    Mondsee - Austria

    August 8, 2017 in Austria

    Drove to Český Krumlov via Mondsee. Mondsee is a beautiful lake-side town which, apart from being a very charming town and great Summer holiday spot, is where the church, St. Michael's, is situated. This is the church used for the wedding scene in the Sound of Music film. The town was vibrant and busy with markets leading to the church, while those not shopping atvthe markets were heading to the lake for a swim or sail. On to Český Krumlov...Read more

    Attersee am Attersee

    June 26, 2017 in Austria

    Brief post to show you some pictures of the beautiful Attersee where we stopped for lunch en route from Vienna to Salzburg.

    It was a recommendation which did not disappoint. A clear blue lake framed by mountains. I think the pictures speak for themselves.

    Wedding Church

    October 10 in Austria

    This is the Church in the movie tsom where the wedding took place. In real life they were married in Salzburg in a small monastery that would not allow them to make a movie there.

    Attersee

    October 10, 2017 in Austria

    We passed along Lake Attersee on the way home from Halstatt, so stopped off to let the driver have a bit of a look at the scenery. There are some serious constructions around to protect the roads from landslides!

    We were laughing about the "Achtung Kinder" sign. Craig says "Mein Gott im Himmel, what's wrong with these people? At least in Australia it is only the crocodiles that eat the Germans. Here in Austria, it is the children!". Cracked us all up.

    I took a photo of another funny sign which had all the things to see if you went diving in the particular part of Attersee we were at... which included what looked to be a car door, a tyre or wheel, and an oven. The best diving location!

    Sound of Music

    October 11, 2017 in Austria

    We managed to see a few The Sound of Music things in Austria. Actually turned out quite hard to get a photo of alps, green grass, fir trees and to be able to actually get onto the grass. Saw lots of settings, couldn't access them!

    My lovely husband did do a drive by of the church in which the scene of Maria and Captain von Trapp getting married was filmed in Mondsee, the village we were staying near.

    Kate and I also went to visit the farm animals one last time in the barn.

    The kids have declared this the best place we have stayed at all holidays. Ranking highly on the judging criteria were: good internet, many cats which were happy to make themselves at home in our apartment, trampoline + "the best games room ever" + swimming pool.

    AirBnB at Mondsee

    October 10, 2017 in Austria

    The kids decided it was time for a swim - just the ticket when it is cold outside hey? Took me a longgggg time to get in the water, but it was quite pleasant once you were in. The coverage is good for maintaining warmth, but a shame because it was an infinity pool so I imagine the view from the pool in summer when the cover is off is quite spectacular.

    Kate and I wandered over to the barn at 5pm to watch the cows being milked, visit the goats and pony and watch the calf drinking from the specially modified milking pail which had a teat attached. It was adorable.

    Felix and Garfield the cats have become a permanent fixture in our house it would seem. They are the most dog-like cats I have ever come across (although admittedly my cat experience is limited to Rubix for the last 2 years).

    Taming a dragon

    April 21, 2017 in Austria

    Today, we did one of Austria's highlight fixed-rope-climbs "the dragon wall". It was our first longer outdoor climb and a challenging one for beginners for sure. But after the practicing indoors, we felt ready for a more challenging one.

    The hike goes up the steep wall on the left of picture #2 all the way to the mountain summit. We were climbing for 3 hours and then hiked down on the other side of the mountain for another 2. And to be honest, for the first 20 minutes or so I was quite nervous. Climbing outside simply is another story than being indoors where everything is controlled, secured and known. But being on the fixed rope is super safe and so we got to learn and enjoy 3 amazing hours of adventure.

    I definitely learned to trust myself and the equipment and we've all caught the climbing fever now :)

    Same climb, different brother :)

    April 29, 2017 in Austria

    Mo and I had planned a climb into a canyon at lake Wolfgang, but after a full night of snow, the climb was covered in a foot of snow and we had to change our plans​. So we decided to do the dragon wall climb which I had done with my younger brother a week earlier.

    It was so fun, again. Mo is such a natural climber and rocked through the 3 hour climb in just over 2 hours! I could barely keep up ;) The whole trip including hiking in and out was nice, sunny and we just enjoyed a great time together. Thanks Mo, and let's do that again soon :)Read more

    Sovana

    September 28, 2017 in Austria

    28 of September. On this day we went to Sovana it was stuck to the side of the mountain. There was a rain forest at one end and a Vie Cave Etruscha. This was a narrow path that had hills on each side caves all around it and a small cold river flowing on the other side of the hill. As we went into one of the caves there was a sign on the sign it said watch out for boor and porcupines both witch can kill you. I saw a boor foot print and I picked up a porcupine the fell from a tree and said here is a porcupine. It was funny. Soon after our walk we had lunch and headed back to our castle on the hill.

    THE END!!!😃
