Flight

Having spent the night at the top of the Großglocknerstraße, I set out for Wien (Vienna) for an early dinner with a friend. However, I had one small problem - I was running about two hours early.

 

So when I spotted the form of the Erlebnisburg Hohenwerfen (Hehenwerfen Fortress) below, and a motorway exit, I jumped at the opportunity (being something of a castles buff).

 

How was I to know that I would get nary a castle shot worth keeping... as my timing was impeccable: within five minutes of arrival, the falconry display got underway.

 

This ol' boy started things off.
