Austria, Slovenia and as it turns out a bit of Italy, so that also gets crossed off my European list. At date of typing this, Austria is one place I do want to revisit, along with Poland.
Lienz is a beautiful city, with a vibrant café culture, ideal for relaxing having a drink and watching life just stroll by. Further down the road and over a mountain pass is Hermagor, with a few tree lined streets and lovely cafes with delectable cakes and drinks to wash them down with.
After my visit to Lienz, admiring all its buildings, both historic and modern, went to Villach for a rather splendid Chinese buffet at a restaurant called 'The Wok', it was a great establishment, clean and bright with friendly staff and excellent service.
Austria is clean, the homes of residents are picturesque and each one is different, a joy to behold. This in most respects transfers to businesses, hotels and commercial.
I've enjoyed my time in Austria, not got to grips fully with the geography, but getting there and learning it! With easy access to Italy and Slovenia as well as other neighboring countries, Austria should be on everyone's list of 'MUST VISIT' locations.
As I prepare for my departure from Austria and head for Slovenia, my attention turns to my hire car. A Renault Clio, a nice looking car, with all the mod cons you expect from a car of the current day, however one issue lets it down.... the fact is is too far down to get in to! Its far to close to the ground, and could do with being about 7 inches higher up to get in to!
