Austria, Julie Andrews was right about you: IMG_8318 Your hills are indeed alive, and they are no joke! DSC_9530 IMG_8259 From Garmish-Partenkirchen, we pedaled up, up, up and into Austria via gravel trekking paths. We couldn’t escape the hot sun and steep climbs, so food breaks were frequent. Legs screaming in pain, I sang songs from The Sound of Music to stay sane, which likely drove Justin crazy.

IMG_8279 After lunch, we took cover under a canopy of trees to wait out a passing rain storm.
