    Zuhause

    June 10 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    Der letzte Tag unseres Trips ist angebrochen. So gern wir uns aufmachen andere Länder zu entdecken, so gern kehren wir auch wieder ins vertraute Heim zurück. 500 km sind es noch und es läßt sich voll leicht fahren. Bei der Einfahrt in unser Land fühlen wir uns schon fast wie daheim. Noch eine Kaffeepause und bald darauf stehen wir vor unserem Garagentor.
    Hinter uns liegen ziemlich genau 10.000 gefahrene Kilometer durch elf Länder und über vierzehn Grenzen. Wir haben elf verschiedenen Währungen verwendet, landestypische Spezialitäten genossen und in achtundzwanzig verschiedenen Betten geschlafen. Wir haben öde Steppen, unendliche Weiten, wunderschöne Berglandschaften, armselige Dörfer und interessante Städte gesehen und manchmal haben wir auch über Hitze, Regen, Straßen und Bürokratie geflucht. Überrascht hat uns die Freundlichkeit der Einheimischen dort, die uns so selbstverständlich und uneigennützig weitergeholfen haben und die uns ganz einfach nur so eingeladen haben. Das werden wir auf keinen Fall vergessen.

    Dirndln

    September 29, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 11 °C

    The last day of our vacation has begun. For today is a visit to Dirndlkirtags on the program. It is a market day that is held once a year in the neighboring valley, each time in a different location. The theme is the rosehip, from which very special specialties are made, such as liquor, schnapps, pastries, jams, chutneys and much more. Moreover, the day is the day of the Dirndln, which means that the people here are almost all dressed in costume and a dirndl is a special, traditional, Austrian and versatile dress. Dirndl can also mean girls in dialect. We stroll among the countless visitors through the village. Everywhere stands the market stalls and the music plays. Young girls dance folklore, we drink cider and watch the fashion show. Finally we drive to a restaurant for lunch. Then it's back home. We have to pack our seven plums. Tomorrow we have to get out early and to the airport.Read more

    Mountains and Wuchteln

    September 28, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    The first thing we do today is going to Kilb for the Pitterle family's "Backhendlstation". After a hearty lunch, we drive along steep rocky slopes over the narrow panoramic road over the mountains to Mitterbach. We actually wanted to take the chairlift to the summit, because from there it's a magnificent view to Mariazell. Unfortunately, the lift is not in operation today. So we turn towards Annaberg and drive into the romantic Fadental to the Hubertus lake. There we make a Stop at the Wuchtelwirtin and eat with pleasure the Wuchteln.Read more

    Wachau and Wine

    September 27, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 15 °C

    At noon Karl and Erika come and we start in direction Wachau for the first time. We cross the Danube and drive up to Maria Taferl. On the marketplace of the small town there are all sorts of typical trinkets to buy at the market stalls. In the newly-covered church, we marvel at the many images of saints on the walls. From the church square, we enjoy the great view of the Danube and the Wachau and then treat ourselves to a coffee in the sunshine in an outdoor dining area. Afterwards we start our actual goal today: the wine taverns of Gerda Piller and her husband. It is already true tradition that we come here on our austrian holidays. Every time there are excellent Austrian specialties and good wine. This time a bus full of Bavarian mayors arrives with musical instruments. It is played and joked and laughed. Each of us was having a good time. Sometime at midnight, unfortunately, we have to go home.Read more

    Unfortunately, the weather today is not for trips around the area. That's why we decide to stay home and cook for ourselves. There are aTajine with couscous. This dish is a traditional food everywhere in Morocco. We like to cook and eat it because it tastes good and it is easy to prepare.

    Back Home

    September 21, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Before breakfast, we think about how it should continue now. We think of the South Styrian wine route and googling for wine taverns with accommodation, but there is nothing cheap and available here. After a fantastic breakfast we are still thinking about where to stay in Styria. At some point during the journey, the decision is made to drive home. We arrive home after seven in the evening.Read more
