Take care of yourselves this lovely weekend folks. My travel plans for August are looking insane (Slovenia, Toronto and Greece within the month!) so this weekend I’ll be taking things slowly in Vienna, lapping up the European summer energy while it lasts. Lazy walks across warm courtyards with ice-cream in hand will be the order of the day. If you’re planning anything fun in town let me know in the comments!
