I still have a lot of pictures to show you from the roadtrip we made two weeks ago. This place called Bad Ischl was the first stop. Here we went for a strole threw the town and sat down at a cozy cafe right next to the river. I must say it was a very idyllic place and I'm happy we spontaneously stoped there. The little town had cozy streets, nice surroundings and that cute train drove threw town with tourists. What Stefan told me the town is famous for their "Thermen" and Spa hotels. People comes there to relax, hike and enjoy the different spa options. There were also some royal buildings and monuments. Who knows, maybe the kings and queens also stayed there... Haha I don't know, but it was a nice place and I can recomend a visit if you are in the area.

Hallstatt

Adventures & Travels

Hallstatt was really like a dream come true! I've seen that view on pictures so meny times and been dreaming of going there ever since the first time I saw it. Now I've been there and it was really an amazing place. The only thing that destroyed this town a bit was all the chinese tourists and they where all over the place. They ran around with theire cameras and selfiesticks and that kind of destroyed my picture of Hallstatt a bit. It was really hard to concentrate on the surroundings when there was a chinese tourist or a sign in mandarin where ever you turnd your head... Okey, it was maybe not that bad, but bad enough that it destroyed the experience. The restaurants was overpriced of cause and there were a lot of tourist shops. That's not what I want to see when I go to a place looking like that and it's sad that the town changed so much because of the tourism. But over all It was just as beautiful as it looks like in all the pictures and it's absolutelly worth a visit. I think I would recommend to go there eighter in the very early morning (if you are there to take pictures) or in the later afternoon. I was there in the middle of the day and you as a photographer know that it's very hard light then. That made it to a bit of a  challange for me, but I think it turned out okey in the end. Hit me with questions about traveling to Hallstatt, if you have them! 
 
 
I'm day dreaming and looking in to the future, when the rain are poring outside my window. What is there in the end of the horizon and after that? I'm looking forward to see what the future has to offer at the end of the horizon and explore what comes after that.
