Innsbruck and the Eagle's Nest


Mannheim was a short stay. I think after this, every other city that we stay in will be at least two days and two nights. Our next destination will be at Innsbruck in Austria. We'll be doing a complete reversal route toward Austria, and I'm looking forward to it.

The bus ride through the Austrian plains is quite a site to see. The city that we're approaching is called Neuschwanstein, and it's located on the outskirts of the alps.


Once we arrived, the weather was not what I was expecting. Of course in higher altitudes, you would expect it to be cold, but it was a bit humid. After the bathroom pit stop, we decided to try a restaurant that served traditional Austrian cuisine that consisted of white bratwursts, potatoes, sauerkraut, cheese noodles, and meatballs. Not quite my meal preference, but when in Austria...

After we departed from Neuschwanstein, it was straight for Innsbruck from there. I'll spare the details and say that we got there roughly around 7:30 PM, we got on the tour bus that went straight to dinner. Let's just say that there was a lot of crazy Oktoberfest entertainment and booze to go around. Some guy in our tour somehow twisted his ankle by slipping on a wet spot in the bathroom and was rushed to the hospital, which was unfortunate since he was the only one that we really communicated with. I wish him the best of luck and hope he gets better.
