Klimt, Pussies, Opera

AUSTRIA | Sunday, 12 Jul 2015 | Views [425]

Yesterday was a busy day. After breakfast, I started the day at the Belvedere Museum, looking at the artwork of Gustav Klimt.  I  have heard of Klimt before-from the movie "Back to School" with  Rodney Dangerfield. At the very beginning ... Read more >


Walkin in Vienna

AUSTRIA | Saturday, 11 Jul 2015 | Views [346]

  Yesterday for the first time I ran  a  little bit in the morning, which was a good idea, and got the day started right, as I had my sneakers purchased the day before.   With the hop-on hop-off bus ticket I purchased the ... Read more >


Let's Get Freaky!

AUSTRIA | Friday, 10 Jul 2015 | Views [359]

I enjoy freaking people  out. And this isn't hard, especially since I am 45 and staying with a lot of people in their 20's.  Girls from the US are particularly easy to freak out.  Perhaps because people from  other countries (men ... Read more >

Vienna For the Cheap and Really Really Skinny

AUSTRIA | Friday, 10 Jul 2015 | Views [338] | Comments [1]

One nice thing about hostels, at least in some European cities, is that they provide maps/guides specifically for young hip budget travelers.  Now I may not be in the intended audience, since- (A) Don't have any tattoos, ... Read more >

Climb every Mountain-Find Your Cool

AUSTRIA | Wednesday, 8 Jul 2015 | Views [365]

Yesterday was my final day in Salzburg. I really didn't have much to see yesterday, but it was so nice having my own hotel room-that I decided to enjoy it for a final day (plus I didn't feel like packing up just yet) And once again, it was in the ... Read more >


High Culture Low Food

AUSTRIA | Tuesday, 7 Jul 2015 | Views [335]

Yesterday, I did two big things-I took bus #25 to Mount Untersberg, a mountain with a cable car.  The views we're gorgeous, and it was peaceful up there.  I met a woman who told  me to go to Innsbruck, where she was from in Austria,for ... Read more >

From the Hostel to the Frying Pan

AUSTRIA | Tuesday, 7 Jul 2015 | Views [327]

Yesterday, I checkout of the hostel and into a hotel. The hostel was ok-it was part of a chain of hostels called "Meininger", which is in various European cities.  I guess they are trying to be one of the few chains in a highly fragmented industry.... Read more >

They Tried to Make Me Go to Rehalp

SWITZERLAND | Friday, 3 Jul 2015 | Views [594]

One thing I like to do when I travel is ride tram, and subway lines to interesting sounding stops.  I saw a streetcar headed to  Rehalp. I had no idea what was there. Of course, Rehalp reminded me of the Amy Winehouse song. I took the 22 minute ... Read more >

Zurich Beautiful

SWITZERLAND | Tuesday, 30 Jun 2015 | Views [394]

Yesterday, I checked out of the YMCA and left Basel. I am glad I did. The YMCA was sort of weird and a pain in the ass-and it has nothing to do with the big black guy who  basically slept next to me for one night-which he did.  There was a ... Read more >

Final sprinkle of Basel

SWITZERLAND | Monday, 29 Jun 2015 | Views [337] | Comments [1]

Yesterday, I spent one last day in Basel. Not because I thought there was so much more to see here, but simply because the day before I was out in other parts of the country from 10:00 am until after midnight-so I didn't feel like packing up, checking ... Read more >
