Another day , another train. But this time it is for a bigger amount of time and over a bigger distance. Because I am on my way from home Luzern (Switzerland) to the middle part of Austria. Now there are things I did not entirely realize when I moved to the Alps, one of the biggest is that when you are travelling through the mountains is that you are not really able to do this in a straight path. It often means that you have to go around countries and travel over the cities which are not really your choice, but they are key connection point while travelling.
That will mean today I will stop in Liechtenstein, Innsbruck and Salzburg while that is all not really on my route. But hey, it beats the hell out of renting a car or hitchhiking with strangers. Which is not a convenient thing to do in this travel because I have my skis with me together with a shit ton of other stuff, no packing lightly on this trip!
The thing that I like most about travelling by train is that it gives you a tremendous amount of freedom. Not having to be present 2 hours before flight, taking all the food and drinks from home, bring an unlimited amount of luggage, having nice views while looking outside, wifi on board, and if you want to take a nap the driver is still driving :D. It is so much less hassle than driving for instance, train travelling is just a super nice thing to do.
Currently I am passing the Walensee again where I took this picture a couple of weeks ago, and this makes me think a bit on how often I have crossed this part of Switzerland already. Would it be convenient to move closer to this side of the country, or am I thinking way too far again now? I am just constantly thinking about the best options and considering if I should make anything better about it. On the other hand, if it is fine it is fine!
