Traveling and Crazy Contraptions....

Just a couple pictures from our travel day on Sunday. We gathered all of our bags to load them into the car. Jon said, "seriously why do we have all of this stuff, we're going to be gone for two weeks." I had to take a picture because this is just crazy ridiculous.

We did pack stuff to make for dinner several nights during the week, because we are both trying to eat healthier. Going to a restaurant means too much food and too much wine! So it is better for the both of us to just eat dinner at home.

As we got on the road it started snowing......... of course. But really the drive was smooth and it really didn't seem like a 6 hour drive. Maybe because we were driving 100 mph the entire way there???? No matter how fast you drive on the Autobahn, there are still crazy fast drivers passing you!

Had to capture a picture of the sky because it looked beautiful. The sun was just trying to shine through.

This is a picture of the apartment we are staying in. It is really nice and very spacious for an apartment in Europe.

After getting settled and unpacked we headed to the nearest restaurant for dinner. It was actually a great choice. Very cozy and they had great Viennese wine.
After dinner we made made our way back to the apartment because it was freezing and we were down right exhausted from the trip.
Ok guys..... seriously the shower in this apartment is awesome. The shower at our place back in Deutchland is AWFUL!
This is a two person shower, with jets placed right above two seats, three shower heads above, and not to mention the shower can be turned in a sauna!

So of course we had to try this thing out! We turned on the water and the sauna to get the full effect of this mean machine. As we are sitting there relaxing and enjoying the warmth, Jon starts coughing a little. I ask him if he's ok, and shortly after, I start coughing. After a few seconds we both are coughing uncontrollably and put two and two together realizing the steam from the sauna is about to cause us to pass out. We slam the doors open gasping for fresh air and jump out of this contraption. So much for a nice sauna shower! lol

More exciting stories and pictures to come from the Adventures of Jon and Steph!

I looovvveeee hearing about your travels! And that shower is so cool looking! I think I would love it, minus the cough-inducing sauna feature :)

That shower is AMAZING!!!!! (Minus the fact that it made you cough!) I can't wait to show the picture to Ryan...he's always going on about someday wanting this insanely elaborate shower!

I laughed so hard when I saw the picture of the suitcases! I am the same way! When we went on our honeymoon (we were gone for 10 days) we brought 6 suitcases! No matter where I'm going, I always, always overpack. It's annoying and I wish I could quit doing it, but as anal as I am, it's not gonna happen!

Keep the pictures coming! I love reading/seeing your travels!

I was seriously laughing out loud at this post!!! I must admit I was extremely impressed with the shower, then once I read about the coughing, I was out!
The driving sounds a little wild! Do you guys feel the pressure to drive fast to keep up with the pace? I might be in trouble...I got points taken off my driving test for going too slow...ha!
Glad you all are having fun!*Thanks for the laugh sister...I needed it*
