Austria Innsbruck Mall Pasta

6 June 2016

Time for shorts

The beautiful town square of Innsbruck

Before I forget, I have a tidbit to share from this morning I forgot until now.
When checking out from my little hotel in the last town with the hyphenated name, I noticed on the counter a colorful brochure advertising their spa and sauna in the basement.
I didnt know before now it had this feature.
Anyway, in European style, the brochure featured a buxom topless blonde woman proudly displaying her assets, nothing too unusual about that, I have seen boobs before.
The I looked at the woman who was busy hand writing me the bill so I could check out and go to my train, and realised she was of course the very same topless woman.
'You want to try the sauna?' - unfortunately I had to go get my train.

Back to Innsbruck now, I feel it is a city that would be hard to beat for natural beauty assuming you like mountains as much as I do.
The population is only 120k or so, but theres multiple universities and colleges, and the place is bursting at the seams with tourists, largely from Germany and Italy.
The mountains surrounding the place are so good they have actually held the winter olympics twice.

Now I have to work out what I am doing tomorrow. One thing I will definitely do is collect 1 and 2 euro coins so I can do my washing the next day before I depart for Salzburg, I found a high quality laundromat between my hotel and the station.
I dont think I will do a repeat mountain climb, the ones here are not as high and the path is not the same epic journey. Also its hot, 25 degrees, I had to wear shorts. Fortuitous as I have run out of clean pants. Hence the laundry speech above.

There is also a large botanic garden in the centre of town. It was full of young people in what I at first thought was their underwear.
Some sort of prank maybe? Then I realised, the garden is their beach. There is no beach for millions of miles in any direction, only mountains. So you go sun yourself in the garden.

Being so close to Italy (50 miles) I thought I might have some pasta. I chose the healthiest item on their menu, it was ok, nothing speacial, I was glad they provided cheese and tabasco sauce so I could add flavour.

Now for my brave drink choice of the day. Its sugar free but other than that I have no idea.
The bottle features a topless couple wearing ribbons to cover their genetalia with matching cowboy hats. With a label like that how can it possibly be bad?
