Europe » Austria » Upper Austria » Hallstatt May 23rd 2010

Today we took a day trip to Hallstatt in the lake country. This was to be a major stop on our tour and we were planning to spend several restful days there; however mother nature intervened, the cold rainy weather the past week, made the thought of camping in the moutains unsavory. It was only a few days ago that we planned to go today to Hallstatt, which turned out to be the perfect day! We caught the bus, a little more cramped than the train, but that's O.K.. We saw some nice little towns on the way up and saw a wonderful moutain lake at Oberion, where we had to switch form the bus to the train. Winding it's way through the moutains the train dropped us off at an abandoned station across form Hallstatt, ... read more
