  • Day7

    Am liebsten wäre ich heute Morgen wieder ins Kajak gestiegen, aber stattdessen saß ich im Bus nach Villach. Dort habe ich Dirk verabschiedet und reise nun alleine weiter.
    In Villach habe ich die Wartezeit an der Drau verbracht und dabei noch nasse Wäsche zum Trocknen hingelegt. So ist das halt als Backpacker 🎒👍
    Die Fahrt verlief gut und am Hostel war ich auch ganz schnell. Das Hostel ist so, wie man es für den günstigen Preis erwarten kann. Ich habe auf meinem Zimmer zwei nette Mädels aus Nicaragua, mit denen ich schon einkaufen war und im Aufenthaltsraum gechillt habe.

    Ich habe noch Screenshots der Übungsvideos auf der Soça gemacht. Bewegte Bilder als zwar schöner, aber hier muss es so gehen.

  • Day32

    12.5 km/173m ascent/1,267m descent
    Day one was everything I hoped for, plus more........more rocky tracks, more icy river crossings, more slippery ice slopes, more cow poo covered, icy slippery rocky slopes .... the challenges just kept coming but we did it and it was incredible.

  • Day41

    Huhnersberg to Gmund

    June 11 in Austria

    14km/255m ascent/563m descent/3.5 hours
    An easy day of walking but still very hot in the full sun. Gmünd is a pretty Artists’ town but things were still fairly slow and sleepy because it’s only the beginning of their summer holiday season. Once again we are the only guests in this grand old hotel and it is the most luxurious accommodation we’ve had so far.

    Seeboden to Alexanderhutte

    June 13 in Austria

    22km/8 hours/1670m ascent/466m descent
    We walked up into the clouds today with wonderful views of the lake below and the mountains all around. When we arrived at a mountain hut at midday the owner suggested that we might need to take a shortcut because of a forecast storm. The mountain Gods held off just enough for us to continue on the 2100m ridge line. It was very exposed, cold and rainy but a great adventure. Arriving at our final destination, Alexanderhutte was a wonderful and welcome sight and we retreated out of the rain into a warm cosy room to hot soup and, of course, schnapps. We then spent the evening dining with Bruce and Isabel watching (through the big picture windows) the clouds passing below us and revealing beautiful views - as if we were in an aeroplane.Read more

    Mallnitz to Obervellach

    June 8 in Austria

    17.7 km/230m ascent/730m descent/6.5 hours
    Today was a spectacular day as promised, with a walk out to a mountain lake (Stappitzer See) and then continuing on through 2 river gorges. This path was described as ‘audacious’ which we now understand means ‘hanging off a cliff face over raging torrents and waterfalls’!

  • Day42

    Gmund to Seeboden

    June 12 in Austria

    14.8 km/ 4.5 hours/ 310m descent/460m ascent
    We really made the most of our last relatively easy and short stage.
    It was hot and sunny for our few hours of walking but unfortunately another storm came through just as we arrived in Seeboden which put a stop to our swimming plans (temp of lake water is around 24 degrees in Summer). The weather cleared in the evening and we enjoyed dinner (beautiful fish from the lake) at a lovely lakeside restaurant, watching the sun go down over the water.Read more

  • Day39

    12.9km/908m ascent/637 descent/5.5 hours
    Today’s walking was listed as ‘easy’ but we all felt the humidity and felt like we could not get out of 1st gear. I was apologising for ‘faffing about’ and then I looked up and noticed the street sign - we were actually in Pfaffenberg! Rudi and I were picked up and taken back to the Herkuleshof Inn for dinner where we were treated to a truly memorable meal of local Camembert, escargot and local venison. The owner (who lived in Sydney for a few years and had an Australian partner) then took us for ‘an adventure at the bar’ trying all sorts of local drinks and all on the house. They were also hosting a wedding and on dark, they lit the ‘fire garden’ which was a spectacular sight. We were finally dropped back to our accommodation at midnight feeling quite merry.Read more

  • Day40

    Preisdorf to Huhnersberg

    June 10 in Austria

    22km/ 709m ascent/ 653m descent/ 6 1/2 hours
    We conquered another schlutt (canyon) today, minus the audacious walkway. The mountains changed as we left the Tauern Hohe Alpine landscape to the Nockberge Mountains. We are perched on top of a mountain again tonight with impressive views.

  • Day45

    Dobriach to Petodnighutte

    June 15 in Austria

    17 km/7 hours/ 1166m ascent/124m descent
    We tried to think of today as a ‘rest day’ ambling along 17km of relatively easy walking, after yesterday’s assault.
    We are sleeping again tonight in a delightful mountain hut which is 90 years old (including the furniture).
