So, up I went, on the truly idyllic little path through the forest. It was really warm and I sweated and panted, even though it wasn't extremely steep at all. Read: I don't normally do sports a lot. My cousin had to study, hence this solo trip. Besides, I love being in forests all alone. You see so much more, really.
Well, I reached the top, via a "stair" built on the Rocks. I tell you, the view was stunning. After eating and drinking in peace... a seldom moment in this holiday, because my full palate was always envied by the poor dieters and they hated me during dinner, I tried to take a photograph of myself with the landscape.
After a little chatting, we all walked down and seperated, because I decided to walk down another path to a place called "Lechnergraben" that I had discovered on my way up. All the nice people and their tourguide warned me of getting lost, the steepness and wild animals. Well, having grown up in the mountains and forests, I was more than confident.
After a hundred metres the path ended in a heap of fallen-over trees and bushes.
So I thought rationally, and walked all the way back to the peak and down the path again... and guess what? At the very last piece before the path dissappeared, my phone lay comfortably on a bed of leaves. No wonder I didn't hear it fall.
Calming down, I walked back to Neuberg and then we took a walk along the railway-tracks and the Murz. Well, at the hotel they had a good laugh and called me crazy, for roaming all alone and thought I had learned my lesson. Ahem, no, not really. Well, I learned I'll put my phone into a safer place next time.
