, ( where the Hapsburgs hearts are kept in a vault) the most heart moving memorial I have ever seen. The photo can’t begin to do it justice – you’ll just have to trust me.  I’ve also noticed that Vienna  loves statues – they are everywhere and in great detail!
BTW – I may have been starving in Prague ( since all they had were Wursts), there is no such problem in Vienna – I found the greatest fish place -you get a huge plate of fish and vegetables for just 10 Euro and it is the best. I had both lunch and dinner there today. It is called Nordsee – in case you ever stumble upon one. Be sure to tune in tomorrow……
