On the Road is a weekday feature spotlighting reader photo submissions.
From the exotic to the familiar, whether you’re traveling or in your own backyard, we would love to see the world through your eyes.
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 a great weekend – and enjoy the pictures!
It’s Friday, and yet again, the wonderful otmar!
I’ve still got lots to work through and next week I’ll post some brilliant pics from Le Comte, Bill, and the rest from JR. It’s going to be a good week, just in time to help push through these deep winter times!
Where it was taken: Laa an der Thaya
Commenter screenname: otmar
Other notes or info about the picture:
After spending Christmas with both grandmas and hosting relatives until the 28th, I’m now on a short holiday with wife and both kids at the spa in Laa. The building in the picture is city hall, which was built during the Austria/Hungary empire days. Laa is straight up north to the Czech border from Vienna. This used to be the iron curtain, so for 55 years this town was almost cut off from the neighbours to the north. This was certainly not helpful for the economy, and so the villages here offer a glance back into the past.
These days the border is open, Austria and the Czech Republic are both members of the Schengen treaty, thus there is minimal friction passing over these days.
This shows: the signs in the spa are tri-lingual: German, English and Czech, and some of the staff here sport the typical Czech dialect of German.
Three letters folks – WOW!
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.
