Nine Inch Nails
The Wombats (+Katy Perry Fans..)
Katy Perry (thanking her fans, post gropping)
I was lucky enough to see all of the bands above, plus a lot more. The only band I was really hoping to see in Germany was the Whitest Boy Alive, but despite not seeing them I came away having seen 20-30+ bands. I’d like to think I got my money’s worth, even if i wont be going to Bumbershoot, MFNW or my cousin’s neighbors grad party..
It was a lot of fun. Surprising good food. Great Friends. Great Music. But the whole weekend I just wanted to get to the airport. I’ll put up some German perspective photos from Katharina.

it is late and i’m melting, i’m home but i’ve been here
..for almost two weeks now and i haven’t really touched this. I had thought that my return would mean, simply, the end of my blog foray. However, there are still a lot of pictures from the trip which i have not uploaded, jokes that i haven’t butchered and people i haven’t thanked. no promises, by any means, that it will get done soon, if at all, but know i’ve at least contemplated it.
And with that:
first appearance of Calvin
Calvin and HOBBES
so, my last update whilst in Germany, naturally so it is about Austria.
I’ll make sure to do a few sentimental thing-a-ma-bobs when I get back to the states, but just know that this trip has been better than I could have imagined.
Tübingen (approx. 4 months) – Stuttgart (approx. 10 minutes) – Paris (approx. 1 hour) – London (approx. 5 days) – Mur’kah (undecided)

(almost) plate sized Wiener Schnitzel and Potato Salad
One of the best meals of my entire European Adventure ('Bier Brats' and a dumpling)
Never took a picture of my kaiserscharrn, but this is what it looked like. Try and guess how it tasted.

I had the option of eating horse meat in Austria. I know that I 'killed christmas' by eating reindeer in Finland, but I hope to never dine on Horse

ant tube that went around the room.. ants, everywhere
strange exhibit for an aquarium
I was asked over 2 months ago by my friend Lari if I would be interested in going to see Liverpool play, in Vienna. I am pretty sure I blurtted, “yeah!” before she could even finish asking. She later told me when where how etc. and after when where and how arrived we went to Vienna last weekend.
We went to museums, saw the sights, ate great food, watched Brüno in Austria (in English!) and went to the friendly between Liverpool and SK Wien.
Austria, not Switzerland

I used to be able to get things like this from the dentist after a good clean.. But I always chose an airplane or bouncey ball..
