Last dinner in Austria and it’s a Tyrolean classic: dumplings.
Cheese dumplings in broth.
One type is filled with spinach and the other with grey cheese. I put them on top of the last of the rhubarb.
Spinach dumplings, surrounded by crisp-fried Speck and ramps.
A few photos from my short hike today (only 3 hours and it was an easy hike):
A box on the side of a farm house.
You put money in the small slot on left and take your egg carton. One has someone’s name on it so don’t be touching it. Rural Austria still uses a trust system. I saw 2 elderly women got a carton out of the box. One of them took the top carton out but her friend said “no, that one is for Renate.”.
My hiking snack: deer sausages. At first it looks like someone’s dog has left something behind.
It’s still not touristy yet and I didn’t come across many hikers in the woods. For now it’s nice and quiet. Sometimes I saw only 1 person the whole time. June through Sept is high season, and then you have skiing season. April, May and November are the 3 quietest months.
So many hiking paths everywhere. I love it.
Going home tomorrow. Only a little over 1 hour flying (direct!) and it’s a totally different world. I had planned to go to the Jura but changed my mind and am glad I did! (France is never a priority for me)
