On the Road and In Your Backyard

Good Morning All,

This weekday feature is for Juicers who are are on the road, traveling, or just want to share a little bit of their world via stories and pictures. So many of us rise each morning, eager for something beautiful, inspiring, amazing, subtle, of note, and our community delivers – a view into their world, whether they’re far away or close to home – pictures with a story, with context, with meaning, sometimes just beauty. By concentrating travel updates and tips here, it’s easier for all of us to keep up or find them later.

So please, speak up and share some of your adventures and travel news here, and submit your pictures using our speedy, secure form. You can submit up to 7 pictures at a time, with an overall description and one for each picture.

You can, of course, send an email with pictures if the form gives you trouble, or if you are trying to submit something special, like a zipped archive or a movie. If your pictures are already hosted online, then please email the links with your descriptions.

For each picture, it’s best to provide your commenter screenname, description, where it was taken, and date. It’s tough to keep everyone’s email address and screenname straight, so don’t assume that I remember it “from last time”. More and more, the first photo before the fold will be from a commenter, so making it easy to locate the screenname when I’ve found a compelling photo is crucial.

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!


Some pics from otmar that I missed somehow! So happy to run these on a Friday. Enjoy the matches today, everyone.

Today, pictures from valued commenter otmar.

Some random pics:

This is the Minoritenkirche right in the middle of the government centre in Vienna’s first district.

To the left is the building of the chancellery, on the right side the ministry of foreign affairs and behind me is the ministry of the interior.

There are tracks for mini train in the Prater park.

The Prater is also home to a baseball team.

… but the attention and thus the fans and thus the stands are not quite at US levels. ;)


Thank you so much otmar, do send us more when you can.


Travel safely everybody, and do share some stories in the comments, even if you’re joining the conversation late. Many folks confide that they go back and read old threads, one reason these are available on the Quick Links menu.


One again, to submit pictures: Use the Form or Send an Email

    @satby: Details on the mini train is on Wikipedia.

    Let’s see if I can take pictures of the coal fired steam engines. The train tracks pass the hockey field where my kids play, thus I see them quite often.

    @otmar: The name Liliputbahn for the train is charming.
