Ah, sweet exhaustion.  After a full day of work, I walked the 25 minutes home to meet my hubby and our yellow lab, Jackson.  Our mission: to unpack our powder blue Hyundai, which arrived today at Fischamend.  Jon drove it home, which proved to be an exercise in patience, as the motorway was jammed according to usual protocol.  Can we simply say, 'Thank God for GPS?'  CoPilot Live, you're a life saver for expats!
In any case, the furniture and other worldly possessions are schedule for home delivery tomorrow afternoon, and then the real unpacking will begin!
One vital piece of advice for anyone relocating to Austria - plan on most expenses you are advised to budget for actually doubling when it comes time to pay, and expect some vendors to require cash or wire transfer.  Not that knowing this  in advance would have changed our minds...
More later, after my nap;)
