Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse, Austria

Grossglockner Hochalpenstrasse
We took a drive on the Grossglockner High Alpine road one day while we were in Austria this Summer. It was spectacular! I also liked that the road was actually wide enough for two cars all the way up and down the other side!

Kitzbühel, Austria

Above Kitzbühel
We visited Kitzbühel while on our trip to Austria this Fall. It is a lovely town! We took the cable car up to a viewpoint in the mountains. The clouds made it quite dramatic!

Basilica Rankweil XI

The two wooden bowls sitting on the shelf are to be placed in the water of the fountain and hit like drums. The sound they made was fantastic!

Basilica Rankweil, Rankweil, Austria

Basilica Rankweil
In September, we set out again for Austria. We spent the night along the way near the town of Rankweil, just over the border from Liechtenstein. We were driving by and saw this basilica on a hill, so decided to investigate. It is a beautiful church with a great view and grounds.

Albula Pass, Switzerland

Albula Pass
On the final day of our vacation this Summer, our GPS took us up a scary windy road (often single track) up to the Albula Pass. Once at the top, we were rewarded with the most spectacular views! I found an entry for this road on a website called Most Dangerous Roads. Fortunately, there was very little traffic on this road.

Muottas Muragl XI

Muottas Muragl
To drink glacial water or not to drink glacial water. That is the question.
