No Wurst for the Wear
Über-blogger and recently married man Jason Kottke returned from his trip to Austria and Switzerland. While we're not clear as to the vagaries of what exactly he did in a business way while he was abroad, he did take the oppurtunity to sample many, many sauasges in Austria. And thank God! Because now you get to hear about it too:
From thence to Innsbruck in the Austrian Alps. At 10,000 feet above sea level, we had an unspecifed wurst (the restaurant called it, basically, "the sausage of the day") that ranks among the best food I've ever tasted, but that assessment may have been colored by the fact that we'd hiked up a glacier to get it. On our last day in Innsbruck, we surrendered to the comfort of cafe chairs and had bratwurst (mit sauerkraut und mustard) at a small place in the old town. After a hard day of walking, it beats eating standing up, which is how it works at the wurst stand.And you think that blogs--us included--don't bring you hard-hitting news items? Take that, travel sections everywhere. Eating standing up sucks after walking the whole day. We agree 100%.
