Bregenz, Austria

Continuing on my vacation--I unwittingly rode the train into Austria looking for a place to stay. With some nomadic teenage girls laughing at my ignorance, I stepped off the train. Wondering if I could get around, I was relieved to find out that everything was still written in German: I could still understand the language. Then I began to smile, because not only was the place beautiful, with lots of mountains, water, and the sun setting…but everyone was on skateboards and rollerblades! “Welcome Home!” I grinned to myself. Since I had picked up a pair of blades on sale (one of many, many little sweet blessings on my trip), I smiled, donned them, and glided, camera blazing, into the [another] sunset…
