To Liechtenstein!

My sister had to work early, so I could also leave early to make a trip somewhere. I didn’t know where I would go, but I like it that way. I took the map and figured out that I know the east-side of Austria if you take Innsbruck as central point. Because I go for winter sport there every year. So I thought it would be nice to go west this time. Jippiyahooo, jippijahee!! ;- )

More than 10 years ago I visited the very small country ‘Liechtenstein’ with my parents, but I didn’t know too much of it, so I decided to visit it again, now alone because Elise had to work again.

I took the highway but decided to go off, when I could choose between a tunnel or a pass. A pass is a road through the lowest point between two mountains. I took the pass, because you had to pay €8,50 for the tunnel, and I thought it would be nicer the take to route between the mountains. And it was beautiful but cold! I drove on to the bundesland of ‘Voralberg’. By Feldkirch I crossed over the border. I was in Liechtenstein again! Quite different than I remembered, but it was more than 10 years ago, so that was quite logical. I drove to the capital ‘Vaduz’ and I noticed that all the children were wearing reverberating jackets so they were noticed in the traffic. On clear daylight! Well, I think it’s a good way to protect your children. I guess the Liechtensteiners are careful for the few children they have. By every crosswalk there were adults standing to hold the cars driving by. I drove to the old castle of Vaduz what I wanted to visit. But as turned out, it was a private residence… very nice house ;-). I drove on to a village called ‘Triesenberg’. I came there with the up-road, not the one in the valley. That’s something I recommend. Beautiful! A very small road going right through the forest. Well and after that I basically took the same way back (this time through all the tunnels) because of the time. Again early to bed, so I could get up early the next day for my biggest passion…
