what is a journey?
a journey is the day
the day there
the day you
enter the view
from your window
A wonderful poem taken from ‘The Road North’ by Alec Finlay and Ken Cockburn.
I started my Austrian travels in Vienna at the end of September 2017 because I was attending the European Shiatsu Congress. There are 2 blogs covering the city: 26 September and Vienna 2. I stayed in Ursula’s flat and looked after her cats, for which I am very grateful.
After a week, I walked along the Danube river to Andlersdorf to stay with the kind and gentle Sabine.
I made a pilgrimage from Vienna to Mariazell, the Via Sacra. Here are links to that:
Day one, Hinterbruhl to Heiligenkreuz
Day two to Kaumberg
Day three, to Sankt Veit an der Golson
day four, to Lilienfeld
day five, to Turnitz
day six, to Annaberg
day seven, to Mitterbach
Styria Mitterbach and Hubertussee (on the way)
and arrival into Mariazell;
Thence to Graz for a few days where I danced the Lindy Hop to a jazz band on the street.
I made my way by bus to the Worthersee and trekked from Klagenfurt to Cap Worth to Villach, and from there I crossed into Italy.
