August 13 – Innsbruck (0 km, 0 miles)

Today was spent just sightseeing around Innsbruck and the surrounding area. Unfortunately, there were low clouds all around, so I didn’t get to see the high peaks surrounding Innsbruck. Martin and I took a drive into the mountains and visited the Otz Valley. This is the area where the 5,300 year old man, Otzi, was found melting out of the Schnalstal Glacier in 1991. Saw several big waterfalls coming down the valley walls, and in one area there was a cluster of about 10 houses several thousand feet up on the side of a mountain. There didn’t really seem like a reason why someone would build houses way up there. It was very strange because it’s something we don’t see in the U.S.

    Hey Scott!

    How’s it going? I hope you’re doing fine!
    Suppose you’re in Italy by now? Don’t forget to try Italian ice cream, pizza, wine and cappucinos!

    Thanks again for your visit!
    It was so nice to have you here and talk about this and that!

    Have a save trip to Rome and then back home, hope to see you again sometimes!

    Martin
