Another day, another border

Next on the gallery of me with border markers:  Austria (Österreich).  I hiked from Znojmo, Czech Republic, across the border to the nearest town, hung out for a bit, bought some local apple juice with my leftover Euro coins, and walked back.  Very fun day.

The hike was beautiful:  I took the yellow trail trail from Znojmo along the river, up to a great viewpoint (Sealsfield Rock), down to an old mill valley, and through vineyards and to the little town of Mittleretzbach where one street had row upon row of old wine cellars dug into the ground.  I walked back along the road through the now-abandoned border crossing station and caught the bus from Hnanice.  Highly recommended trip.
