      May 24 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 18 °C

      On m'avait pas menti, cette ville est grave belle ! Après être passé devant le fameux Mariahilf je me promène dans le centre ville, la maison de Mozart, le toit d'or, la cathédrale St Jacques, la rue Herzog - Friedrich, ..
      Petite pause au Strudel Kroll Cafe pour goûter la spécialité locale : l'apfelstrudel (je suis pas fan mais c'est bien d'être curieux)
      Visite du Hofgarten ou bizarrement j'arrive à indiquer la route de la gare a deux petites mamies EN ALLEMAND (même moi j'suis choqué)
      Et maintenant je rentre à l'auberge prendre mon meilleur bain dans la putain de baignoire d'angle monumentale de l'auberge ~

      Innsbruck day 2

      January 25 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 39 °F

      Woke up, had breakfast and a cappuccino before getting ready to check out of the hotel and go exploring. Walked the charming town filled with so much history and old buildings, it’s like being in a fairytale. Popped into a few shops before grabbing lunch at a cool, hipster vibe burrito/taco joint. Their focus is on all natural sustainability. For instance, the guacamole is made from peas because they require less water to grow than an avocado. The meal was great and so were the aperol spritz. Next we headed to the tram/gondola ride all the way to the top of Innsbruck mountain, it takes roughly 30 min with a few stops and cable car switches. The views and sunshine were amazing!!!! (Around 7000 feet above sea level) Quick stop at the MarktBar am Inn for an amazing aperol spritz and a yummy Portuguese dessert. Drove to Salzburg, checked into The Imlauer Hotel Pitter and had an amazing dinner on the 6th floor restaurant. Heading to bed early, we have a fun filled day tomorrow including The Sound of Music Tour!Read more

      Innsbruck

      September 3 in Austria ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

      Da wir heute unser Hotel wechseln, haben wir dass zum Anlass genommen um uns Innsbruck etwas genauer anzusehen.
      Wie zum Beispiel die Hofburg. Diese wurde von den Habsburgern errichtete und bewohnt. Mitglieder der kaiserlichen Familie haben bis zum Ende der Monarchie 👑1918 die Burg benutzt.
      Das Goldene Dachl ist ein Prunkerker am Neuen Hof in der Altstadt und gilt als Wahrzeichen der Stadt. Das Dach des Erkers wurde mit 2657 feuervergoldeten Kupferschindeln gedeckt, der damalige Käiser Maximilian I. lies diesen bauen, damit er einen schönen Ausblick auf seine Stadt hat. #Gönnung #waskostetdiewelt 😂😂😂😂

      Am Ufer der Inn hatten wir kurz das Gefühl in Amsterdam zu sein. 😅

      Das lass die uns nicht. Wir mussten sogar unsere Rucksäcke in der Hand halten, damit wir nicht ausversehen damit etwas beschädigen. 🙈 Als wären wir 1. Klässler die nicht wissen wie das mit dem Rucksack ist 😅

      Innsbruck

      September 1 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

      Von meinem Stellplatz auf 1.300 Metern mit herrlichem Blick in das Alpbacher Tal fahre ich heute durch das Inntal bis nach Innsbruck.
      Auch wenn die Gipfel in den Wolken stecken, ist das das Gebirge im Stadtbild allgegenwärtig. Es bietet eine tolle Kulisse für die wunderschöne mittelalterliche Altstadt, aber auch für den zeitgenössischen und sehr gelungenen Landhausplatz.
      Die fast reinweiße Hofburg hebt sich deutlich von der ansonsten farbenfrohen Bebauung ab und der zugehörige Hofgarten beeindruckt mich mit sehr alten, riesigen Bäumen verschiedenenster Arten.
      Später fahre ich noch ein ganzes Stück weiter nach Westen auf einen abgelegenen Stellplatz im Jamtal bei Galtür, der auf 1.700 Metern liegt und ebenfalls einen schönen Ausblick bietet.

      Day 5, part 2!🇨🇭🇱🇮🇦🇹

      July 25 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

      So after saying our goodbyes, we boarded the train and went to Liechtenstein, Vaduz. Super hot day so not the best for walking around, but we enjoyed the small town of Vaduz and walked along the bridge that connects Liechtenstein with Switzerland. In two countries at the same time!
      We had some time to spare so we sat in a coffee shop for a little while. Lampros wanted something to snack on and I remembered I had a chocolate in my rucksack..when I went to open it the chocolate had all completely melted all over my stuff!
      It was so funny. Thankfully everything could be wiped down and I didn’t get any clothes dirty, but my rucksack now smells like chocolate😂. For some reason Liechtenstein doesn’t show up on the rail app as an extra country, but we’ll be using the flag whatsoever.
      We bought a couple of snacks from COOP and then boarded our next train to Austria!
      Our final destination for tonight was Innsbruck, Austria, a small traditional town in the Austrian mountains. Very pretty, and very rainy! As we arrived we changed in boots and rain coats and tried to find somewhere to eat a schnitzel. We eventually found a shop that served, but it was closing down in under 20 minutes, so we eat quickly and then headed for our Hostel which was a bit of a walk out of town - but in the end totally worth it. Beautiful hostel and very nice staff.
      More tomorrow! Goodnight from Innsbruck!

      Amsterdam in Austria!

      September 21 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

      Omg. What a day. This has been one of my trip highlights. Everyone meet Lena and Hannah! They are twins that I met in my hostel in Amsterdam and I'm staying the night with them in Innsbruck tonight!!! Today was sooo fun and I am so happy this gathering has worked out!

      We started our morning at the 360 degree cafe where you were surrounded by gorgeous mountain peaks and stunning views. After walking around town, they made a traditional Austrian dish called Kaiserschmarren mit zwetschgen röster (I know it looks like a mouthful) and it was DELICIOUS! I will definitely be making it at home :) we used plums and cinnamon with a spin off of pancakes :)) yum. Then we went for a cycle!!! Sooo amazing just riding along the mountains and enjoying nature and just being outside. Soso great. (also fantastic that they completely outfitted me with their sisters bike, bike shorts, and shirt!!) We also thanked the farmers at dinner time for the couple of carrots and zucchinis we picked up along the ride 😂😝🫣 sooo yummy! We called off the day with some chilling and relaxing. What a day. Fabulous. Soso happy :) Lena and Hannah are two amazing friends that I hope they will come to Canada and I've already told them I'll be back for the winter season!!!

      IM IN LIVE WITH THIS TOWN!! Omg. It is such a small ski village with mountains 360 degrees around. There are pubs and cafes everywhere and Northface and Patagonia shops on every corner. The buildings are so colourful and the canal wrapping around the city is the perfect touch. I HAVE TO COME BACK IN THE WINTER!Read more

      Innsbruck, Austria

      September 21 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 59 °F

      Innsburg was a nice break. We did a lot of nothing here, which was fine with us. It's located in a broad valley between mountain ranges. Deanne scored a huge apartment in the center of the old city, facing the famous "Golden Roof." From our 3rd floor windows, we could look down on the hordes of tour groups and people watch. After all the hiking and trains and moving around, it felt great to just chill out. We had time to plan the next week or so of the trip. Of course we couldn't sit still for long. We took a bus to the south of town and then walked up to the Bergisel ski jump.

      Innsbruck has hosted 2 winter olympics and the ski jump platform offers tours. The views of the city and mountains were spectacular. From the top, if we turned around, we could see the downhill ski run where Franz Klammer won the Gold in the 1976 Olympics.

      We walked back to the old town from there. A bus took almost as long as walking. The old town is car free and very pleasant to stroll around. We decided to leave it for a traditional meal away from tourist hordes and weren't disappointed. Lunch was pork-laden, heavy, and delicious. Food and wine prices here are sooooo much cheaper than Scandinavia and Switzerland. Who knew that Austria could be seen as inexpensive? It helps that the dollar is strong now compared to the Euro. They're about equal. A fine beer or glass of wine is $3-$4 and a meal with tax, tip, (about 10% here) without drinks can be had for $13-$20.

      We made it to one museum, the Hofburg palace. It had a lot of period piece furniture and portraits from the Hapsburgs. It's large and was well-done. But based on what we saw, it looks like this was little visited by the Hapsburg royalty and I got the impression that Innsbruck was seen as a backwater to be visited on the way to or from somewhere else in the sprawling kingdom. Vienna and Budapest were were the action was at, I think.

      The views from most places in Innsbruck are out of this world. Imagine looking up to see snow-capped mountains in the background against a blue sky. We didn't get tired of it. We're staying above a nice cafe that makes fresh Apple Strudel every day. People are very friendly, even those that cater to tourists. I can't recommend Innsbruck enough. We're not doing a lot that the city has to offer. Instead, we're just walking around enjoying the sites. Today we walked along the Inn river toward the University and then strolled back a different way.

      Tomorrow, we take a 2 hour train to Salzburg, home of salt mines, a fancy archbishop, Mozart, the Sound of Music, and the St. Rupert's fair.

      Deanne was 16 going on 17 when she was an exchange student in Austria. And she played Mother Abbess in her high school production of the Sound of Music, so let's just say she's a little more excited to see certain sites than I am.

      We hope to spend more time at the fair than any of the other sites of interest. It's a beer-fest that's supposed to be like a mini-Octoberfest. Our United airlines pilot friend Louie, from New York, is meeting us with a friend for the festivities.

      On the (rail)road back to Graz

      April 24 in Austria ⋅ 🌧 11 °C

      Ankunft in Hamburg Altona. 20:11 Uhr soll Start in Richtung Innsbruck sein. Ich fahre zum Terminal, erhalte mein Zettelchen mit Endstation für das Motorrad und fahre zum Verladebereich. Dort angekommen schloss ich Bekanntschaft mit einem anderen Motorradfahrer der sich für 3 Wochen Richtung Kroatien, Italien, Montenegro auf den Weg begab. Gemeinsam wurde noch fix etwas leckeres Indisches zum Abendessen organisiert und sich bis zur Nachtruhe noch etwas unterhalten. So erfuhr ich, dass er bei der Marine ist, seinen Urlaub immer zum Reisen mit dem Motorrad nutzt und fast alle Länder in Europa so schon bereist hat.

      Die Nacht war dann leider von weniger Schlaf begleitet als erwünscht und gedacht, aber wenigstens kam die Bahn pünktlich in Innsbruck an und das Wetter überraschte mit Sonnenschein, zumindest bis auf die kleinen ungünstigen Regengüsse um den Bodensee herum. Kurz nachdem wir unsere Motorräder in Innsbruck abgeladen hatten verabschieden sich der nette Soldat und ich voneinander. Auf zur nächsten Tankstelle, auftanken, Autobahnvignette kaufen und dann geht es auf die restliche Etappe von 450km nach Graz, wo ich gegen 17:00 Uhr nach 2 weiteren Tankstops und einer kurzen Mittagspause endlich ankomme.
