No Snow in Austria
08.12.2006 12 °C
December in Austria is usually a very cold month with (hopefully) lots of snow.
Because when there is snow all the landscapes will look very beautiful and romantic, and one can do some winter sports such as skiing.
But what is happening this year?
No snow in December. All the landscapes are still green!?!
Well, at least this way we got some more nice and sunny days, giving us the possibility to visit a nice place about one hour south of our home.
Contrary to the weather forecast the air was very cold in the beginning of our route.
Probably this was due to our route leading along a small river and through a forest.
Fortunately later we left the forest, and once we reached the open we pleasantly could feel the warm sunshine...
...and enjoy some nice views.
Later we reached lake Gleinkersee...
...and started to walk around it.
If I looked like a monkey? haha...
Oh my god, standing in the heavy wind, almost would be blowed down!
What did I look at?
It was pity that the sunshine could not reach the small lake, it was blocked by a mountain nearby. If not, the lake would look much nicer!
We had planned to rest to take some food on our way back to the car, but unfortunately there was not any sunny and nice place on the remaining of the route.
So we took our car and drove just a few minutes until we saw some place to sit. Although it was next to the road, it was still nice to have some food there and enjoy the views to the mountains around.
My honey was enjoying the nice sunshine and landscape in such a quiet beautiful small village.
