Backpacking Central Europe: Bad Hofgastein, Austria
We woke up in Innsbruck and checked out of our hotel. We had some soya milk and cereal that we ate in the hotel for breakfast. We headed to the train station and found the correct platform which was easier to find than we thought.
We could have used some tea and coffee but we decided to wait.
The train ride was pretty amazing.
We went past a big lake.
We had to wait half an hour for our connecting train at Schwarzach St. Veit Bahnhof.
We finally arrived in Bad Hofgastein
We hopped on a bus with everyone that got off the train in Bad Hofgastein since the town centre was a ways away from the station.
We stopped at Hofer which is the supermarket and this was the view outside.
We got some food at the supermarket and walked to our hotel guided by Google maps. We downloaded offline maps on Google maps for use when we had no wifi.
The walk into town was nice and we enjoyed the scenery and cool buildings.
We bopped around town taking pictures.

There were some Christmas decorations starting to go up around town and there was hot water fountains all over the place to warm up your hands.
We packed it in for the night.
The hotel included breakfast so we got some toast, fruit, coffee, tea, and there was vegan butter surprisingly.
The next day we decided to walk to the train station as it wasn't really a far walk at all. It was really foggy and we weren't able to see the mountains so we lucked out being able to see them the day before.
The walk to the station was pleasant.
We had fun saying Bad Hofgastein over and over as it is a fun place name to say.
We made a short video of Bad Hofgastein. We hope it makes you feel like you were there!
The fog started to go away and we could see the mountains a little bit.
Our train went up into the mountains some more and we were travelling back into a winter wonderland.
We boarded a coach and made our way to Ljubljana, Slovenia. Our third country in this trip.
We got to Ljubljana and it was great being in a little city filled with amazing architecture, and vegan restaurants!
