What you really learn if you stay long enough

Austria (Österreich)

The bike lot at the rail station in Baden. These are very common. Efficient, clean and weight reducing transportation

The typical beach in Austria, no sand and plenty of rocks to walk on in the water. If you look way in the distance there is a woman with no top. About 10% of the woman I saw on the beaches had no tops. I have a better no top picture but this is a family page.

This is the lake we biked to in 90+ weather. In the distance there are female bathers without tops. During most of the stay Samantha had a crummy bike and I was able to keep up with her. However for this trip she was loaned a $700 bike and it was all I could do to keep up with her. The ride TO the lake was 31 kilometers (21 miles) and the speed we averaged was about 12 MPH.

This picture was taken on the way back from the lake, while moving. I was exhausted by this time my speed was about 8 MPH, Samantha was about 3/4 mile ahead of me. This is an army post, there is an armed sentry just behind the car. I took the picture in motion. Shortly after this Samantha suggested we take the train back. I think she was tired so being the sport I am, I agreed.

Ever see a toilet like this? Literally pay as you go. In one of these I got stuck inside and had to ram the door to escape. It cost about 50 cents to go, but when you have to go, you have to go. If you ask for a bathroom they will laugh at you because toilets and bathrooms are separate. They will think you have to take a bath. Charmin is not known here, sandpaper seems the rule.
