    Hi, I went to Austria and here's my roadtrip.
    I had over 400 pics and a made a tiny selection.

    View on the Main Tower (Frankfurt):

    I have more better pics of the view with clear buildings on it, but I loved t he silhouette and clouds. We were above the Deutsche Bank and other famous buildings.

    On the Grossglockner Pasterze-gletsjer (largest gletsjer of Austria), he melted a lot since I was a kid! And in a few years he will dissappear. Also, he's very gray and polluted by the gas of cars etc... It's mass-tourism on that mountain.
    But I rather liked the lonely walking in desolate mountains, but because of the bad weather, not much pics of that.
    If you want to see bigger and more beautiful mountains you have to go to Swiss anyway ;-) In Austria you have not that mouch mountain groups (Gross Glockner, Gross Venediger, wildspitze,...)

    The Krimmler Falls, highest of Europe, in 3 stadia, the waterfall is 380 meter high.

    And finally drinking a schiwasser!

    Vienna is really nice for City Trips, lots of old large buildings! Also Frankfurt is fun, hip-café's, nice to go out, and great for skyscraperlovers.
    Ow, and Starbucks sucks big time! Crappy service, 'hyped' melanges without the good taste, bad crushed ice within...
    Real Coffee lovers go to Segafredo! Real Italian Coffee with lots of choice.
    I recommend Espresso Macchiato and Eiskaffee. They always give you a glass of cold water to refresh afterwards, standard service :cool:

    That looks like a very cool trip. I really like that mountain photo with the diagonal composition.

    What the hell is a schiwasser? And if it's not beer why would you want to drink it in such large quantities?

    Cheers anyway,
    Jeroen

    It's a little punch of grenadine-concentrate with cold water (melted gletsjerice or snow from the mountains).
    Why that large quantity? When you walk a whole afternoon or a day in the mountains, you get thirsty very soon ;-)
    You can drink tons when you transpired much.
    In fact, most stuff is in half liters. When you don't ask for small, they automatically give you large.
    Like applejuice, spezzi (mix of cola and fanta), beer, ...
