Austria 2011

AUSTRIA 2011 - At the beginning of August, me and my family went to South-East Austria to visit family etc. We flew to Graz airport and then made our way south to a spa town called Bad Radkersburg, right near the Slovenian border. Austria is a beautiful country, all of the houses had pristine gardens with not a single flower out of place. Of course, where we were, there was not much going on entertainment wise, as it is quite a remote part of Austria, but there were village fetes almost every night in all the surrounding towns and villages, where people come together and celebrate the summer and their community. Usually during the day, we visited tourist sites, such as the tower at Frutten-Gießeldorf, where you could see Hungary, Slovenia, Croatia and Austria from. We also visited Riegersburg Castle and the town centre of Bad Radkersburg, where we did A LOT of walking and cycling. The beauty of Austria really inspired me with my art and I did lots of sketching out there of the flowers and landscapes. We only spent a week out there, but I could've spent a lot longer there, especially in the daily 30 degrees heat! :)
