Everything started with the idea of staying a bit with my parents… so I decided to go with them in Austria to spend a week together. The day after of my arrival the weather changed in a crazy way but seriously crazy that… well I woke up last Sunday and everything was white… yes guys was snowing like there was no tomorrow.
That day I couldn’t do anything at all if not staying in the hotel as everything was blocked because the snow but as the temperature raised in the following days, I decided to go on the top of the mountain of Bad Gastein where there was still snow but mainly it was melted as the temperature was so high that was melting it.
There were 3 ways to go up:
- Going by a cableway;
- hiking and walking quite few time;
Being lazy and not having the bike I decided to go up with my mom using the cableway that toke us up to 2300 meters. We went there thinking it was supposed to be very cold but instead I was with t-shirt and the sun was so strong that I burned my arms and neck LOL.
Upstairs there were so many people walking around, walking, taking picture, speak German that is a language I cannot understand/speak… but it was nice anyway as I went then to drink a beer on the balcony facing the valley and then I could tan myself.
As attractions there was a flying bridge where for every step someone was doing the bridge was shaking… then there were several benches where to chill out and relax; there was a platform where you could admire all the mountains around you, there was a telescope with a display built in that was telling how tall where some of the mountains around you.
I hope you enjoyed my post and the photo and much more will come 🙂
