    Today after breakfast we headed off to a place called Mondsee (that means lake in German.) Half way to our Air BNB we stopped up a hill that had ice caves on it. It was cold, rainy and... cold. After we went past the ticket table, we had to walk up the equivalent of a 40 level sky scraper.

    After a hour of walking and 3 minutes of sky car we got to the top. Fog was rising as we entered the cave. It felt like a cold shower. After one or two minutes of walking to the entrance we got to our English tour guide. As we went in the tour guide introduced himself, his name was "Johahnes" but when he said it in his German accent, it sounded like "your highness". After some time in the freezing cold cave we came to a stop where he told us to imagine some of the ice sculptures being animals, the only ice animals were a bear and a elephant.

    As we walked by the animals we went in a long hall that was 25m tall and 88m long and at the end of the hall was the ashes of the person that found the cave. He always wanted to be berried at the end of the hall in the biggest ice cave in the world. So he was. (The man died in world war 1 as a soldier).

    After the ice caves we walked down. When we got to our farm Air BNB, there were cows, cats, dogs and horses. Inside our house we settled in and met a cute cat I named Garfield. We took the cat down to the games room and played with the cat, played pool, ping pong and fusball. In the middle of playing ping pong another cat came in. I named him Felix because he looked like the cat from the ad. This cat jumped on us, hugged us and jumped on the tables while we were playing, chasing the ping pong balls off the table. The cats did not mind. Soon after, Garfield got mad that we were patting Felix more him. Garfield tried to attack Felix. Garfield ran away and came back the next day to get more love ❤️
