Far as I'm concerned these guys are more important than any view of Austria. They really looked after us, gave us abed and a shower for the night, drove us around etc. when we attempted to leave Villach pissed as farts in the middle of the local festival. (Actually we tried to leave earlier but some other locals ran away with our bikes and hid them in a bar, so we had to chase after them and upon arrival they ferociously held us down while vast quantities of beer was poured into us, but despite such treatment, we really liked Villach. Its a beautiful city with crazy people, even the local copper let us away with drunken cycling without lights (You must remember that Rules are VERY important in Austria so we were lucky)
As we stood looking down the mountain instead of up it. This is the view down from Malnitz to Ober-villach on the other side of the Alps from Bad Gastein and Salzburg.
YEEHAH downhill with no front brakes - here goes!!!
We have to cycle over those....
Think this was only about 50 km from Salzburg
- Pros:Yoghurt, chocolate, mountains did I say the food was great?
- Cons:RULES (but a little less than Germany)
- In a nutshell:Nice people in a nice place
