Austrian Alps

we left Vienna in the afternoon and took the N1 - the national road to the west. Passing St. Pölten and Melk we finally stopped at Ybbs at the Danube. Caravans can stay for the night at a parking directly at the river and close to the center (48.181162, 15.081862).

Czech Republic

Driving north to the Czech Republic we stopped close to the border in Unterretzbach, Austria.


We found a parking at the beginning of the village and walked through empty streets until we reached the restaurant „Pollak’s Retzbacherhof“ which we had chosen to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Into the mountains

It was promised to be another very hot weekend so we were looking for a cool place - and there is no cooler place in Austria than Lunz am See.

Offroad Training

We spent a day testing our new winch and driving offroad to get a better feeling of what is possible with our "cochecito" and where the limits are.

don´t worry about sloping tracks


Leaving Vienna in the evening we headed to the north east to a region called Waldviertel.
We made it to Mautern at the Danube and stayed there for the night.
