Austria is an amazing place for travel photography. Probably.
OK, this page feels like a bit of a fraud. Other than passing through Austria on my way to Slovenia, I’ve only been there once. And that trip to Austria was before travel photography became a thing for me.
That will likely be obvious given how few images there are in this gallery.
Apologies For Not Coming Back
I can’t really explain why I’ve not been back to Austria. Maybe it’s a bit too polished compared to the Balkan countries that I’ve fallen in love with. But the mountain scenery that should more than make up for that. Maybe it’s just too close to Slovenia for its own good. And nowhere can compare favourably to Slovenia.
Maybe the real issue is that my only real trip to Austria wasn’t to a good enough place to really whet my appetite.
There’s nothing wrong with Villach. But, it’s not picture postcard Austria. It was heavily bombed in the Second World War and it does show a bit. While there are some attractive buildings, a lot of it is the bland, anonymous urban landscape you see a lot of in Central Europe.
So, I’m sorry Austria. It’s not you, it’s me. I promise that you’re high on my list of countries to re-visit.
