I have never been walking in the Austrian Alps before so I was not ready for quite how stunningly beautiful it is. This is the Lunersee, glowing like a turquoise far below us on our first day.
Also we were carrying these:
Offa's Dyke Path walk last year when you lift your rucksack and it suddenly seems lighter and you start walking and think you could go on for ever. Sadly it never came and I carried on grunting and puffing my way up the high hills. it is just the most extraordinary thing to be in such a landscape, slow or not. To be honest, things did get easier as we went but I never achieved tripping around like one of these
Wulfenia haus, run by the familie Bachman, just the perfect example of a small family run hotel. They did our washing and gave us marvellous meals and comfortable beds, all with easy and genuine hospitality.
Now I need a holiday, perhaps a kitchen, and someone to help in the overgrown and overflowing garden.
It was good to go and it is good to be home.
