We stayed the night in Bad Gestein Austria, it is a major ski
destination in Austria. The town is virtually a ghost town this time of the year. We
walked around last night to checkout some of the town, and it really was like
walking in a town that had an H-Bomb dropped on it. No one was around
and there were very little signs of anything being open. This would be a
perfect place to film such a movie! In the center of the town is this amazing
waterfall, it is all lit up at night. Most of downtown is perched on
the edge of a gorge that the waterfall runs the length of.
When we first got to town our plan was to stay at the Euro Youth
Hostel, but it is closed for renovation…LOL…So we had to hike down the hill
for a few kilometers to the Information Office. Wouldn’t you know it we had
to hump back up that same hill and then some to find the place we would be
staying in! The cold Colin is getting over has not settled in with me.
So after getting to our place I was completely out of it. Hopefully in the
next few days I will be able to kick this thing.
Since there is nothing going on here we are going to head to Slovenia
and check out the capital city Ljubljana. The hostel we plan to stay in was
a prison at one time but now is a very unique hostel according to Rick Steves.
Good part about traveling like this is that we only have a general outline
for the trip so when things like this come up we can go with the flow
and travel where the wind takes us.
