Rotorua Marathon 2011 Prize Winner - Jodie Allison, writes about her trip to Austria - The Danube Pathway, Linz to Vienna:
"I wanted to write and thank you for our fantastic walking holiday in Austria! We had such a great time - a real once-in-a-life time trip. We had all sorts of weather from full on snow in Salzburg to hot sun and also ongoing drizzle. The walk was varied and actually quite challenging which we enjoyed a lot. We loved all the accommodation we stayed in and ate untold amounts of strudel and drank huge steins of beer! But luckily we felt incredibly virtuous as we set off each day on our walk and hopefully that chewed up some calories.
Some of the villages we passed through were postcard perfect and the farmland was a real eye opener - especially coming from the Waikato where fences are standard and stock are outside year round. We also loved staying in Vienna at the end of the walk and we managed to get to Budapest as well which made for great comparisons."
