Slightly frazzled Kiwi tourist, cold German beer, Austrian mountains - ah! The perfect combination. Natterer Boden.

There is nothing nicer than a cold German beer on a hot day. ;-) Cheers Anna

Ohhh REALLY!? I've never tasted - have to correct that on next summer ;D Cool&hot summershot!

Cheers, Ritva

You're right, Anna. Wine's my usual tipple, but it was sooo hot, a nice refreshing beer was the only option. :D

Ritva, seriously there is nothing better on a summer afternoon. And those German beers are the best!

Ritva Astikainen on September 16, 2009

Ooo, I can't wait until next summer?

By the time we'd left Austria I'd pretty much gotten over my phobia of wasps. They are everywhere. I now understand why traditional steins have a lid on them. It's necessary to use the cardboard beer mats as a lid over you glass, rather than under it to soak up the condensation. Otherwise the stupid creatures just dive in and drown in your drink. :(

Ritva Astikainen on September 16, 2009

OHH really! It's good to know, as I'm hysteric if they come near! For me better to stay here ;D

I agree, wasps shouldn't be allowed to drink as they become quite belligerent. Hope you had a great time Lisa!

looks tasty!

Hey, Guy. We had a fabulous time, despite the waspishness of certain locals. I'd go back at the drop of a hat.

d..., tasty and refreshing it was. The perfect way to wile away a hot afternoon.

Hey Lisa, got a tsunami headed your way? Our news said so.

AnonymousKiwi on September 30, 2009

Yeah, a bit of a storm in a tea cup down here. Turned out to be no bigger than a regular wave. We had the usual, people who should have know better all flocked to the beaches for a look. Sadly disappointed, the lot of them. Sounds like Samoa was badly affected, tho. :(

Glad you didn't wash out to sea. Now that there was that big one a couple years ago, they'll have to get all wide-eyed about every shake that happens. Just keep your floaties tied to your belt, and you'll be A-OK!

Que buena que fresca esta um....

The tsunami warning system works OK for those of us far enough away to react. The poor folks in Samoa are not so lucky. I'm afraid even floaties wouldn't have saved them, they had only minutes between the quake and the waves.

Era fresco y de restauración, Ricardo
