Good Bye Dresden, Hello Leipzig

Today is my last day in Dresden, Germany. The Society of American Travel Writers convention is moving to Leipzig, Germany. This is the first convention I’ve ever attended that starts in one city and ends in another. The way they have it set up in pretty amazing. There are a whole bunch of full day tour planned for members. I’m going on the Cars and motorbikes from Saxony tour. All the tours start off in Dresden and by the end of the tour, we’ll end up in Leipzig. Dinner tonight will be at Restaurant Auerbachs Keller. I’m really looking forward to it.

On Monday, I will be presenting a two hour long workshop for SATW members on how to make money online. I gave my keynote to them yesterday and from the feedback, it looked like I nailed it on the head. I have the keynote recorded by Teleprompt+ but I can’t figure out how to get it out of the iPad. I’ve sent an email to Bombing Brian for help.

Here are some photos I took while walking around Dresden. It’s a beautiful city. One I highly recommend you visit.

        Beautiful city.Looks very clean.

        1. Leipzig should be very nice too. I think John may find it even more interesting. A lot of publishing used to be done there.

            too bad it’s all rebuilt and not the original. The allies bombed the shit out of pretty much all german citiies. Dresden had a firestorm raging for days from allied fire bombs.

            But it good that they tried to keep the old architecture somewhat consistant.

      I like how it has old architecture mixed in with modern.

      Every trip is memorable for him.

      1. Boy but I think this one was really amazing with old construction and latest technology fast cars.

        What a combination.

        But only happens if you are globally recognized.

  8. John,

    I like how you are now visiting other countries in the world. I guess living the dot com lifestyle has not only given you the freedom to do what you want with your time, but also to travel anywhere you want and actually be able to make money from any point of the world.

    I also love the pics!

  9. NextOnline says:

    Would like to tour the city, really beautiful night!

    Miss Sixty is hotttttt

  11. What a very nice city. They were able to modernize it while still maintaining some cultural landmarks, such as the cathedrals.

    Great shots as well, John! What camera are you using? 🙂

    1. John Chow says:

      The photos were taken with a Canon SD980 IS.
