... Austrian girl behind taps me on the shoulder and says, "You have no toilets on English buses?". There is a toilet, right behind me. Literally two rows back. I laugh in relief (which almost makes me **** myself anyway). I run to the toilet. Best feeling ever. As I'm washing my hands, the bus slows and comes to a stop. Our first rest stop. How is that for timing? Hahahaha. Ha. My life is a ...
... the next bus arrives. Nevertheless, as things quieted down it was the perfect time and place for us to grab lunch and rest up a bit.
Hallstatt for us too would only be a waypoint on a longer journey halfway across Austria to Vienna that same night. What I will leave you with however is the beauty of the place, or at least what I could catch of it in my photos. Enjoy the virtual vacation and I will see you next in ...

He has had a bit of a chest infection, so thought that a sauna might help get it moving. I lay down and read for the afternoon and enjoyed a few hours of rest before our beer-filled, action packed next few days.
