I have just spent a few days in the Stubai region of Austria. My friend and I had signed up for two weeks of hiking in the Alps, but sadly, we had to cut our trip short and return to the US.
Here are a few images from our time there.
This is the Maria Waldrast abbey, which we were told, is the highest in the Tirol region at 1,640 meters.
These were the views as we hiked up the mountain. Nothing like the Alps. So imposing.
Everywhere we climbed, we heard cow bells and saw the cows they were attached to. These two seemed so chill.
This is Neustift, the village where we stayed. It was small and pretty, with a fabulous bakery.
Here’s one of the alpine huts where we stopped for lunch. One of their specialties is buttermilk with wild blueberries floating in it. I found it surprisingly delicious and refreshing.
And that, my friends, is my vacation in a nutshell. Back to work in a couple of days.
