Hello Graz

Hey guys!

I boarded my first flight yesterday at 4pm, with connecting flights between Toronto and Munich, and by God's grace I reached Graz at approximately 12:30pm Austrian time,which is 6:30am in Canada.  Now, I have not boarded a plane since I moved to Canada in 2001 so I was a little nervous on the first flight, but eventually got used to it... kind of. Over all the flight was comfortable and not too long, which was great.  Thank you all for your well wishes and prayers.

At the Graz Airport

Once I reached Graz, I took a taxi to the hotel which I will be staying at for the next 2 days. The hotel is called Amedia Hotel.  It is about 15 minute drive from the airport. 

I rested up a bit and decided to go get some McDonald's. Although the McDonald's here looks like a 5 star restaurant, I was disappointed with the food.  But then again, McDonald's in Austria must be different from the ones in Canada right? haha.  So far, the people of Graz seem like nice people.. I'm sure it'll get better once I improve my German.

Til next time, Cheers!


  1. I stayed in the same hotel when I was in Austria!!!! :)

  2. Good to know that you have already arrived, and that your Ottawa friends and fans can watch for updates on your blog. I hope you've recovered from jet-lag and that you will be fully settled-in soon!
