    Wow, it’s not often we hear Austria mentioned in the news. So sad. I had the opportunity to spend a week in Austria, driving through the country and spending time with people my mother knew. Nothing like driving through the Alps, along hair pin turns, on the interstate, driving a 5-speed. Such a beautiful country and wonderful people.
