Sporty Empress: she worked out regularly and check what she had installed in her office!

I take inspiration from details wherever I find them and Vienna certainly has no shortage of subtleties… Whether in art, architecture, music, food or Christmas ornaments, the place is brimming with human innovation steeped in historic depth… Amazing, exciting & challenging your senses to awaken and for you to imagine a world full of infinite artistic possibilities & human potential…
Naturhistorisches Museum Wien:
Hotel Palais Coburg (and a Marie Antoinette dress casually displayed):
Christmas Markets, mulled wine & hot coco…
Castello di Vicarello (Poggi del Sasso)
After a good meal, it’s time to work it off village-style!
I tried running away, but they’re everywhere!
and along the way we saw this amazing sunflower🌻 field…
And we finally arrived in Italia 🇮🇹…
Made it & now I just can’t wait to start shaking those beads on the dance floor!
Since we’re kicking off our summer in Beirut and right in time for this weekend’s Father’s Day, we thought we’d take the kids for a stroll in the gorgeous AUB Mediterranean campus, where their dad did his freshman year… Memories, nature, stories, ☀️, endless questions (e.g. papa, c’est là que tu prenais le goûter?; elle est où la classe de papa?), mischief & dreams… 🚀
