    Before the press conference officially started, I took a walk through the picturesque streets of Vienna, winding my way to the Hofburg Palace—of course, I had to see the crown jewels.

    I could not stop fawning over Iris’s fun and colorful bangles! One of my favorite lines from her talk: "Just because you are old, doesn't mean you should roll up in a ball."
