Photo of Austria

The Alps: Wind suctions cups the goggles to your face, as the bitter air licks at your ski jacket, all while hurtling down the slopes of the Alps. Pine trees wiz past you and your skis graze the snow leaving two neat paths trailing behind you down the mountain. The air is cold, seeping through zippers and buttons, but adrenaline fills your insides as the steepest part of the slope comes up.

Alpine skiing is typically Austrian, but so are singing in grassy fields while images of the Sound of Music play through your mind, and baroque churches that crawl into the sky, asking for admiration. The tourist spots are always ready for you, but spend a day exploring small towns in the countryside to meet some real Austrian farmers, where you can have a few drinks and a hearty traditional meal at a local pub.
