A couple of weeks ago, I tagged-along with hubby on his business trip to Innsbruck. All I knew about the place was that it was near the Alps, but as it has been alternating between sweltering and thunderstorms, I didn’t need much persuasion. Of course, hubby tried to clue me in, citing it’s location in Tirol and the city’s eloquent history; however, I have the singular talent of actively not listening – so I didn’t hear a thing! To my reasoning, if I know everything about the place before I get there, then what am I going for? What can I say, I like to be surprised!
As we got near the end of our 5-hour drive from Vienna and the first views of the Alps greeted me, that old thrill of visiting someplace new flooded through my body! Here’s a quick tour of my first day in the Altstadt (Old City).
