Austria 2016, Day 14,15 Tuesday, Wednesday, Heading Home

Another rest and relaxation day….when we travel to Europe we usually do a 14+ day…so we get that R and R day every third day. 

Got up about 7 a.m. and had a celebration that the Dodgers won their fourth straight Division championship.  Jeff and Alexis were at the game before that when the Dodgers won 14-1.  Lucky guys.

20160925_022611We worked around here, started doing some packing and then we took our walk to downtown Golling.  First stop, craft store with wood gifts.  The bakery, toy store, and then to one of our favorite café.  We had goulash soup with fresh bread finished of with cone of gelato.  Life is good.

Then the most important thing of the day a two hour nap.  We were going to make some pasta with fresh tomatoes, yellow peppers and sausage tonight but our Untour Coordinator, Vera called to take us out for dinner tonight instead of lunch tomorrow at Golling’s waterfall.  We’re flexible.  More on that later. 

Just got back from the grocery store…about 15 minute walk each way…for the really last visit of our stay.  We have walked 4 to 8 miles per day even on our R and R day.  We both agree that we have lost at least 5 pounds each.  I’ve had to chinch up my belt to the tightest notch.  Not complaining. 

cowsIt must be milking time.  The dairy next door just had their small herd of cows…20 or so…head into the barn.  The half grown calves, separated from the herd…are bellowing for their mothers as they come in from the pasture.  It’s a morning and night routine.  A very nice final full day in Austria.

Great flight home.  Did have a young man experience a Gran Mal seizure.  For awhile we thought we might have to land in Canada for medical care but he came out of it well.

Good to be home after a great trip.
