Austria Pictures October 1, 2008
I love looking through my pictures of the places I have been. Looking at old trip photos is like taking a trip through memory lane. I love it. Here is a church in Tulfus, Austria that was right behind our hotel. The fog is beautiful but it is covering up the Austrian Alps. Tulfus is much like Oberammergau with flowers in every windowsill, firewood stacked everywhere, and country charm. Our hotel, Gasthof Neuwirt, was so beautiful. It was complete with murals and flowers gracing the windows on the outside and Bavarian hospitality on the inside. There was a picturesque church next to the hotel complete with a bell tower. It was so romantic. There were two dairy farms situated on either side of the hotel. We got to tour one of these two dairy operations. It was so interesting. Tulfus is about 15mins from Innsbruck.
Here is another picture from Austria. This is Salzburg, Austria. The amazing part….do you see it? No tourists in my picture… We went in October and it was a good time to go if you don’t want to fight with a whole lot of tourist traffic. In the top right of the picture is the castle of Salzburg, Hohensalzburg Fortress. My mom and I didn’t tour it. I think we missed out to shop. How sad is that? We both ended up getting scarves. Now I wish I would have toured it with the group.
