The Fortification of Copenhagen, Kastellet

Kastellet in Copenhagen is one of Northern Europe’s best preserved fortifications. It is a wonderful place for a stroll on a sunny Sunday afternoon.

The Glacier Pasterze

The Glacier Pasterze next to Grossglockner, Austria really is worth a visit.
We had enjoyable hours there years ago.

Take a look at these brilliant photos from Grossglockner High Alpine Road: Grossglockner

Trainspotting in Austria

Viewed from above, Pinzgauer Lokalbahn in Salzburg looks like a model railroad.
The train runs between Zell am See and Krimml
Explore Pinzgau: National Park Hohe Tauern

The journey is the goal, a waterfall path

“The journey is the goal”.
This is how the waterfall path in Krimml is presented, and the path is indeed a goal in itself.
Stunning views and enjoyable exercise.
Krimml Waterfalls has a drop of 380 meters and is located in the National Park Hohe Tauern, Austria, near the border to Italy.
We had a wonderful climb along the waterfalls years ago and ended in a beautiful mountain valley with flowers all over.

About counting the days

It was a birthday present to my friend. The hike in Austria. I was responsible for the logistics. The train ride was with a sleeper, a return trip Copenhagen – Munich.
To be honest, it was a bit tiring to find available hotels, checking time tables, get a solid map so we didn’t lost our way in the mountains etc.
At a point I decided for myself that I needed some relaxation before returning to a busy everyday life.
So I let go of the attention to time and timetables. Only for a couple of days or so. That’s all!
But on the train ride home towards Munich my friend suddenly asks me what date it is.
Would you like to check the tickets, I ask.
I’m aware! We lost the train in Munich, we are a day late.
As a whole the trip was a success, and I will write one more post from that summer.

I got the inspiration to this post from Steve Hindley:
ACROSS THE RIVER, TO ANOTHER WORLD

September The Last Of Summer

The birds laugh loud and long together
When Fashion’s followers speed away
At the first cool breath of autumn weather.
Why, this is the time, cry the birds, to stay!
When the deep calm sea and the deep sky over
Both look their passion through sun-kissed space,
As a blue-eyed maid and her blue-eyed lover
Might each gaze into the other’s face.

A Joyful Walk Today

Shady forests, silence, steep slopes and breathtaking views over the deep lake, Furesøen.

The Fragrance of a Norwegian Holiday

The fragrance of heather and bog is like an instant journey into the Norwegian mountains.
