24-25 Oct 2014
After a week of traveling around EU, I went back to my first destination via train. I would be flying from Innsbruck back to Singapore. I arrived at about 9pm. I, first, collected my luggage from Grauer Bar Hotel and headed to my night’s accomodation, Hostel Marmota. Just to mention, this hostel was far from the city center. In the cab, I was actually wondering if I was still in Innsbruck.haha
Morning came, I went to the toilet and , lo and behold, the view from my toilet window made me drool. Innsbruck mountains were already snow-capped. It was already the beginning of winter. OMG, I’ve experienced both autumn and winter in Innsbruck! How cool can that be??!?
I prepared and set for my journey to meet up with Kaye, my friend. She would be bringing me up the highest point of the Nordkette mountains (which were dividing the city from Germany).
We decided to meet up at the Hauptbahnhof (main train station), and off we go. First level was a funicular ride, and then the remaining two were via cable car. The view from the top was ethereal. Mountains tops were about 30% covered with snow and the blend of the colors of the soil, rocks and trees, which were still partially exposed,were perfectly mixed forming a surreal view that can elicit feelings of despondence because of the fact that, I would have to leave that beauty soon. Hay
Anyway, life must go on. We then, decided to go for lunch at the restaurant on top of the mountain and headed down to the city center. I bid Kaye goodbye and thanked her for her hospitality and the chocolates and coffee she brought for me (so thoughtful). I ,then, collected my luggage and went directly to the airport.
Goodbye for now, Europe. I will be back soon!
