A wide green valley: Hall Wattens in Tirol

A wide green valley encircled by high mountains and crossed by the river Inn, the same stream that gives the name to the capital of the Austrian Tyrol. This is Hall Wattens, a marvelous destination surrounded by nature, which we have discovered through a long weekend of early May. Snow-clad peaks, perfect meadows, cows out to pasture, high steeples and embattled towers, in addition to that sensation of perfection permeating the landscape. This is how the region of Hall Wattens immediately welcomed us. Attractions and experiences in the region of Hall Wattens Making bread in a farm As soon as we got there we immediately started our engines! The local tourism authority organized a nice experience for all of us tourists: a trip to a farm, to make bread the old-fashioned way, using a wood-fired oven and doing everything by hand. Giulia likes cooking and once we had put our aprons on, we (all 4 of us) started to knead with water, flour, yeast, various pips, so as to realize loaves of the typical dark …

Prague with baby

Prague with a baby

From Trieste to Prague by car is quite a long journey, with a baby of only three months almost an adventure. All the journey in highway, via Lubiana, Graz, Vienna (with its endless by-pass) and Brno, all of which takes about 8 hours if nothing unexpected happens. But something always crops up, one in particulare, snow in the border between Austria and Czech Republic- Brno. The result? Almost two hours of delay on the predicted time, half an hour of tension due to the cautious driving and we arrive in Prague almost at midnight. Our little boy has been very good; he slept and gobbled up milk, played with rattles and other things, so for him the road passed by quickly. Having arrived to our hotel just outside the city, Hotel Nabucco, not bad, chosen partly for the affordable price, and because equipped with reserved internal parking. Something that is never to take for granted in a large city. We fix ourselves up in our hotel room and straight after we go eat something close …
