The Final Episode.
With the wagon in the sick bay, Sunday’s plan of hiking in the Kamptal with visiting friends needed tweaking, as we were now without wheels. A second pair of friends joining us had wheels, but not enough seats for the four of us, so Tony and I bought train tickets and met the crew in Langenlois; hence the €59,60.
Another schlecht Sunday. I reiterate that we are not spending our remaining time in Austria checking places off a list; the day just lent itself to a new exhibit at a favorite castle (I have several favorites), with lunch at a favorite Weinschank afterward.
The House of Liechtenstein is my favorite. Wanting importance but not being royal, they did the next best thing: they bought their way into favor of the Holy Roman Empire.
Not quite either, but on occasion that’s how it falls out.
It would be wrong to be indoors on a day as lovely as this.
The calm before the IB exam storm.
