    Vienna to Riegersburg, Austria

    June 21, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Up at 830am not woken by power tools YAY! Got ready, had breakfast, finished packing and left the hotel just before 10am. 🏨There was no Ubers around so we caught a taxi to the station which was about 10Euros. 🚖🚕 We found the bus pretty easy, it was there waiting. 🚍🚌 However Q confused the bus driver saying we were going to Graz not Pinggau! The trip was 20Euros each but the bus was really nice. It was about a two hour drive and Philip met us at the bus stop with his two dogs Blacky & Sadie. 🐩🐕 It was about another 45 minute drive to his house with a quick stop at the supermarket. 🏡🏡 When we arrived at the house he showed us around and the jobs that needed to be done. A thunderstorm came through but once it cleared we got stuck into it and built a fence. Then relaxing time and dinner... Lasagne YUM! 😎Read more

    Riegersburg, Austria (Day Two)

    June 22, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C

    Started work about 9am, first job was cleaning up the sheds where the alpacas sleep 🤢😷☣️💩 poop everywhere! We shovel it all up, then soak it up with sawdust and restock the hay. Next job is clearing the wood pile, we worked on that until lunch at 1230pm. I had a nap as I was buggered 😴☀️🌡️We started on the raspberries at 4pm, weeding the garden. Afterwards we weighed all the alpacas. Some of the weights were out so we'll try again in a few days. We then gave the alpacas dinner. Then time for a shower, our dinner and relax time! 😊 It was a pretty hot night so I slept on the couch. 🌡️😴🌡️Read more

    Riegersburg, Austria (Day Four)

    June 24, 2017 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Up similar time... 😴😴😴 Cleaned out alpaca sheds and topped up their hay. Got stuck into the woodpile until lunch time 😫😧 another nap over lunch as buggered again. 😭😭😭 Then we started on fixing the troughs but the cracks are so bad we'll have to use cement so that's to do another day. Then we were going to weigh the alpacas but the scales wasn't working so there went that idea. By the time we packed all that up, we fed the alpacas and gave them their medicine and it was soon 630pm. Yay! Time for a beer 🍺Read more

    Lazy morning again, watched Mighty Ducks 2 😎😎 in the late afternoon we went to the chocolate factory! 🍫🍫🍫😋😋😍😍 The tour started with a movie and then around the factory we went. Through the beans, then liquid chocolate but sooo bitter 🤢🤢🤢 finally we started getting to the good stuff, the normal tasting chocolate fountains and lots of flavours. Then we tasted hard chocolate with different % and milk. Then to the hot chocolate room! You pick a flavour off the little flying cable cars and then drop it into your hot milk 😋😋 next was hard chocolate again but with nuts, fruit etc. By this stage I was definitely starting to hit a wall 🤢 last was the chocolate train OMG. By now it had to be really good for me to try... Pumpkin chocolate got me! Then to shop... As sick as I felt now... I knew I'd be able to eat some the next day 😂😂😂🍫Read more
