Breathtaking Austria!

A short “girl’s trip” from Germany to Austria in the Mini Cooper.  Thanks to one of my best friends,  Caroline.  I felt like I was on the set of “The Sound of Music” except no Von Trapp family on this journey.

Magnificent lakeside and mountain views.

We HAD to stop and take pics of this tree.  Look at all the pots on the branches.

Caroline safely driving us through the glorious mountains! Also want to give a big Thank You to Mr. Metzger for loaning us the convertible. It made picture taking a lot easier.

When the Fly for MS pilots arrived at Oberschleissheim Airport, (just outside of Munich) it was really exciting .  It reminded me of the days when I was kid and waited with my dad for our relatives to arrive at JFK.  I mean can you imagine these two guys, Andrei Floriou and Keith Sillats left Republic Airport in Farmingdale, Long Island then crossed the ATLANTIC OCEAN in a 6-seater Cessna 340 nearly 2 months ago? I went up twice with them in the airplane trust me this isn’t  luxury flying.  Their mission: To raise global awareness for Multiple Sclerosis in 30 countries in 60 days.  No one has ever done this before, invested their own time and money so they can put smiles on faces of people living with MS. They are using their passion for flying to educate the public about MS, speak at conferences, talk with doctors about treatments, and give MS members city tours on board the Fly for MS plane.  All I can say is that last Saturday was the day I saw people in wheelchairs fly.

Thank you DMSG, (Oberschleisheim Airport for waiving landing & airport fees, the SUPER  MS Climbers “MS on the Rocks“ in Munich, my wonderful boyfriend, AJ and my great friend Caroline.

One of the pilot’s biggest challenges on this journey has been the high cost of fuel.  As little as $3 can help. To donate to Fly for MS please click on the following link  http://www.flyms.org/donateforms.html. Please help spread your wings and word about www.flyms.org.
