Blogwalk/talk or bust...

7am
i went running along the main river this morning about a quarter after 7. it was very difficult to get out of bed as we traveled about 12 hours the day before. as i began my run, i was startled how pretty this part of town, nestled along the river bank, is. coming from the usa where we have boxy or modern architecture, i get so inspired and excited by old, beautiful buildings. i continued about 5k down the river, past the vendors setting up the saturday morning street fair, and over two bridges, the ignatz-bubisbrüke and the untermain-brüke. therese was up and ready when i returned to the hotel. we are now passing würzberg (10:37) on a3 on our way to vienna. we have about 8 more hours to go today, but are open to sight-seeing opportunity.
