This is the 3nd part of my travel to Alpine Countries for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #27: My Travels.
Continue from my previous post…
On our way to Innsbruck, we stopped at a small restaurant for lunch. The food wasn’t something to remember, but the view was good.
One guy bought a flask of coffee liqueur. “Only $6, “ he said happily. Only $6! I went to bought one, too. I told the owner I didn’t need a bag, thinking my carryon bag, which I left on the bus, still had plenty of room. Minutes later, when our tour guide saw what I had in my hand, he said, “Oh, no, you don’t want that. Do you even know what it is?” He looked concerned.
Before I could answer, he brought me to see the owner like how teachers would drag their trouble-making student to see the principal. He said to the owner, “She wants to return this. She had no idea what she was buying.”
The owner looked at me; I guessed he was waiting for me to explain more. My eyes were attracted by all different liqueur flavors displayed on the wall right behind him. Should I take blueberry liqueur instead? Pineapple? After giving some serious consideration, I decided I liked what I had – coffee flavor. I said, “No, I am not returning it!”
Our tour guide’s jaw dropped. I quickly walked away, thinking maybe he doesn’t know I am old enough to drink.
(That coffee liqueur was so delicious. It took me several days to finish it, and I enjoyed every sip of it. 😉
It was at Innsbruck, we saw the first McDonald on this trip. I don’t know about other Americans… for me, seeing McDonald in a foreign country, is as warm as seeing American Embassy 😉 I don’t like eating fast food. In fact, Wei and I had many arguments because he likes eating fast food as much as I dislike it. But when traveling, I don’t mind eating at McDonald. (We didn’t eat here though.)
(Roseg Valley) Now we are talking… 😉
Oops… it seems like I need a part-4 for this trip. I thought by skipping a couple of places, I could cover the whole trip in 3 posts, but I was wrong. Part 4 will be photos only. Trust me; you don’t want to be disturbed by any stories, not even mine. Ha. What you will miss are (1) one hotel has an amazing towel rack. There is a switch to turn on the heat and it works great when you want to dry your clothes quickly (2) The McDonald we visited later charges a small fee for ketchup packages. Of course we didn’t get any.
