This week at the Current we visited a fascinating country in the heart of Europe, climbed some of the world’s most recognizable mountains, and much more! As always, catch up on what you missed with our Week in Review.

Austria

Austria was our Country of the Week. We explored its interesting history full of politicking, warfare, glorious empires, and more. Those days might be past, but the unique culture and stellar geography are sure to be remembered. See more HERE.

In our Travel Guide we covered some of the best places to stay in the country. From the largest city and capital of Vienna to the alpine paradise of Tyrol to fabulous wine country – there’s enough here to keep you busy for a while! Get our guide HERE.

Revisit our Currency Spotlight to learn more about the euro. With the Greece situation constantly evolving, it’s more important than ever to understand the ins and outs of the pan-European currency. Get it HERE.

Lastly, our very own Lisa Lavallee and the Tribal Vision Dance group celebrated Canada Day in style by performing at Ambassador Mark Bailey’s Gala in Vienna, Austria! Get pics and more from the event HERE.

10 Most Iconic Mountains

From the Alps to the Himalayas, there are some mountains that make you step back and just say ‘wow’. Sometimes it’s because of sheer size, sometimes it’s the potential destructive force, while others are memorable for reasons unique to the person climbing them. See what we picked as the 10 most iconic mountains in the world HERE.

Headlines

Every week we round up the biggest business stories from around the world in Headlines. This week the NYSE goes dark, the IMF releases new estimates, and much more HERE.

Looking Ahead

Next week we’re going to stay across the pond to visit a major British country. Beyond that, look for more of the great stories you’ve come to expect!
