Austrian Alps Pt. I

Travelling trough Austria consists in large parts of wandering trough valleys and lakes framed by endless mountains. And occasionally also of climbing one. That’s exactly what we did two weeks ago when we went up Mt. Schoberstein (something over 1,000 Meters). Not the tallest one by far but one with a marvelous view on the lakes of the Salzkammergut (in particular Lake Attersee and Lake Mondsee). Afterwards I continued by journey to another famous lake, the Traunsee, where I had the opportunity to take part in a boat ride across the lake passing by the equally famous Mt. Traunstein.

The pictures shot these days I want to present you in two posts. No particular order. Hope to sparkle some enthusiasm for the Alps! 🙂

Road Trip trough Southern Styria

On a rainy day like today when water droplets are smashing against the window I like to sort pictures and take a look back. I was very fortunate to come around a lot this summer due to my work in travel management. My first vacations though I enjoyed a week ago in my home country. Southern Styria is a beautiful piece of land in the far south of Austria close to the Slovene border. It is well known for agriculture and wine production especially. The smooth green hills are perfectly fitted for vinyards, the wines tend to be mild and sweet. Due to the beautiful landscape and the great cuisine Southern Styria became a major tourist destination In the last couple of years. Today you see the growing wealth in a region which was one of the poorest in Austria a few decades ago. I very much recommend a visit.
