Hallstatt: An Austrian Love Affair

It's true that I was on foot.  It's true that I stayed in Pauline's attic and picked at runny eggs three mornings in a row. It's true that I rented a bike from an extraordinarily crass bike rental guy named Eddie.

Despite all of these things, it's true that I fell head over heels for Hallstatt, Austria.

Nestled in the Austrian Alps, right on the lake, is fairytale land, otherwise known as Hallstatt. And if this is what the "end of the world" looks like, as dubbed by a few locals, then, well, I'll take it.

I fell hard for Hallstatt. Here's 14 reasons why:

1. It looks stellar from any angle:


Taking in the view from above
2. Because...fairytales



3. It glows at dusk



4. Hotdog paninis


MIND BLOWN

5. Sausage


YES IT'S WRAPPED IN BACON

6. Impromptu Oompa concerts on balconies




7. Swan staring contests



8. Boat rides across the lake



9. Street wanderings




Trees grow ON THE SIDES OF HOUSES

10. OODLES OF CHARM. OODLES




11. This



12. And this


Because no fairytale is complete without a swan...

13. Oh, and this



14. Bam. 



Alas, Hallstatt, how I love thee.
