Let’s See Some ID

So, I’ve been meeting up with a conversation partner and I told her about the controversial law in Arizona that says that if a police officer suspects you are an illegal immigrant, he can ask to see your papers.  She thought this was  not unusual at all.  Around here, if a police officer asks for […]

Week Opportunity

This morning I discovered something odd. I remotely connected to my computer back home and noticed that the clock there was 6 hours behind the clock here, not the normal 7 hours. I did some looking, and it turns out that Austria does daylight savings time one week before the US. So, for this week, […]


Waaay back when we first arrived, we noticed a church at the top of a mountain next to Linz. I’m sure one of us has mentioned this, but I can’t seem to find a post about it. Maybe it was in a video… Anyway, it’s been on the list of places to visit ever since. […]

Oh, here’s what you’re looking for: *waits* Alright! As you can […]
