Flag of Austria  ,
Wednesday, August 8, 2007

In the morning we got up brutally early, like we did nearly every day of this tour, to drive over into Austria. It was beautiful scenery on the way there. We got to stop for lunch in the 3nd smallest country in the world... Leichtenstein!! We had pizza for lunch and I'm certain it was the best pizza I have ever had!!

From Leichtenstein we drove into Austria where we got the opportunity to stop and go white water rafting down the river Inn with some tour mates... this was of course after taking 1/2 an hour to squeeze myself into the most flattering wetsuit, booties, helmet, splashguard, and life jacket... that was fun.... Anyways, the rapids were awesome, the water was freezing, and we managed to make it through still smiling at the end... where we were congratulated with a shot of Austrian schnapps... yucky, but it warmed us up!!

We were off in the bus again to drive the little ways we had left into Innsbruck where we were dropped off in the centre of the city/town and left to shop around for a while. Neither Britt nor I found much interest in the shops there, so we were ready to get to the hotel shortly after. We made it to the hotel, had some dinner, and then ventured back into the centre where a local guy directed us to this little pub that was in the very back corner of a park... we never would have found it on our own. We hung out there with a bunch of other Contiki-ers for a couple drinks and laughs, and then headed to bed.
