Graz, Austria : the instagram version

Monday, June 4, 2012

Much like Freiburg, the city of Graz is known for being a university town packed with students, and thus the site of many festivals, parties, and other youth-targeted events. When I visited my friends there in 2010, all I met were students, students and more students. It reminded me a lot of Salzburg in that way. It even looks a lot like Salzburg to me, too.

I’ve always thought of Graz as a tiny little village of a town, but it’s actually larger than Salzburg (and the second-largest city in Austria!). It has that small-town feel, though, which I really like.


Kaitlyn and I took the train over from Germany, and I’m glad we did, for it was in Graz where I consumed the best ice cream of my life (and I’ve eaten a lot of ice cream in my life).  Just look at it!  She chose chocolate; I went with my usual flavor of choice – strawberry, with extra strawberries.

Our trip there was pretty low-key and uneventful (save the glorious afternoon with the ice cream goblets),  but it was quickly followed by a very eventful trip to Salzburg… so get ready for that.  Details/photos forthcoming.

P.S.

2 questions:

1) Where are those sunglasses from?
2) What's your instagram??

I got the sunglasses from either UO or H&M, but lost them shortly after Graz, I think!

And I have my instagram on private. No fun!
