Travel is an especially wonderful thing, even to just contemplate it. I came across two nice essays about Prague and Copenhagen which were so delightfully romantic. Classical European civilization attracts me greatly. The old stone buildings, wonderful Classical and Jazz music. It’s churches and spires, lakes and rivers, the mountains, the chocolate, cheese, wine and beer. Their football championship. the cafes and salons, the woods and forestry, the museums and universities, the art their concert halls and other such wonderful things. Of course this is an exercise in fantasy as i have never been to Europe and also all other parts of the world have wonderful things about them too but all these things when juxtaposed with their classical civilization attracts me greatly. i don’t know why. it is just so.
