    Stunning views, I'm not showing SWMBO though as she's looking for destination for 60th b/day break next year and the wallet may not be so understanding at that time.

    Lol.... Probably wise, mate, but there are plenty of more affordable hotels/chalets around the area to stay than where we did, and it's not that expensive to eat out

    Congratulations! Lovely area. It's been nearly 40 years since I was last there, and your lovely photos make me think it's about time for a return visit. Not sure how the boss will react to fore-going the usual week in Skeggie, though

    Cheers, guys. Yes, we also love the Dolomites, and have often crossed them when driving to Italy. The views and scenery are stunning

    being an Austrian myself, I have to confess that landscapes as on your above photo as well as on the photos from Marco’s wedding anniversary seem to originate from my most anxious, claustrophobic and oppressive nightmares ;-) My parents both come from the few flat regions of Austria, so I guess my preference for wide open, free landscapes is genetically conditioned.



    My father’s roots: Burgenland, in the eastern part of Austria, near the Austrian/Hungarian border. Part of the Pannonian Basin, called “Puszta” in Hungary and Austria.




    More Burgenland.




    My mothers’s roots: Lower Austria, in the northern part of Austria, close to the Czech border.


    During the last ten or fifteen years the climate change influenced the Austrian weather very badly. Extreme temperatures between –59 °F in winter and up to +104 °F in the summertime are difficult to bear for elderly men with lung diseases (COPD, pulmonary emphysema) like me. Spring and autumn do not seem to exist anymore. I’m looking for places with a constant climate between +59 °F and +77 °F, ideally with sea air, to spend my remaining years in retirement.

    Being a passionate cyclist since my earliest childhood (I don’t even have a driving license), the places in Europe where I feel most comfortable are North Germany (Lower Saxony) and the Netherlands. Both are quite flat and low, sometimes even below sea level.



    Baumkirchen near Innsbruck, Tyrol, where I lived since my resettlement from Vienna in summer 2004.


    I’m happy that you and Marco enjoy the Austrian mountains that much.

    Werner.

    yes and its not too costly to live there . mind you we have been looking at prices this year and they have risen , i guess because of brexit

    Marco, lovely looking hotel and scenery is breathtaking.

    Good times to cherish, someday you'll look back on these as the good old days!

    Congratulations on your anniversary.

    P.S. You don't get many chips with those dinners
