On field trips

The good thing about field trips with university classes is the fact that you usually see stuff you otherwise simply wouldn’t. Today we went to Perchtoldsdorf, a place which is only about twenty minutes outside of Vienna, but which I of course have never been to. You see, sometimes I actually think about the fact that there are places outside of Vienna, and I then wonder what these places may look like and if they could warrant a twenty or thirty minute ride in public transportation. Usually these thoughts end up in total oblivion, and only trips organized by someone else and with something of a compulsory feel to it make it onto my travel schedule. So, there we are. Since I like to shoot pictures, I left the scene of academic mischief for a few minutes in order to be able to present a nice gallery of assorted Perchtoldsdorfian architecture and wonders:
