hiking in tirol (0 comments)
as our next holiday will involve some hiking, we thought it would be a good training to do some hiking. also we could test our shoes and see how good they fit and if we get blisters. so why not hike in tyrol, like... the gratlspitz, for example. a nice three hour hike, there and back. and so we started our ramble with nina's dad at a small car park near the "holzalm".
it was a pretty hot day, with lots of sunshine. so i was rather happy when the track went through a cool wood, because with all the heavy camera equipment, it gets pretty strenuous after some time.
the ascend to the cross on the summit took as a little more than one and a half hours, but we made it and so far we were pretty good, only my right heel hurt, getting rubbed raw in the shoe.
on the summit nina's dad suddenly said he had to leave to run some errands, and he will take the path we came from, because it is the fastest one. but for the scenic tour he recommended a different path to us. so he gave us instructions how to go and where to take turns; all easy, all good, very simple.
just that it was not simple, not good, and not easy. turns out nina's dad was pretty wrong, his instructions were misleading, and his estimation how long it will take us to get to the holzalm again were also a long way off.
two and a half hours later, as opposed to the given estimation by nina's dad of one and a half hour, we arrived at the rendezvous, very tired, very thirsty, very hungry (and a bit angry). my heel was chafed pretty bad by the time we arrived. luckily at the holzalm we could rest, drink and have a delicious escalope. so we found out two things today: firstly, i need other shoes. i think i will get some good proper hiking shoes, and secondly, never trust nina's father when he gives any estimation.
