These days, the only reason I visit Austria is to see my family. As I used to live there, I wouldn’t choose to go there on holiday, and out of all the places I worked it isn’t my favourite. Every time I go there, though, I am still astounded by the scenery, especially in Innsbruck where my brother and his family live. The city is right in the middle of the mountains, and wherever you are you only have to glance up to see the imposing Alps towering over you.
Unlike a lot of cities in the Alps, Innsbruck has maintained a lot of it’s traditional charm.
And the way of life there is still distinctly Tyrolean.
