We spent a rainy day exploring one of Austria's oldest towns, Hallstatt. It may have been unfortunate that is was raining as it prevented us from enjoying a boat ride across the lake and enjoying the view of the Alpine village, but it was still a beautiful city to explore. Plus it's not fun trying to hold an umbrella while taking photos at the same time, ensuring you don't get soaked from the rain in the process (however I was impressed with how well I did, and can confirm I didn't leave Hallstatt looking like a drowned rat). There are around 900 people that reside in the small UNESCO World Heritage region, and I would happily be one of them. The village is so relaxed and quiet and the views are spectacular. The houses are exquisite, with greenery growing all over, and beautifully maintained flowers hanging off balconies. Needless to say, I will definitely be back, hopefully when the sun is shining.
