    Bike Austria

    July 16, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    There is no better way to see Europe than by bike. Riding under wild apricot and spoke trees along the river, through rain which added to the charm, across a punt generated by the river current and through a town translated into English ‘white Church’ that is so story book, so charming, so European I feel like I’m walking through a movie.

    Sound of Music

    July 16, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    All scenes from the movie. All very surreal to see. Our guide crushed a few of my romantic notions and liberties taken by Hollywood, BUT, I am leaving wanting to watch the movie again. Salzburg has a lot to see.

    Melk. Where i Could Live

    July 16, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    The Benadictine monks are still working in a property given to them not long after Christ. No history lessons are needed here.... documentation and learning happens from the standing stones left from previous generations... bodies pulled from the catacombs decorated and in the church, evidence via broken castles of the 30 year war if the 1600 against Protestants and Catholics, and solid beauty and prosperity in the building. History all written in stone. No paper needed.

    The herb healing garden with centuries of knowing is a highlight, the church opulence overwhelming. A town not overrun by tourism. Genuine feel that I could unpack slowly.

    Mozart Was Here

    July 16, 2018 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 23 °C

    His birthplace, his second home, and the memorial which makes him look taller with smaller ears, nose and less polio scaring. His music way overcompensates. His beauty transcends physical elements.
