INNSBRUCK: Capital of The Alps
Photos taken / written by JENNIFER MAHON | This post was read 868 times
Day 14…of 19. So off we go early in the morning (no breakfast, not even a coffee!) leaving Bad Reichenhall, Germany, heading west for 150 km (about 2 hours driving time) to Innsbruck, Austria. Quite confusing, had no idea what country we were in half of the time!
Again, another city not really on my bucket list, but since I had to drive by there, may as well stop and walk around for a bit. After fighting through insane traffic, thanks to a combination of construction and detours and tons of tourists, we finally find parking at the Markthalle garage beside Marketplatz.
Now, my memory is fading quite a bit, we saw so many places on this trip, they’re all sort of melding together. I did keep a notebook, but all I can gather from my scribbles is that it had a cute waterfront, and “aggressive pigeons” in the Old Town Square (I guess that’s what happens when I don’t have coffee in the morning!). I’ll do my best to caption the photos, but you’ll have to forgive my lack of information on this one.

That’s all I got. The rest of the time was in search of a café with WiFi to finally get some caffeine into my system!

The aggressive pigeons! Packed with tourists (yes, I know I'm one of them), but beautiful
