central eastern alps hiking track, day 01 (0 comments)
we planned a three day hiking tour along the "central eastern alps hiking trail". initially "we" started as a group of eight people. after weeks of planning, and the first day of the hike coming closer, only five people remained. and eventually only four people started on the first day, because the fifth member (me) had to work on a friday - which is quite the exceptional event.
so the group of four started early in the morning, took a train to the starting point at hainburg, and sent me the first pictures of them having fun on the train. a few hours later, a picture of them having a break and a beer at an inn. perfect motivation for my working day.
but it was friday, so there was not much to do at the office, and my working day was over quickly. soon i could hop on the train to follow them; we have planned to meet at the accommodation in parndorf. when i arrived i thought i would find a cheerful and happy crowd, but i found four people being worn out, knackered, and quiet. turns out the total distance of 27.2 kilometres has left its marks.
hurting knees, hips, backs, muscle ache, and toes full of blisters, just to name but a few. maybe it was not such a bad coincidence i was not hiking with them today, as this was the longest distance. next two days are both around only 20 kilometres.
here is the track of the brave hikers on day 01.
