Last day: back to Erding

Today is already our last riding day. We had a great time with the best riding weather you could pray for and a lot of sightseeing.

We will ride from Kaprun back to Erding where we started. On our way we will see the highest waterfalls of europe, we will make a stop at the Achensee where we enjoy our prepared picknick , the we stop by the Syvlenstein damm which was build almost 70 years ago and then we will enjoy an easy ride through the bavarian country side back to Erding.

The Krimmler waterfalls
Durlaßboden Stausee
Sergio, Paulo, Maria, Fernando and Ana enjoy the sun and the view at the Durlaßboden damm.
What a magificiant view over the Zillertal valley
Group picture at the Zillertal valley view point.
Lunch time at Achensee, wow what a view.
Better late than never: the original, genuine, one-of-a-kind Edelweiss Picnic.
Sylvenstein damm
James and Daisy enjoy the view at the sylvenstein damm.

A day of 'rest' in Kaprun...

Today is a rest day for those who want. No need to leave the spa hotel if you don't feel so.

But as we go to the Grossglockner alpine road nobody wants to stay at the hotel.

We offer a long and a short ride to make everybody happy...and it worked!

spectacular panorama from the Edelweißspitze, 2500 m above sea level
Pasterze, Austria's largest glacier. Or what's left of it.
Here's how the glacier changed over the last 150 years
The throttel junkies also known as Andrew, Cal, James and Daisy having a really great time with Tom on the long route.
After a nice morning ride it's time for a coffee stop and a delicious "Apfelstrudel".
Looking at the size of the Apfelstrudel it's probably a coffee and lunch stop...

Day 3: Gmunden (A) - Kaprun (A)

Que lindo passeio pela manhã com clima de queda perfeito.
A famosa aldeia Hallstatt oferece-nos uma vista espectacular do skyline plattform. Mas primeiro precisamos chegar lá. Este é o caminho para o topo, mas, felizmente, podemos usar um funicular.
Parece que Leonard e Tom aproveitam o passeio com o funicular e não tem certeza se Cal e Andrew fazem isso ... `=)
The sky walk and the "World Heritage View"
Right after this picture was taken Cal started looking for new sunglasses....
What a spectacular location for the official group picture!
This tower was built in 1284 by Emperor Rudolf to guard his precious salt mine
While the Brazilians were wandering the salt mine the Americans (and the Australian!) took to the roads. Spectacular roads! And this was our lunch place. Just awesome!

Day 2: Salzburg (A) - Gmunden (A)

boot beer time!!!

Day 1: Erding (D) - Salzburg (A)

A beautiful morning in Erding, the rain and most of the clouds have disappeared over night. 9 Brazilians and 5 Americans leave the parkinig garage and head out to discover Bavaria and Austria on a one-week tour...

View of the beautiful medieval town of Wasserburg
A boat takes us to an island named Herreninsel, which means Men's Island. Ladies are welcome, too. One of Bavaria's top tourist attractions awaits us there.
King Ludwig's castle Herrenchiemsee is a copy of Versailles. It remained unfinished, though.
Fall has also arrived in salzburg, just wonderful isn'it...?
The Getreidegasse, or Corn Alley, in Salzburg. Mozart was born here in 1756. We spend the night in this amazing city.
The "Stiftskulinarium St. Peter" first opened it's doors to guests in the year 803 AD. 1200 years of cooking experience should guarantee a great meal
We thought about ordering this wine to celebrate the occasion. But then, for some reason, nobody could locate their credit cards...

Hey Daisy & James!

Great to see you were having fun in the snowy Alps after the warm Spanish mountains
I hope, this time someone gave a bell to you, James

My warmest regards to you two

My dear collegue Thomas,
I am happy to see that you are enjoying a typical Italian pizza in the middle of the Austrian Alps
See you soon

Yes, I admit, it was pizza. But it had Leberkas and sweet mustard on it, so it counts as an Austrian specialty I suppose. And on top of it the Beisl across the street was full, while the pizzeria was half empty. I wonder why...

I only can see Mozzarellakäs and no Leberkäs as a topping. Most important that you enjoyed it. And nice to see that these traditional Bavarians get a little bit more globalised
See you soon - can`t wait.
LG Ursula

Anscheinend handelt es sich hierbei um das typische Tiroler Fladenbrot das der Italienischen Pizza zum verwechseln ähnlich sieht.

Und bei der Pizza in Eichstätt handelt es sich um eine Württembergische "innete", haha.
Machts gut

Liebe Ursula,
bevor du jetzt in Eichstätt ein Spätzle-Restaurant als Ersatz für die Pizzeria suchst: Eichstätt ist Bayern, sogar Oberbayern, nicht Württemberg. Also nix Pizza und nix Spätzle, sorry. Aber du wirst schon noch was finden.
PS: freu mich schon auf die nächste BOE...
