Glad to be back in Graz


1476 kilometers in 4 days and 5 nights. We took a whirlwind trip through Salzburg to Munich and then up to Regensburg and over to Prague and then back through Vienna to Graz.

It made me appreciate was an extrodinarily beautiful old town we have here in Graz. Certainly one of the best-preserved and historic city centers in all of Europe.

Prague is amazing too. It is the #1 tourist destination in Europe now, surpassing Paris and Rome. And for good reason. It is just perfect. You really feel like you are experiencing a part of Europe that is 150-200 years old or older. There are no new buildings and all of the streets are cobbled. Kind of like Disneyland.

My wife says she prefers her hometown, Graz, with its interesting juxtaposition of old and new. After all, people live here–it ain’t just for the tourists. It is alive.

But, I suggest not missing Prague. But, if you can, don’t go in February–it is too damn cold.
