... passports stamped, but seeing as how so far this was the only place willing to do so, we shelled out the 2.50 Euros each to get that elusive stamp just to say we were there that day. Afterward we continued on to Innsbruck, where we were to spend our lunch break after a short walking tour with Marie to see the Golden Roof, built a very long time ago by Emperor Maximillian. Marie then ...
... main tourist fixture, but also the oldest wooden bridge in Europe) and just have one last general stroll through the town in the early evening. It was quite nice. Dad was scoping out the watches as he had promised himself he would get one for his birthday. There were plenty of choices for watches - being basically every second shop we passed but it was more targeted at the multimillionaires of this world. In the end he found one he quite liked within a price range that wasn't ...
... paddock fenced off with cows feeding, the noise of all their bells clanking and clinking was fantastic. The cable car was about a km long and by now the sun was out, just a glorious ride. The cable car stops and we are onto a gondola system to get to the top of the horn (mountain) Well this is an enormous gondola. Takes about 40 people and you can go up to the top deck out in the fresh air, as if. Most of you know my dislike for heights, so I parked myself in the corner and closed ...

The balcony view of the lake is fantastic! Small room; sink is behind screen in room. Small bathroom; tiny shower. This is an old building, and the air freshener drove Lois' allergies nuts! Glad we are here only 1 night. Breakfast has a great selection of tea, cereal, meat, cheese but not much else. Brienze is a beautful little town at the end of the lake, and we'd definitely come back here but would not stay at his hotel. From boat dock, it's about a half mile walk to hotel. (TIP: Walk up to sidewalk rather than along gravel lake path if you are pulling luggage)
