I’m a day late, but on June 24 2012, I left for a three week tour through eastern Europe. I traveled with a group called American Music Abroad, which is the musical form of the ‘People to People’ organization. I was in Austria, Germany, Czech Republic, and I spent a few hours in Slovakia. I got lost on a mountain in Austria, learned how to Viennese Waltz, rode a dinner cruise on the Elbe River through Prague, spent a morning in Dacha Concentration camp, and much more.
It has been four years, and it feels like a dream. Someday, I want to go back. I’m rather smitten with Salzburg, Dinklesbühl, and Old Town Dresden.
