Summer vacation

This time I want to show you some photos from our summer vacation in 2007.
We stayed in Salzkammergut near Lake Wolfgangsee,
an Austrian region with smooth green hills,
high mountains and lovely blue lakes.
This is a view from our balcony!





We had a wonderful time and it is so good to remember!


Here you find many more beautiful regions from all around the globe:

Beautiful and such a good idea. I too have photos I haven't shared because I just didn't even know where to begin so many thoughts.

...wow, die Fotos mit den Lichtern sehen ja auch wieder stark aus :). Du hast den richtigen Blick beim Fotografieren. Jedes Foto hat etwas unglaublich Magisches. Wie schön. Ins Salzkammergut muss ich, ich sehe schon.... traumhaft!!! Bisher war ich nur ein einziges Mal in Österreich im Urlaub für ganz wenige Tage am Mattsee, aber das war auch so wunderschön.... Hat sich für alle Tage in mein Herz eingebrannt... :)) Österreich... Land der Sehnsüchte :))...

Wonderful!

I'm glad you showed us a little bit of Austrian countryside. I have never seen anyone do that before and much as I love seeing Vienna, I'm very curious and interested about the countryside.

Thanks.

Lovely photos. The candles and fire turned out well, and they are sometimes difficult. It looks like lovely country.

Hello Maria :)

The place you have selected is very beautiful and fully in keeping with your taste which is very exclusive and very special.

The rolling hills, vast expanse of greenery, a long winding road makes a spellbinding picture and a painters delight.

The place looks calm, peaceful and quiet. Very refreshing from the din and commotion of a city.

Those three lights in the pitch dark night are a beauty to behold and a perfect setting for writing fairy tales or if you prefer horror stories :)

I am not very sure whether you, your husband and your dog are sitting near those lights and having a few drinks and dinner late into the night and enjoying naughty jokes :)

I am sure you went for long walks in those lovely surroundings filling your lungs with pure, clean air and toned up your muscles. I console my self with the thought that when I go for a walk on these busy roads of Kochi, I get the smell of fried chicken and fish :)

Your holiday must have been really enjoyable and worth remembering with these fantastic photos.

Many thanks for sharing.

Wish you a bright and wonderful day.
Jealous joseph :)
