Probably the highlight off my trip so far. This is quite possibly the most relaxing, chilled place. Its just what I need at this point. Basically just a couple of nights off. The hostel here feels just like home. The people running it are family people, and are super duper nice and look after is. The common room is just like a cool little lounge room. Last night we though bugger it so spent two hours or so cooking up this pasta sauce with about 8 vegetables. I cant say how much I love it here in the summer. Wee were in the hostel for about 5 minutes and tried to book another night, sadly the were booked out. So we made do, met some cool Canadians while we were cooking so played Trivial Pursuit until 2 in the morning, even though we really should've gone to bed and got an early one. Except it was a little bit tougher cos it was the version from 1982....hmmm. Very tough. But we ended up caning them in the end. Hooray!

Woke up today and basically spent about 4 hours canoeing with Jesse through the town and then all the way out into the countryside. Theres not much to say other than how beautiful and peaceful it was. Was good to get out of the cities for a little bit and take in some nature for a change. Ill have to put up some photos. Although it must be said that poor Jesse is a cyclist, so he has these tiny little T-Rex arms, and I think it is fair to say that I am a bit of unit, so we did end up going around in circles for a little bit. Its really funny though with their lack of OHS over here. They have these weirs, so there a couple of hairy bits that can get in a bit of trouble, kinda like rapids. They asked if we wanted life jackets and we said nahh we should be alright, whichthey weren't overly concerned about. We asked if we cold take a few cans for the journey. Not a problem. You Beaut. So of we go with a few beers and ready for a bit of action. Its kinda like Laos though, they have all these little bars and stuff set up every now and again by the river, so you jump up and demolish a beer and move on. Or a super awesome Mojito as was the case. But yeah its just a really nice place to have a goo chat with someone, have a few beers, take in some nature and kill an afternoon relaxing, especially since the current is basically strong enough to carry you down the river anyway. Now I am super ready for Salzburg, Berchtesgaden and Zell am See!
