One of the nights during my Europe trip was spent in Innsbruck, the cultural and tourist centre of western Austria.
I found it to be a picturesque little town with beautiful old buildings, the Inn River and a stunning backdrop of the Alps.
It was nice to take time out of a hectic trip and just go for a nice, long stroll around this small and quiet town. I think even by this stage, I was trying to catch up with which country I was in! I'm still amazed at the fact that in Europe, you can be immersed in a whole different culture/language in a mere matter of hours of travel by road. Incredible.
Loved the old buildings in the Altstadt 'The Old City'
It almost felt like I'd stepped back in time!
All the strudels and tortes you can think of...
The next day, it was off to Swarovski crystal world:
The Swarovski crystal world had all these displays inside, with 8 different worlds and a massive shop at the end.
We also passed through Liechtenstein, a tiny country just over 160 square kilometres that is bordered by Switzerland and Austria.
