      The Spumberg is a southwest (and therefore very sunny) oriented town of Adnet near Salzburg at the foot of the Schlenken. I wouldn't go on the tour alone, many farmsteads have two yapping dogs: the first ones ran after us, we were only able to drive them back with great difficulty, with the second we passed quite well at an appropriate distance, the third I refused, and we shortened them Round.Apart from that, it was a wonderfully sunny hike while the fog lay in the Salzach Valley and later crept over to Adnet, but by then we were already at the car. In the shopping arena we got a tasty Asian takeaway from the buffet.

      The Adneter Moos is a low moor with litter meadows near Hallein. Litter meadows are not fertilized and only mowed once in autumn, the mowing is used as bedding for animals.
      You can go for a sunny walk there and also include the nearby marble quarries in the round.
      The meal today was red curry with salmon fillet from the Viet Wok in Hallein.

      In 1985 the monastery "Maria im Paradies" was founded on the Kinderalm above St. Veit im Pongau, in the building of the former recreation center for children with lung diseases. The order of the Sisters of Bethlehem is based on the dogma of the bodily acceptance of Mary into heaven (holiday on August 15th).Today the monastery complex consists of a lower part, where pilgrims can go for days or weeks in silence and solitude, and a complex higher up, which is only intended for the sisters.The mountain slope faces south towards the sun, and this is also referred to as the Salzburg sun terrace. It would be nicer to drive up a bit by car and then continue to hike to a summit, e.g. the Hochglocker. As in the last time, however, I was careful to avoid anything that could further burden the stressed occupancy of our hospitals💉😱.

      The Mahdegg Alm is a popular, sun-drenched hiking destination on the south side of the imposing Tennengebirge. In summer, many start out on tours to the Werfener Hütte or further up into the Tennengebirge from a nearby car park. For me it was my goal today.Komoot planned a route where I suddenly found myself fenced in on all sides with barbed wire. I was already thinking of giving up, but first sat down in the meadow, ate part of my snack and thought about it. Finally I found a way to crawl under the barbed wire.
      Before that, a dog barking loudly and a cow pasture had forced me to take a detour.
      During the hike I didn't meet a single person, which I don't like at all when I'm on my own. For that, there was a kind of oldies meeting at Mahdegg. The five ladies chattered and chattered the whole time. When they were gone, I lay down on the wide bench and enjoyed the wonderfully warm sun at over 1200 meters.

      The Georgenberg is a small mountain in Kuchl that has been inhabited since the Neolithic.
      On the mountain is the late Gothic branch church of St. George, in the place of which there was already an early Christian church. An outer pulpit was later installed to indicate that preaching was being carried out in front of larger groups of pilgrims.
      Saint Severin (5th century) is said to have performed miracles here during his visit to Kuchl, which you can read in the biography of Eugippius (or a short version on my tour in March).After about a year and a half I stopped by the Kerterer Gorge again. Unfortunately it is still closed, but work is evidently being carried out to clear the path.At the end there were still some sunny minutes on a bench at the Bürgerausee.

      If you are looking for sun you will often find it on Fuschlsee, especially on the east side there is often bright sunshine, while the west lies under a blanket of fog.An experience on the way there cannot get out of my head: at the bus stop, a man who was missing several teeth spoke to me. He had to go to St. Gilgen and he was missing a few euros. I asked him a little that he was from Hungary, was looking for work and would go to St Gilgen to work a few hours there. He gets 8 € for the hour there. I was afraid of being whizzed on and asked him what "yes" means in Hungarian (one of the few words I know in Hungarian). The answer was correct, "igen" - but what does that mean? On the bus I gave him the € 4 that he was missing. In retrospect, I'm sorry that I was so suspicious and that I didn't at least give him money for the return trip. He has to work two hours just for the bus trip🙈.

      Those who wander across the country often pass them by the often unpleasant smelling, mostly light green silo bales.
      In the bales, grass is made durable for animal feed by fermentation, the fermentation process is the same as with the tower silos. The bales are increasingly displacing hay production - almost 90% of Austrian farmers use silage. In the meantime there are also colorful foils - yellow, pink and blue - which are supposed to remind of cancer prevention. Cancer organizations are supported with the purchase. But I haven't seen these colors with us yet.
      At home today it took the sun a long time to assert itself. So I checked a couple of webcams, got on the train, drove to the sun and went for a little hike.

      On the Schlossberg in Graz there is a 3.5 meter round steel plate with strange signs. A robot welded these symbols into the plate on the basis of alienated acoustic parameters of the Danube waltz. What is special about it is that the alienation was triggered by the Austrian spaceman Franz Viehböck when he was on the MIR space station in 1991 as part of the Austromir project. Quasi Danube Waltz from space.Unfortunately, you cannot continue a tour at another point in komoot, so there are two walks for today.
      Now I'm on the train and have had plenty of time to document the tours. To strengthen myself, I got myself fried duck with rice and garlic sauce at the Graz train station.

      The terraced house settlement of St. Peter in Graz is an outstanding example of residential construction in the 1970s. When I stood in front of it for the first time a few years ago, I was really shocked by the brutal force of the sight. This form of architecture is actually referred to as "béton brut" (raw concrete), as "brutalism".
      1100 people live in this terraced housing estate.
      It's hard to believe, just a few steps further you are in the primeval forest of the Eustacchiopark: in the 1980s, a primeval forest was created here on the site of a brick factory, in which no intervention in nature was made. Fallen trees were left, hedges were not cut. So I encountered wild nature on the small forest paths, I balanced over slippery branches and had to make detours around fallen trees.Two worlds, only a few meters apart.

      At Adneter Riedl there is a squat glass building with black curtains. You live here without walls - and largely without rooms. One area merges almost seamlessly into the other, with hidden sliding doors separating a bedroom and a bathroom from the all-encompassing living area. This open living concept was implemented by the Flöckner and Schnöll team of architects. A black outer curtain made of polyethylene offers a privacy screen, which can also be pushed aside from the outside and then peered in - if you dare, because after all it is a residential building.I was traveling with the brave E, we lifted the curtain on one side and looked out onto a terrace that floated above the ground, from where bamboo bushes grew through the terrace floor.
      Terrific. E wanted to live there right away.
      But she went back with me anyway, and we still enjoyed duck, pumpkin cream soup and farmer's donuts with applesauce in my local.(Information about the house: see links in the highlight)
