We departed Rome on time at 7.50am and had a pleasant rail trip to Venice Mestre station where we changed to a coach for the trip to Villach. Train got up to 250kph in places and there were lots of tunnels. The Coach was very comfortable and the scenery very interesting as we left the plain behind and headed into the mountains. It took about 3 hours to reach Villach and we did not have to wait long to get picked up by Betttina, our home exchange contact. She drove us ...
... that they were doing work on the railway and we would have to hop off in two stops and then take a bus and then get back on the train at a later stop. This caused significant discombobulation for Ryan but I was really just going with it. We disembarked the first train follow other passengers like a heard of sheep to an air conditioned bus.

Dam just a short run from base and we passed some amazing waterfalls and arrived with not another person around - not a bad thing to be alone when you are stood on a glass platform at 200m. Back into Gmund for a look around the Porche Museum and town, quick bite to eat with a rather indulgent Iced Coffee.
Attempted the 35 km long Nochalmstrasse but the Austrian rain
had other ideas and mother nature sneaked in a rather chilly 2 Deg and at 2042 m high that is cold so back to Hochalmspitze for a chill.
Vernon's Goulash for tea made up for the day !
... glacier - hard to believe it wont
be here in 20 years or so time, see a couple of FAT marmots - enough standing around looking and chatting time to set off back over the top and have some fun on the
tarmac :) This must be the road for fun as there are a few cars on test on the pass.
Then discover the B99 - this is gooood.
