Greetings from Austria! Yesterday went by really quickly once all the travel nonsense got finished. After the plane and the nearly 2 hour drive to the hotel, we had a walk around the tiny town while we waited for our room. It was small but very cute:
The town is so small that after about 20 minutes there was nowhere new to walk so we decided to try our first Austrian beer to kill the last half hour before we could check in. Spoiler alert…it took me way more than half an hour to finish that thing.
we entertained ourselves taking goofy photos and sending them to friends back home who were just arriving at work.
When we finally finished and got our room, we took a little nap for an hour and then got ready for dinner. Food is going to be one of my favorite things on this trip because I speak zero German and have no idea what any menus say, I just have to receive the food and try it. Our trip includes a 4-6 course dinner each night so we don’t have to worry about anything except going downstairs and sitting down and just enjoying. I forgot to take a picture of my mozzarella and tomato salad last night but here was the rest of the meal:
Today I’m going for a short run around town and then we are going to hike up the mountain directly behind our hotel. We are surrounded on all sides by mountains so we are going to just keep tackling different ones each day.
Have you climbed a mountain before? Which one?
Ever had to eat food and have no idea what it was? Did you like it?
