In about two hours, I'll board a train to Stuttgart where I'll change to one to Lindau (Lake Constance) and there to another one to Dornbirn in Austria. O.K. will meet me there and take me to the place in Bregenz Forest (which is, by the way, not a forest but the name of the entire region there) where he's been staying since Monday afternoon.
I'll be joining him for a long weekend, having taken today and Monday off. Our hotel has a spa and the meals are luxurious; even if the weather foreacst should be true and it rains all Saturday and Sunday, we won't get bored anytime soon - the most important thing is that we get to spend time together.
Up until now, it's been gorgeous weather there, too, and O.K. has sent me photos of the mountain hikes he's been on every day. With his permission, I am showing you what it looks like there:
When I saw this in one of O.K.'s emails, it looked familiar. And sure enough - this is the Kanisfluh, a mountain I flew past back in April this year! Click here if you want to see the pictures from that flight.
The valley where our hotel is:
One morning, the bus O.K. had planned to get on (to get to the bottom of another mountain to climb) was half an hour late. The reason? See for yourself:
I am very much looking forward to this weekend - never mind the weather forecast!
