Moped Shop Graz
Posted on November 3, 2006 by christinamolin
There are many things I really like about Austria. I love the fact that we are getting great support for Vincent (medical, developmental, psychological etc etc), I love the bread and chocolate, I love the city of Graz with its cozy little streets, I love that it is so close to many other countries and interesting places, and I think it is really cool that the post man comes on a moped (even though it is not cool when he pees behind the garage). BUT what I really hate is the smoking policy. Or the lack thereof. In Sweden there is a non-smoking policy which makes it illegal to smoke in any public place, restaurant, cafe, pub etc etc. It is great! Unfortunately they don’t have that law in Austria…
People also seem to be smoking more here than any other place I been or lived! Young, old, rich, poor, man, women, almost everyone smokes. There are no designated smoking areas in cafes, or restaurants, you can simply smoke wherever you’d like to – and people really do. Of course I have been trying to avoid smoky places since I got pregnant. And in the summer season it was fairly easy with all outdoor cafes and restaurants. And of course, the savior is Carro – my friend who has the only non-smoking coffee shop in the city. We go to her oasis at least two times a week (not to mention all the fab magazines and yummy bagels she has ). Anyways, today I was with a friend and her 6 months old daughter at one of the malls here. We sat down to feed them at the food court. After a while some people came, my guess around their 50s, two women and a man, and sat down at the table next to ours. As soon as they sat down they all got their cigarettes out and started smoking. One of the ladies would with each puff turn her face and blow the smoky air right down in my stroller where Vincent by now was laying trying to fall asleep. And mind, he was not screaming and being a pain in the but*, simply laying there doing his usual smalltalk. The lady proceeded to blow the smoke in his stroller, and after the 4th puff, I tapped her shoulder and asked her politely to please blow the air the other direction as my son was laying in the stroller. And I was really being polite, not bitchy at all, as I was not sure that she had seen the stroller; I mean would anyone on purpose blow smoke into a stroller with an infant??? The lady, which now has earned the reputation of true bitch (sorry folks for the expression) looked at me and told me that in Austria you are allowed to smoke in public places, and if I did not like it I should stay home with my baby!

Scooters/ Bars/ Clubs2007-03-12 17:44:41 by nycsteve
- Scooters are very easy to just rent on a daily basis. Be careful and you'll be fine. You will see the occasional "Scooter wound" typically noted by a white bandage but that's probably from people being reckless. I haven't been to Santorini since 2002 but want to say it's about $30 a day.
- If you rent a scooter this is what you should do- go to Kamari or Perrissa beach during the day. If you go to Kamari go cliff diving off the cliffs right there at the beach. If you go to Perrissa, the afternoon party starts around 2 or 3 and by 5/6 you'll have people dancing on the bars. It's a fun scene

I got very lucky and found a cheat/nice 2BR apartment for $950/mo that is less than a mile from where I'm going to work. This is in an area where typical 2BRs are $1500+/mo.
Well, I chose this place based on location, work is close, bars are close, groceries, etc, everything is within a mile or two. Therefore, I don't need a full size vehicle to get around.
So, I'm going to park my truck, save the money on gas and auto insurance, and get a scooter to get around town. (My girlfriend will have the full size 2000 Ford Windstar to get around in, so no worries there).

I got a free CB 350 or 4something... no seat but lots of brand new parts just given away with it. cables n stuff. I sold the shocks to a scooter guy (delivered 'em for hardly more than gas money, I'm a sucker for scooter chops, anyone doing their own hack jobs really) and the rest of the bike for $200
I gave the eldest duckling the clubman bars.
you just gotta be willing to jump in a truck and GO RIGHT NOW.
