Our last night in Austria was spent wild-camping in Fussbach, just outside Bregenz. We'd driven through rain from Ravensburg and, on arriving on the banks of Bodensee (Lake Constance), it became evident that Bregenz and it's lakeside environs were popular tourist haunts so we couldn't find a sleepy spot anywhere near The Lake! We stocked-up … Continue reading A Whistle Stop Tour Of Liechtenstein!
Blitzing Through Bavaria – Bad Waldsee To Ravensburg.
Our drive from Kempten to Bad Waldsee on Saturday morning took us through a very different landscape from what we'd become accustomed to in Austria. With The Alps behind us, we were now in the "high plains" of Germany's largest State with sprawling fields of grazing and grain crops. The houses were less traditional wooden … Continue reading Blitzing Through Bavaria – Bad Waldsee To Ravensburg.
Brakes Boiled – Budget Foiled!
Yes, folk, Sebo's brakes were still the cause of sleeplessness nights for one member of Team Sebo so, on Thursday morning, we headed for the local Peugeot/Citroen workshop (like you do, when you're desperately trying to avoid a Mercedes Benz bill) in Schwaz. A rather disinterested young service manager listened to our plight then merely … Continue reading Brakes Boiled – Budget Foiled!
Two For The Price Of One (A History Lesson And Awesome Views) At The Eagles Nest!
Today was a pretty awesome day for Team Sebo. We paid our money and ventured up to The Eagles Nest - or, as the Germans would call it "Das Kehlsteinhaus"(fabulously interesting history of it if you click on the link there!) - which actually means "The House On The Kehlstein"- note, no mention of Eagles! … Continue reading Two For The Price Of One (A History Lesson And Awesome Views) At The Eagles Nest!
The Hills Are Alive….. But Not With The Sound Of The Famous Salzburg Glockenspiel!
Our journey to Salzburg on Saturday morning, took us along the course of The Salzach River , through deep gorges and, once again, murky driving conditions (so didn't manage to get any decent pics of said gorges!), until we reached our sleepy spot for the next couple of nights - Camping Schloss Aigen, just 5km … Continue reading The Hills Are Alive….. But Not With The Sound Of The Famous Salzburg Glockenspiel!
A Mixed Bag Of Weather Systems Dampens Team Sebo’s Salzburgerland Spirits
Our two days and nights parked-up at Gastof Friedburg in Neukirchen were spent charging all things electrical, catching-up on washing and walking (in between the downpours and thunderstorms which have made an appearance every late afternoon and evening for the past umpteen days!). We had a fab view from our sleepy spot, overlooking the Wildkogel … Continue reading A Mixed Bag Of Weather Systems Dampens Team Sebo’s Salzburgerland Spirits
Weekend Meanders in Mayrhofen, An Awesome View Of The Hintertux Glacier And Krimml Waterfalls And A Two Night Stay In The Wildkogel.
Our excitement at arriving in Mayrhofen was somewhat tempered by the disappointment of discovering that our hoped-for (cheapish) sleepy spot at the Parascending School was a) already full and b) reserved for clients of said establishment at this time of year! Fair enough! Not wanting to pay megabucks for a pitch at the town's only … Continue reading Weekend Meanders in Mayrhofen, An Awesome View Of The Hintertux Glacier And Krimml Waterfalls And A Two Night Stay In The Wildkogel.
From The Zugspitze To The Zillertal – With A Few Other Places In Between.
Our ascent of Mount Wank on Tuesday was pretty uneventful - it was quite arduous zig-zagging our way up the 1000m elevation but we managed to do it in a much shorter time than the signposts predicted so we treated ourselves to a drink at The Wankhaus restaurant at the top in recognition of our … Continue reading From The Zugspitze To The Zillertal – With A Few Other Places In Between.
Popping Into Bavaria On A Quest For Readily Available LPG!
As we reluctantly pulled away from our rather luxurious pitch at Camp Alpin in Seefeld on Saturday morning, we headed for the German Border, just south of Mittenwald in Bavaria, to top-up our LPG tanks. Not having a proper gauge on the tanks, we thought we might be running a little low and, not wanting … Continue reading Popping Into Bavaria On A Quest For Readily Available LPG!
Mountain Huts And Aching Limbs In Seefeld In Tirol.
Since we'd left our Igls sleepy spot bright and early on Tuesday morning and driven straight to Seefeld in Tirol (all of 45km if we include the slight detour to an LPG station just outside Innsbruck which we then discovered we couldn't actually access unless we bought a vignette and used the motorway! Grrrrr. It'll wait!), … Continue reading Mountain Huts And Aching Limbs In Seefeld In Tirol.
