Sometimes life doesn’t go the way you planned. After a wonderful two days in Graz, a flat tire and a public holiday got in the way of continuing the trip. While this meant we would not be able to spend as much time in our next destination, there was more time to explore Graz. One of the many beauties of Graz, Austria is Eggenberg Palace, and this was on the agenda for the extra day. The was built in the 1600’s. The palace is very beautiful inside, but the outside impressed me as well. The interesting patters the courtyard walls made, from the arches to the placement of the lamps, struck my eye.
