Now this will be the last feature regarding our Summer holidays in Austria, and after Ulli (who operates this blog) already has shown for instance some tracks left by Ernest Hemingway here in Montafon as well, it is now really time for some flowers and animals to be found in the beautiful Austrian Alps, colourful impressions picked up by me.

I like travelling through the diverse realities and cultures of this world not only as a tourist. Nature, history of ancient sites or creative works are fascinating me however also abandoned places or ordinary things can be just magical and amazing. The multiple aspects and rich diversity of our blue planet need to be however nourished and protected.

    1. The Alps are a cultivated, human-made landscape in vast areas. But wild nature usually always to be found above 2,000 m altitude where cows, sheeps or goats usually find not enough to eat. Thanks for your comment πŸ™‚

    1. Yes, I have already read last Autumn that ground water levels are too low in Berlin and Brandenburg, but everybody just hoping that rain to fall in the Winter season to compensate the deficit what was not the case. Where we are living the garden area looks like Sahel Zone now for more than one year, as administration has no permission anymore to water it as required in order to save costs. But the drought hit also severely this part of Austria in 2018, this year the situation improved.

      1. That is almost close to Australian water restrictions! We’ve learned in Spreewald that they are redirecting water from reservoirs so the water is high enough to take tourists through the canals…

      2. That’s the reason why Spree and channels in Berlin still look normal. But this kind of water management does not work forever. I remember to an interview with Derk Ehlert (environmental speaker of Berlin’s municipal administration) in this regard of early Spring 2019. But in general public gets very bad informed about all this!

      3. Really? So we pour drinking water in there? This is a rather said aspect of our connected life. For how long was the rainforest burning until it made the Tagesschau? As long as we can still put it under rug everything is just peachy
