We took the local bus from Mayrhofen toHintertux. Hintertux is a local ski mountain where you can ski 365 days of the year. We were not skiing but walking. The lift to the top is in three stages but we hoped off after the first stage and walked down into the town. Now I like walking down! We started off in full cloud but walked down into hot sunshine ☀️
The walks are extremely well signposted so route finding is easy. We crossed bridges, admired the spring flowers and dodged cows. The cows all wear typical cow bells which you can hear from way off ( the purpose of the bells I suppose)
Apparently the better the milker the cow is the bigger the bell. Now I think that this is extremely mean. Not only does the poor girl have to carry a great big udder but a great big bell as well!
Hubs and I are having a cheeky week in Mayrhofen Austria. We have been multiple times but are still thrilled with the beautiful mountains, valleys and waterfalls. The mountain tops are easily accessible due to the chair lifts
When you reach the end of the lifts the restaurants are fabulous putting our efforts on Snowdon to shame. All the many paths are well labelled with numbers making walking much easier. Your not SUPPOSED to get lost👣
We generally buy a six day mountain pass which enables lift use free buses and train. Not bad value.
Great time out as I hardly ever go away ha ha😎
Today the weather has been awesome. One of those British hot steamy days when you are glad to paddle (or swim) in the sea. Each time we come to our “place by the sea” we explore a little more of the Welsh coastal path. Today we dabbled and paddled around Borth-y-gest a pretty village. We discovered tea rooms( nothing new there) an easy stretch of coastal path and hidden coves and beaches. Idillic!
Maybe a little more of the coastal path tomorrow. The Llyn Peninsula Coastal Path is 110 miles (180kilometers) long so at this rate it may take us some time. But watch this space.
