3 Cities, 2 Countries in 1 day

This post needs to be divided into two parts so consider today's post as part 1. Today folks marks my three month travel anniversary. It would end up being a day I will never forget for as long as I live. Profound words hey but you'll understand in tomorrow's post. To add to today's unprecedentedly difficult day, it would also the longest day I've ever had. I got up at 6am, was on the road for 7am and arrived at my ultimate destination ...

My three month travel anniversary!

Dear readers, Following on from last week's devastating news, thank you so much to the 10+ people who reached out to me publicly and privately. Nearly a week later I continue to function as normal on the whole and it's only those sudden, spontaneous thoughts which continue to have an affect. I was walking down the street the other day feeling good, headphones and shades on (default guise these days) with the sunshine beaming on my face ...

Grube from Vienna, Austria

'Greetings' indeed all, though excuse the poor English spelling of the German word. Getting straight to the point - whilst there's plenty to see here in Vienna, there isn't much to do. This means I'm inclined to only create one single post here but don't be    fooled, I've still put a lot of effort into this and so you can expect more images than normal so please take your time working through it... Vienna is ...

Would Salzburg feel like another Vienna...?

Or would I have an entirely different outlook on this city? Let's find out... My migration west to Salzburg started flawlessly with a fantastic train journey and for once it wasn't due to the scenery (although that wasn't bad either to be fair). Instead I had chosen a privately owned train over the government one and was staggered at the difference in quality for what really should be a comparable experience. Here is ...

I'm in Feldkirch for the night but...

Where the **** is Feldkirch!? Well, it's actually in Austria and seriously close to Lichtenstein but probably like you, I too had never heard of Feldkirch until very, very recently. So this morning I departed the Burger King-managed hostel I had stayed at in Bertesgaden for the last few nights. In fact, last night I was treated to an Alpine storm. It was both thunderously loud and magically illuminating. Check ...

A weekend in the Bavarian Alps...

Welcome everyone to the mighty Deutschland! So did you guess the historical face from the main blog post image? In all honesty, if you'd have asked me three months ago if I was planning on visiting     Germany, I would have answered fairly emphatically, 'no' - purely because I did not expect to have come this far west from my first port of call, ...

What else is there to do in and around Bertesgaden, Bavaria?

Bertesgaden, is the main transport hub so a lot of tourists enter here. Tourists mainly from German speaking countries and of course, the plentiful and adventurous far east Asian's. Is there any part of the World they don't visit!? I must say that this area is probably the least English spoken area I've been to in a while. Still, this wouldn't deter me from the wanting to explore the few other popular attractions I'd read up on before ...
