3rd August 2012 - Today was one of our trickiest journeys, 2 changes, 8 hours but we got away with a private train compartment for most of the trip and Davros managed to (finally) finish his book "Along Came A Spider". Jambo worked his magic on another unsuspecting OAP passenger and a "special" person on the final leg of the journey tested our patience, especially Jimbob's. Travelling through Austria was awesome, definitely a change of landscape from Zagreb. Once we arrived we caught the "free" E bus and walked up to our accommodation. We had a cheeky nap and headed into the centre where a skate festival was on. We had a cheeky snitzel and headed to the moustache bar, famous for Einstein's and Charlie Chaplin's moustaches. Then we headed to a naughty side bar "Havana" for some cheeky Tequilas with orange and cinnamon (times three). Then onto Aftershave Club where we downed more shots, "Captain Corona" met up with Gabrielle and Jambo worked his magic with an Austrian all thanks to Jimbob's match making skills..."Have you met my mate?". A great random night finishing at around 4am.
4th August 2012 - Today we got up quite late with shot hangovers. We hiked up to Hafelekar up on the mountain side, stopping for directions from an attractive receptionist and apple strudel and pancakes enroute. Davros' espedrills took a pounding but completed the challenge sufficiently. Then we caught a "free" J bus into town where Jimbob had his hobbit leg shaved by a hen party. The culture vultures then visited the 360 degree bar to take in 360 degree views of all around Innsbruck and numerous landmarks in a huge torrential downpour, the storm heading over the mountains looked immense. We then hit a few souvenir shops and back to the hostel for a cheeky nap. That night we headed to Cafe Nikola for a cheeky snitzel and a Zipfel Beer, followed by a pint in the Hofgarden Cafe and a search for the Weekender Club, which was closed on a Saturday night!! In a slight change of plan we went bowling and had a currywurst and a much appreciated chilled night.
