Austria trip report

 

Austria



Austria is a central European country that often gets mistaken for Australia.


 

Mayrhofen

Skiing is big in Austria and Mayrhofen is famous for its powdery slopes. There's even a slope called Harakiri meaning "suicide" in Japanese, because it has a 78° incline (ie almost vertical). Having never skied before, I thought I could just watch and learn. The lady I crashed into on my first attempt did not share that opinion.

 

Grüner See

Grüner See is a lake in Styria, near in a village named Tragöß. The "Green Lake", wit its emerald-green water, was voted by Austrians as the most beautiful place in Austria.


 

Bruck an der Mur

Bruck an der Mur is a small town of some 13,000 people, located in the state of Styria. There's a restaurant there called Baderhaus, where the owner dresses and acts like the Austrian emperor from 1800. They also sell a drink called Spezi which is Fanta and Coca mixed together.

 

Vienna
