Jun 10, 2018 - Zell am See

We headed out to visit Zell am See. It was an easy drive over the mountains and a lovely hot day. Once parked as we wandered through the town we found the town was hosting a Vespa rally. It looked as if it was just finishing. After exploring the town, we found the lakeside path and enjoyed a walk along the lake along with a number of other Sunday visitors

May 27, 2018 - Tout un point de vu !!!

Bonjour à Tous, Familles zé Amis, Bien oui 1 mois déjà que je suis partie, à ce jour (27 mai) 1300 km. De retour aussi en Autriche depuis le 22 mai. Ses paysages de montagnes, Vallées verdoyante et rivières tumultueuses. Petites villes ou gros villages sur les pentes de montagnes avec fermes accrocher aux flans des montagnes. Plusieurs scieries, sa sens bon le bois couper et la senteur des fermes me rappelle de bons souvenir d’enfance. Beaucoup de pistes cyclables qui longent les rivières, pas trop incliner, beaucoup sont des anciens chemin...

Jun 2, 2016 - Zell am See

Thursday 2nd June 2016 – Austria Yep, more f**king rain overnight – god this is worse than being in Fort William, at least you expect it to rain there and it’s over in six hours and you get a wee respite – but here it’s just more and more! At breakfast the rain stops and we hurriedly break camp – all the stuff outside, tables chairs etc, is sodden but we put it all away and then have to wait for another caravan outfit to leave (and they take ages) before we can push (yes, by hand) the caravan back to get hitched up! But we are soon underway...

Feb 4, 2012 - Day 29 - "Knob Scratched" Austrian Styleee!!!

So today we arrived in Zell Am See. I’ve been waiting eagerly for this weekend and had high hopes As for the Alpine lodge I’d sought out on the internet: the hotel looked amazing, with balconies overlooking a lake or mountainous panoramic and with it being a ski resort surely it would be alive with holiday makers and more importantly some young Brits. We got here, thank fully without any drama. Arriving there seemed to be quite a bit of hustle and bustle, even if it wasn’t as busy as I’d anticipated. We pulled up to our digs… Sporthotel...

Dec 25, 2008 - Christmas in Austria

We got up to the mountain a bit late as we were talking to an English couple from London. When we finally got there we went right up the top of the mountain and were 2000m high. Brett skied for a bit and found a great run, and then we met for lunch on the lower part of the mountain (about 1300m). From there Brett skied down to the bottom and I caught the lift. On our way to dinner it was snowing. We had a beautiful Austrian dinner and were even given part of a typical Austrian dessert, a souffle, from a couple, as it was huge and there was...

Dec 24, 2008 - Zell am See

After an awesome breakfast (we got cooked eggs) we headed off and hired out Brett's ski gear. He then headed up the mountain while I went window shopping. Zell am See is situated on a lake and it is absolutely stunning. Thanks goes to my sister Heidi for recommending this place. Now I was supposed to meet Brett for lunch but my mobile was playing up and I couldn't contact him nor could he contact me, so I let him fend for himself and I went in search of lunch. Most places including the supermarkets closed at 1pm (for their family christmas...

Hi everyone, We weren't able to use the wifi at the hotel in Austria so I will back post. Just to clear some things up with the camera issue, we have the charger for the slr but we have a 4GB card in it and the PDA doesn't accept it so we took the little pentax with a 1GB card and have been taking some photo's with it to post on here. We forgot the pentax charger. Anyway today we left Switzerland and Brett wanted to go through Liechtenstein so we did. Not a lot to see except a castle where the current prince lives. From there we crossed...

Mar 14, 2006 - Week in Maria Alm, Austria

Well, I've been a bit slack updating the website as I've been pretty busy at work and have been travelling quite a bit, so its now time to try and catch up. We flew into Austria on the Saturday night, to be met by Stu - the geezer who's chalet we were staying at for the week. Quite a few brits seem to be trying to escape the UK for mainland Europe, setting up similar businesses in this way. The chalet was pretty funny - felt like it was straight out the 1970's with lots of browns and beiges, and a pretty extensive 'wall of death' - lots of...

Feb 10, 2006 - Zell am See, Austria

We traveled with the Mogul Ski Club of Virginia Beach, VA to Austria from Feb 10-18. We flew in to Munich and traveled 3 hours south by bus to Zell am See, Austria. We stayed at the Hotel Neue Post, a 4 star hotel. Zell am See is set in the Austrian Alps on a beautiful mountain lake. We did some alpine skiing, traveled by bus to Innsbruck, toured the Zwarovsky Crystal Factory museum, had a spectacular evening sleigh ride and some folks also went to Salzburg one day. Please see the attached photos for a brief snap shot of our trip.
