Those who know me know I am someone prone to wander lust ...... Or ending up on an adventure. However even I was surprised to find myself in Salzberg Austria in the middle of a National Park...... Certain towns are only able to be visited by Bob Sled ..... and Austrian winter is no joke. I found myself borrowing gloves, socks and undergarments from friends trying to keep out the chill.
This place is a paradise for anyone who likes to ski/ snowboard and I found myself at the Felsentherman Bad Gastein (The Hot Springs) speaking with many travelers across Europe who had come for the co- ed Saunas as well as the Baths. The baths are magical and my skin was almost instantly clear.........
I didn't know much about the history but soon learned about the prince - and princesses - as historical landmarks were everywhere throughout the tiny mountain towns - There is even a waterfall in the middle of the city ....... of Bad Gastein.
Because Im not the worlds most accomplished skier (I lean towards snowboards and the conditions became advanced quickly I found time to meditate onto of a mountain. I felt so at peace with the beauty of my surroundings. Nature is precious and needs us to protect it - places like this are very special and will always have a place in my heart.
IS there anything else you want to know about my trip in Bad Gastein? I still have to make a post about the secret club we got into for New Years :)
It really is a remarkable place and I would recommend visiting just make sure to bring something warm!
