'Summer in the Alps' Day 19 - Matrei to Dornbirn

Friday 20 July 2018

Sadly, our group of ten dispersed this sunny day, leaving Sue and me to spend the morning wandering around Matrei as we had all day to achieve the 200 mile journey to Dornbirn, and a welcome from our old friend, Markus.

The parish church of St Alban, the Gothic tower of which dates from the 14th century, dominates Matrei. The meticulously attended cemetery is also a place of interest.

We then spent some time in the Hohe Tauern National Park building, where there is a superb exhibition, and an art gallery.

We also admired the garden from which a number of the ingredients of this week's meals have clearly been sourced.

Our journey was smooth and uneventful. Once at Markus's shiny new flat, we admired the Voralberg view from his balcony with a glass of wine, after a fruitful visit to the local Indian restaurant.

Your Italian and Austrian trips seem to have sped by in the blink of an eye! What's next on the summer agenda?

They have sped by...
I suppose you could call today "Not the Kalkalpen Traverse".
It's too hot at home for us to return just yet...
