I am back from Austria, which was a great time. I was, of course, there for work but there were a few fun outings, including what has become a recurring theme in my life in the last year or so:
That’s right, another gondola ride. We also got to see Innsbruck‘s old town, which was quite lovely. In Innsbruck I even managed to snag a mini-USB cable that allowed me to charge my cell phones, thus restoring communications fully about halfway through my trip. I enjoyed the trip overall, but I’m definitely burned out on work travel right now. I could have enjoyed this trip so much more–both personally and professionally. It feels really disappointing to me when I no longer see everything around me and don’t enjoy the adventures as much as I could. Regardless, although it was a long trip home (12 hours total! Drive 3.5 hours from Austria to Munich, sit in airport, fly to London, take a train requiring a connection, and finally a taxi back “home”) I’m glad I went but even more I’m glad to be back.
