From Salzburg it was a 2 hour trip by train to Innsbruck which is a town in the region of Tirol and surrounded by mountains. This town was incredibly scenic. Mountains all around you and so close you flet like you could touch them. There was a tiny little bit of snow on the caps but its not winter yet so the weather was warm. In winter the town itself has snow. The winter olympic game were held here in 1974 and we went up the Ski jump tower which gives you a great view across the toen and towards the mountains. We also saw a man who was dry skiing, they spray water down the jump so you dont need snow. Looked fun but scary. Innsbruck is quite small so we again walked around the lovely old town. we stayed in a B&B that was actually right in the old town itself and above a famoud pasry shops which smelt amazing and had very expensive cakes. The largest Swarovski Store in the world is in Inns bruck ) i am not talking about Crystal World) i was in Crystal heaven without being about to buy any of it. boo hoo oh and Swarovski Crytal world which is just out of the town was closed for 2 months and it closed the day we arrived, How rude. anyhow, very beautiful town and thats it for Austria. nest we go to Venice in Italy which is where i am sitting on the world oldest computer right now.
