Like fireflies blinking with the excitement of nightfall just a breath away, Jimmy and I, along with two friends, took to the streets of Linz, Austria for a stroll. Seeped in history and her unique blend of old and new, the magic of the moment was both colorful and ephemeral, our
delight in simply savoring the sights and sounds of Austria’s third largest city memorable.
The warmth of Linz’s old world charm defied the cool temperatures that had slipped in along with nightfall. As much as I wanted more, I knew too, the mystery of it all was part of her charm.
From our ship I watched the last of the light fade and darkness turn the blue Danube jet black. As our ship prepared to launch into the night and head for yet another European port, the city of Linz was gracious in bidding us farewell.
