    Baad und Aufstieg zum Gamsfuß

    March 21 in Austria ⋅ ☀️ -3 °C

    Nach längerer Suche hatten wir am Vorabend doch noch einen "adäquaten" Übernachtungsplatz vor dem Wertstoffhof gefunden. Bei frostigen -8° 😬 ging es dann am nächsten Morgen erst mal zum nächst gelegenen Bäcker. Am Parkplatz in Baad angekommen, trafen wir uns mit Thomas. Kurz nach 8 Uhr waren wir bereits auf der "Strecke" - erst im Schatten und dann in der warmen Sonne, mit herrlicher Kulisse.Read more

    mighty shall fall

    August 29, 2016 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    And so we powered across the border to Austria and on to Bregenz....
    I had a fall trying to jump a kerb, and Jan may have fallen from a stand still at lights which prompted the nearby ambulance to check she was ok...

    We realised earlier in the day that I did not have offline maps of Austria on my phone which meant that we had no easy way to find the accomodation. We ended up using the coordinates and it was like ultimate caching...
    We found the others at the accomodation...all is good with Sherils bike...
    We did 58km today

    Illy, Sheril and I went and had a swim in Lake Constance (Bodensee) which was lovely cause I am a little bit sore in the legs and shoulders (my bum is doing good though)

    Austria! (Pfunds)

    October 17, 2016 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C

    We got supplies and some local cheese and beer from the supermarket in the village (passing scores of Alpine Coughs on the way!).

    Leaving Lichtenstein we passed the border controls again but no staff were present on the Austrian side and we sailed through.

    We plan to do the south west corner of Austria before heading to Croatia for 5 weeks and returning to do the rest of Austria in December.

    Will had planned this part of our journey and took us on a mountain pass called Silvretta Hochalpenstraße (High Alpine Road) - and high it was! There was a toll of €21.50 and we were just in time because it closes every year at the end of October due to the weather and safety.

    There were 34 hairpin bends and we climbed nearly a kilometer to 2032m above sea level and Silvrettasee, the top lake. It was amazing on the climb to see the road behind us snaking down the mountain and the road ahead reflected in the wing mirror as it bent double!

    There were two large lakes on the pass and both were dammed to create hydro electric power. The colour of the water was very different from lakes at lower altitudes, it was a glacier blue. Walking along the dam wall with the snow capped Alps towering over the lake we felt like we were looking at a painting!

    Vicky was a bit overwhelmed by all we'd been doing and so we drove on a bit further to a beautifully situated stopover (with wifi!) and decided to stay a few nights to try and process all the wonderful experiences we've been having.

    The next day Will had downloaded the MAPS.ME map of Austria and done his research. He'd found a track leading 4.5km up the mountainside to a viewpoint. Unfortunately, the track was old and couldn't be seen on the ascent so we ended up walking up the road. An old blue painted wooden bench whose seat was rotted away in the middle signalled the site of the viewpoint that had been left to ruin. However view however, had not been left to ruin. The tree lined river Inn meandered through the valley floor, lush grass fields either side and pine clad mountains rising up to frame it all. We could even see the van! As we were perched on either end of the bench, musing on how much the Toblerone we were eating looked like the mountains it was modelled on, a rainbow formed, stretching itself from the mountain top down to the river! We thought it couldn't get any better when we spotted a faint second rainbow outside the first. So much for having a day without too much excitement!

    There was evidence of the track on the way back down so we thought we'd give it a try, despite not having seen where it came out on the way up. We felt very small walking amongst the tall trees and thinking about the size of the mountains around us. After clambering over and under fallen trunks, we came to a gorge that had opened up through landslides when the hillside was in flood. A large cable emerged from the ground that was probably the reason the path existed. There was a small path leading down the hill to our side but it was very steep and extremely overgrown so after about 20 metres we doubled back the way we'd come to take the road back to the campsite.

    Camping auf dem Bauernhof

    April 16 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Für günstige 25€ übernachten wir heute 5 min vom Bodensee entfernt bei Bregenz. Der Platz ist sehr weitläufig, mit vielen in die Jahre gekommenen Dauerstellplätzen. Es fühlt sich an wie eine Zeitreise 20 Jahre zurück. Schön ruhig und Tiere kann man auch streicheln.

  • Day2

    Bärguntalpe

    March 21 in Austria ⋅ 🌫 6 °C

    Durch die kalte Nacht war der Schnee noch nicht aufgeweicht und die Abfahrt war zumindest im oberen Teil ein Genuß. Natürlich legten wir an der Bärguntalpe eine Rast ein. Bei Radler und Almdudler saßen wir gemütlich in der Sonne🍺.

  • Day1

    Es geht los!

    July 7, 2018 in Austria ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Nach einem entspannten Flug von Sofia nach Frankfurt, einem entspannten Abend bei Freunden mit grillen und Fußball gucken, kam die Fahrzeugkolone mit aufgeladen Mopeds morgens um 6 in Darmstadt an. Nach 2 Std schlafe ging erstmal nach Bürs auf den Campingplatz, wo Autos und Anhänger (bis auf das Servicemobil) verbleiben.
    Mit grillen und anschließendem Fußball schauen wurde der Urlaub eingeläutet.
