Austria in Fall

When travelling Austria in October there is a certain mood setting over the country. The heat of summer is over and nature is beginning to prepare for a more harsh season of the year. Still the weather can be pretty nice with blue skies and a more milder, gentler sun. The leaves begin to fall and brown and yellow colours are laying over the landscape. Autumn is here and it is the perfect time for a walk in the hills.

Gloucester: The Curious Cathedral

The Cathedral of Gloucester was built in the 7th century and is well known, among other things, for being a filming location for the Harry Potter movies. It is also famous as being very mysterious and even strange. The reason is the architectural style of the church which is called “perpendicular style”, a more grotesque version of the medieval Gothic style. Also very peculiar and interesting are the glass windows, there is even one depiction of a medieval Golf player! All in all a fascinatingly grim but beautiful cathedral.
