... but not all so we are slowly learning German - errr or at least the important words like Bier and Rot Weine (Beer and Red Wine).
We took a tour of the city and learned that the city was built upon embroidery back in 612 AD by an Irish monk, Gallus (I know I'm getting into history mom - can you believe it) and the town was known to be an epicenter for knowledge, so we toured a very old Monk library with all of the original manuscripts ...

The scenery so far in Austria has been nice, but not spectacular (here I go, comparing it to Switzerland again!) But my next town more than makes up for it. Auberbraz is halfway up up grassy hillside, and above it is not one, but two magnificent waterfalls, tumbling over the rocky precipice.
Time to do a little side trip. It woudn't be right to just snap a picture and move on... I'm going to climb up to the base of one of those waterfall.
... Sure enough, the valley just divided in two, and I'm supposed to take the right valley. Glad I caught that! I could've hiked the whole day up the wrong valley. Back to the correct valley, I find a little village that hasn't quite woken up ...
Day 281 6 hrs, 6 kms Day Totals: 16 hrs, 31 kms I must admit I'm kind of hoping there will be another hostel here in Bludenz. Not really looking forward to going back to camping.

Looks like I'm getting back on track, and I can see the sizeable town of Bludunz up ahead. But first, snuggled up next to it on the hillside is the town of Nuziders. Here I pause for a strum session in a mini park with an old fashioned well--noticing what looks like a Turkish family leaving their very Austrian looking home across the street.
No "immigrant ghettos" here in Nuziders...
