Skiing in Kitzbuhel: Round 2

Our family adventured to Kitzbuhel, Austria exactly 4 years ago when we lived in London.  It was our first road trip out of England and ventured through France, Belgium, and Germany to reach our Austrian destination.  This time, we just had to drive 5ish hours from Dresden.  But the drive still held some adventures.  Remember...

Saxon-Switzerland National Park

Königstein Fortress & Bastei Bridge It's always tricky planning these outings.  Not only do we have to do the research, find the location, figure out logistics and all, but then we have to put together a sales presentation for the kids.  That's sometimes the most difficult task.  How to get the kids excited to get...
