Aug 13, 2013 - Last day in Austria

August 13 -Day 17 Today we left Vienna and headed to Graz, Austria for our first exhibition game. The trip to Graz was a beautiful one as the landscape of the Austrian countryside is very beautiful. We stopped in the downtown centre of Graz for about an hour and a half, once again the buildings found in the square had a lot of character . We did not have a lot or time to wander around before heading to the hotel. The boys won their first game this evening against a team in Graz , Austria . It was a more physical game then they have seen...

Aug 24, 2012 - Austria - Graz

12th & 13th August 2012 (Bed 62) Today we are back in Austria in the town of Graz. It is funny how quickly you can become complacent with an area and stop admiring its surroundings. Having been to Austria in 1991, although different, the towns are very familiar to us. When this happens, you know that a change in scenery is in order. Don’t misunderstand me, Graz is a lovely town. It has some amazing things to see, with its beautifully decorated building, compact streets and unusual architecture. While it was great wandering round and seeing...

Feb 16, 2012 - Day 41 - "Penthouse Suite?!"

Just a quick one today really to put my marker on the map, as little has happened, other than the usual to be honest. The Mistelbach hotel was lovely, and we enjoyed a delightful lunch there Wednesday lunchtime, which was also great for the fact I managed to get Luke and Hannah to sit and have a meal together and chat, so alls good there. We watched Naked Gun in the evening too! The show today was pretty awful if I'm honest. We'd arrived, what with only having one show today in high spirits... which were quickly dispersed by the very rude...

Feb 3, 2012 - Day 28 - "I Love You Luke!!!" [embarrassed cough]

Two shows today in different locations.. and because of the weather, it was even more annoying to be having to load and unload the van - slipping on ice and snow! Hannah drove to the first, which was in a tiny hall in Hallstat, where the entire show was interrupted by a helicopter flying over head - seems they were delivering materials to a new hut being built up the side of the mountain. She then took us onto Ebensee, where we were greeted by a brilliant little fella who gave us coffee, and kept (I assume) trying to tell us jokes, in...

Jul 4, 2011 - Retrouvailles à Graz

J’abandonne mon idée de stop a travers l’europe de l’est. Je suis resté bien plus longtemps que prévu en Bulgarie (pour le mieux) mais maintenant ça ne me laisse plus assez de temps pour le reste. Je suis en phase terminal de voyage et je me permet de cibler selon mes desirs. Mon frère Daniel à passé 5 mois à la ville de Graz, en Autriche, en échange erasmus. C’est sa dernière semaine avant qu’il ne rentre également en France. Je décide de le retrouver là-bas et passer quelques temps avec lui avant un retour définitif. Je prend donc un bus...

Jul 29, 2009 - packwahnsinn

heut in einer woche verlasse ich das flugzeug und befinde mich auf absolut unbekannten terrain, meine sachen sind mehr oder weniger gepackt und mein kopf ist von meiner erkältung so dumpf das jegliche regungen wie aufregung, angst und vorfreude sich in einer samtenen leere verlieren, momentan gibt es also noch nicht viel zu sagen haltets mir die daumen, wird schon schief gehen :)

Jul 4, 2008 - Schloss Seggau

I've just finished five days in a castle. Schloss Seggau was a very disorienting experience, but in a pleasant way. The showers had hot and cold water and pressure at all hours of the day. The lights never went out without warning. No one promised me something and then never delivered. I got paid, very well, for my four sessions, and then they paid for my trip here, and my trip away, and even bought a train ticket for me to fill in my itinerary. The food was free, and there was lots of vegetarian fare. There was even brown bread! People...

Jul 1, 2008 - Slovenia

A flight from blissful Skopje to Ljubljana...Load weighs exactly as much as he did at the beginning of the trip, which is odd because I've been shedding stuff right and left. He's been eating on the side, the slacker. Slovenia passed by in a blur, as it usually does on my trips, but at least this time I was working instead of merely taking advantage of my friend Jason's hospitality. I mean, I did that, too, and Jason and Alenka were wonderful hosts, as they always are. I managed to wolf down as much of Jason's cooking as I could in one...

Feb 3, 2008 - Vienna to Graz and back

Today I was up at 0600 and had a shower before waking Shane and Kayla for breakfast. Although breakfast was good it was only a glorified continental breakfast. Needless to say we were all disappointed, some more than others. There were scrambled eggs with cheese but there wasn't any bacon, ham or potatoes. There was a selection of fruit, breads, cold cereals, yogurt, sliced meats, sliced cheese, orange juice, tea and real coffee. After finishing breakfast we headed up to the room and packed up our bags. We then headed down to the lobby to...

Oct 31, 2007 - Grundlsee

Grundlsee is on a small lake in Central Austria. We spent three great days with Mal, Kristy and their friends. The scenery is stunning and the friendship fantastic. We spend each night playing Balderdash well into the night. Spend the days walking and visiting towns around the area. Again it is a public holiday weekend (All Saints Day) and we had no idea. The photos tell a much better story than anything I can write here. We do discover Tauplitz or "Top Lake" to us. The Nazi's hid their gold and treasure at the end of the war. Yes, they...

Hi, it's me Calista. Attached is a picture of a really fun tire swing that my brother and me played on at a really fun park in Graz. Also attached is a picture of a quite high climber that is made of rope (inside the Mur Insel). It even has a slide hiding in the back of it. I hope I can go back again. Bye for now. Hi, it's me Noah. I am having LOTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OF FUN!! We went to this island thing with a climber on it. Bye for now. Hi, it's Rose Marie.

Apr 3, 2007 - Graz...home of Arnie Schwartznegger

Found out from the ticket man that I had to change tains. Good thing I found out then. No problems. Got into Graz and found the hostel. It was a really far walk away. Graz isn't really all that nice. Some dark clouds were rolling in as well. I dropped my stuff off anf quickly headed out to the old town. They have this weird shell shaped thing in the middle of the river thats a cafe and a theatre. Odd. Took some pictures and then it started to pour rain. Found a supermarket and went in and got myself some dinner. Back at the hostel after a...
