summer: austria

Salzburg. Boozy cake, fresh apricot juice and castles on hills.

Gondola way, way up above St. Gilgan to hike along the mountaintop and down to the valley bottom. Stopping for cake and tea along the way. Swimming in the Wolfgang See.

Hiking in the dry heat of the Kamptal wine region. Going underground to wine cellars monks built 900 years ago. Finding warm plum cake at coffee time.

Vienna in a heatwave. Salads for lunch, with fresh Grüner Veltliner grape juice.

Vineyards in Vienna city limits. Taste-testing a Zweigelt grape.

Last day. Hiking above Vienna. Looking at the Danube River, where we swam the day before.
