Die Besten Muffins

Monday, May 23rd, 2011

I discovered a book yesterday titled, “Die Besten Muffins.”  I am having a hard time saying the title because I’m pretty sure  it should be pronounced, “dee best in moofins.”  I can’t say moofins instead of muffins.  That aside, the pictures in this book have rekindled my love of muffins.  I used to eat so […]

I Walk the Lain(sitz) [River].

Saturday, May 21st, 2011

The walk of shame.  It’s not hard to find.  They’re those people walking bleary eyed across college campuses across the world at an hour in the morning earlier than they’ve ever been up for class.  They’re the people wearing last nights clothes but not so fancily anymore.  They’re the people who slept where they partied […]

Kinder Games

Tuesday, April 26th, 2011

Today I swung on swings in the park.  Someday soon I’ll have to take photos exclusively of the park.  Maybe I’ll do that tonight!  Night photos of a big playground will be sweet. As I was swinging, I remembered a game from my childhood.  As kids we seemed to look for every opportunity to throw […]

Austria: Two Weeks and Then Some

Friday, April 8th, 2011

  I’ve been here in Austria for a little more than 2 weeks.  That’s what I might consider the appropriate length of time for a vacation if I were a fine working businessman type person.  This would be the vacation that makes me quit my job.  Thank goodness this is my real life and not […]

Keep on Running

Friday, April 1st, 2011

Although I’ve only been here a week, I can’t help but find myself wondering, “is this where I belong?  Will I stay here?  What if I get a work visa and can stay indefinitely?  Will I want that?  Will I do it?” I love Austria, but I have to keep in mind that it is […]

First Week in Austria

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

So.  Has the Austrian Apple lost its schein?  No.  Not hardly.   What did I do today?  Well  I woke up at 7 AM, probably a few minutes after most of my loved ones at home went to sleep for the night.  I have been waking up every day minutes before my alarm.  I have […]
