A partly cloudy day in Graz. Our friends gave us a call and came up with the idea of revisiting Eggenberg Palace. Not at bad at all because a second look actually refreshed our memory. Eggenberg Palace is placed in such spectacular surroundings you would take a walk every day in the park around the palace. Said & done! So while the girls engaged in all sorts of chit-chat in their walk to the castle, the guys handled the photo shoot.
Our host at the palace was nobody else but the Mr. Mighty Peacock, who by the way was quite friendly and of course really proud of his shimmering feathers. Really interesting about the peacock feathers is that when light shines on feathers, we see lots of glimmering coloured spots, phenomenon called interference.

Trying to get to know him better 🙂
And flap-flap…there you go ..he flew away!
And we did it! Such peacock situations require face-to-face conversations.
Further on, we had a look at the art exhibition of the castle, where visitors can buy tickets and souvenirs. From books and postcards to peacock bags and purses.
As we visited this room with paintings, stained glasses and statues from the Middle Ages for the first time, we took the chance to admire it at length. Must admit the paintings were really impressive!
Through laughs and photo shoots, we all had a relaxing and peaceful afternoon!
