SUNWAY – AUSTRIA’S ALPINE SPLENDOUR TOUR

Jacinta Mc Glynn (Travelbiz) heard the yodelling cry from Mary Denton (MD Sunway) and slipped into her drindl skirt to climb the Alpine peaks in order to bring you the indescribable beauty of this place. It’s chocolate box pretty, pristinely clean and absolutely should be a bucket lister. We flew into Munich on a lovely Aer Lingus flight and drove through green valleys and verdant meadows to the cute village of Kaprun.

Jacinta faced her fears today by taking the cable car to Kitzsteinhorn Glacier in Kaprun. I’m still in shock that I attempted it (I have vertigo and a pathological fear of heights), but I did it! What an experience. Gliding up a vertiginous slope to the majestic Alpine peaks, liberally dusted with snow like icing sugar coated ridges, it was an awesome sight. My fearless companions, Ann and Jo, were equally thrilled to have conquered the peak. Seriously, the beauty of Austria is unparalleled. Sunway are showing us the best of it. Kaprun village is lovely and nearby Zell am See is delightful. More anon. Sunway’s tour is simply splendiferous! We have a little boat trip planned on Zell am See lake and the excitement of visiting Salzburg is simmering at the prospect of seeing the birthplace of Mozart, one of the world’s favourite composers. Our Tour Leader, the wonderful Frank Mackin, was off high on the hills with the lonely goatherd! The group is expecting tall tales later and he may even be sporting lederhosen! I also need to return to the Alpine slopes as they are alive with the sound of music. Julie Andrews may need to move over….
