Firstly, here's my blog page link: http://ashwinbahulkar.wordpress.com/my-travels-2/central-europe-austria-and-czech-republic/austria-and-prague/
It has quite a few pictures.

And I would like to thank all forum members here for helping me out, answering all my silly,small queries. Without you guys, this trip wouldn't have been the same.

My trip to Central Europe

I traveled across Austria, South East Germany and Czech Republic in mid September 2013. This was kind of a bonus trip for me, because I had already done an international trip for the year, had been to Turkey in May. I got a work opportunity in Graz, Austria, after which I travelled for about 10 days.

Austria had been my dream destination since quite sometime(when I helped my parents plan out their Europe itinerary a few years back), and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity. I was already done with an international trip for the year(Turkey), I had initially planned to just go to Halstatt and Salzburg after Graz and then come back. But then a few family members decided to join,and then we extended the trip to include Prague and Vienna and then they(family) couldn't make it. Nevertheless I decided to go for it alone, and I am happy I did the entire trip .

About me: I am a 24 year old male , solo traveler. I am into exploring new cultures, landscapes and food photographing them.

Places covered: I spent about 5 days in Graz, where I was working. From there I went to Salzburg, where I based myself to explore the Lake district Salzkammergut( Gosausee and Halstatt) and South East Germany( Munich and Berchtesgaden), all of these were easy day trips. Then I went to Prague,stayed for a couple of days, proceeding to Vienna where I spent another 2 days, 1 of which was spent in the UNESCO Heritage site Wachau Valley( Krems, Durstein,Melk).
