My first (and last) class trip where I carried a video camera with me (a Blaupunkt/Panasonic SVHS-C camera). Most of the recordings are lost; however, there is still some material left showing a castle and the exhibition inside of it.
One funny thing about Salzburg was, that the number of tourist in central Salzburg was really huge. A female representant of Greenpeace Austria was actually glad to finally find a person who was neither American nor Japanese and could speak German. Unfortunately, I had to disappoint her: She was looking for Austrians, of course. Looking out for possible new members in the middle of the central city is almost an impossible task…

- My class comrades were very camera resistant. They probably foreshadowed the invention of YouTube :)
- Soon after the Salzburg trip I bought a new camcorder (a MiniDV one) which I used for my trips to Cologne/Wuppertal and London. I also have video recordings of Amsterdam and Tokyo/Yokohama.
