A week and a half in Austria on holiday, and it’s taken me this long to get round to sharing my meditations on cows with you? What’s wrong with this picture? We’re staying at a Hütte (cabin) behind a dairy farm about half an hour south of Kitzbühel, and I assure you: I prefer the… Continue reading Austria isn’t only for cows
