We recently got back from a walking holiday in the Upper Inn valley area of Austria.
In addition to walking more kilometres in any two week period ever I managed to read three and a half books.
The walking was great … amazing scenery … and only a minor amount of foot pain. Mostly good weather. Nice people. Excellent food.
The Austrian Tyrol is a place of mountains, valleys and villages. Many shades of green.
It is also a place of crucifixes … almost on every street corner.
We stayed in a village named Ladis near Fiss and Serfaus.
Over the two weeks I managed to take over 1200 photos. Here’s a small selection:

The walk down t0 lake Reschen, Italy:
In Serfaus there is a small subway. This picture was taken inside one of the carriages:
Having searched Wikepedia … I now know that NOTRUF means “Emergency Call”.
At the time, it amused me as a kind of philosophical statement … you have to sound it phonetically and pronounce the F as TH.
I know. It’s sad. But it amused me enough to prompt me to take the photograph.
The books that I read … well one of them at least … did give me some food for thought. More of that in a future post, perhaps.
