1069 - Shelter From The Storm

A big, fat rain cloud squats over Italy, Slovenia and Austria. All of Austria? No, today there was a spot in Austria’s utter east, Burgenland, where the sun still shone, and that’s where we sought shelter from the storm. It’s a bit crazy and completely irresponsible from an ecological point of view, but it sure felt good to sit in the car and drive 2.5 hours for a little sunshine.

We went to Güssing in the south of Burgenland. It’s a small town best known for its mineral water, featuring a castle atop of a hill and a Franciscan monastery. This image has been taken in the Franciscan church.

The Song of the Day is “Shelter From The Storm”, originally from the 1974 Bob Dylan classic “Blood on the Tracks”, unequivocally acclaimed as one of his best albums, and a live version is also available on the 1976 release “Hard Rain”.

YouTube has the album version and a 1976 live video. Well, I’m a fan, I love both, but when you press me hard, I’ll take the live version.

That's crazy, if it were only to chase the sun. But I understand. 🙂
