We start off with a hike. A hike to a marked view point on my map. Bischofer Joch. Which is about 1500m above sea level.
In the morning it was cold and overcast. The weather forecast said that it would be much like this all day. I had marked out several point of interest on the map, so we decided to tick off one of them.
We set off from the bus station outside the Boglerhof hotel, and walked up the side of the mountain (A very steep gradient to get the heart going), before following the A6 route across the side of the mountain.
I had set my eye upon getting to the top of the mountain, but it’s been snowing quite late in Austria in this region and it we were told it was too snowy to get all the way up. So we settled on the view point.
The walk was very well sign posted, and there was a little chalet serving food about 25 mins from the top. So we stopped off for a beer on the way up, and a cheese board on the way down.
On the way back down we followed the road. It was a lot less scenic but a lot faster. The sun was starting to dip towards the mountain so lovely long shadows were being cast.
The weather forecast was wrong though, because the cloud burnt off and it was lovely and sunny for most of the way. A bit too warm for my liking when hiking up the side of the mountain.
Whilst in Devon I flew my drone for the first time in a long while. I will admit I have always been a nervous flyer of my drone, but for whatever reason whilst I was in Devon I just kind of went for it in some places. I particularly don’t like flying it where there are people, but some of the places where we went it was just me and kB, so out it came.
When we came back, I realised that part of the issue is that my drone is very much a “toy”. The range isn’t great, the controller connection to the drone becomes weak often and error messages appear… So after a bit of research I bought a new drone… Video below!
