Baking bread in Rauris

Baking bread at Rauris, Austria

While writing this post, I am nibbling at a slice of bread I created myself! Lately, I visited a farm at the Kalchkendl Alm (an alp named Kalchkendl) in the Rauris Valley. There, I had the chance to bake bread for the first time. I took this lesson in a class guided by Roswitha Huber. The brand name of this class is Schule am Berg.


High rope course in Hinterglemm

High rope course in Hinterglemm, Austria

While I was walking through a valley in Hinterglemm there was a certain whirr in the sky. People crossed on a high rope course in 100+ meters high the valley. Though the people dashed down the rope on high-speed I tried to take a photo. Can you see the person near the warning element for planes? Can you imagine to do the same in this scenery?


Lake Zell in Pinzgau

Zell Lake in the region of Pinzgau, Austria

Right next to the railway station of Zell am See I had this great view of the Zeller See (Lake Zell) and the mountains nearby. During the cold period of the year it is frozen and used for winter sports like skating. In earlier times it even supplied breweries and so on with ice  for cooling the products.


Do not disturb sock

A sock as Do not disturb sign

Fun! On my trip to Zell am See I stayed at the Hotel Tauernstüberl which is using socks as ‘Do Not Disturb’ signs at its room doors. This is a kind of pun. In German language there is the phrase ‘You are a lazy sock’ which means someone is a bit lazy in general.
