Fallbach, Carinthia

As we were riding to the lake, we caught a glimpse of this:and we thought we need to stop here on our way back. Which we did. At first, frankly speaking, we wondered if we shoud pay 6 euros to go closer to the waterfall. After a short negociation, we decided we spent lots of money on other stupid things, so maybe this natural monument, as they called it, it is worth the money.And then, the Fallbach waterfall (in translation, the falling spring) came in front of our eyes in its entire splendour. Again, I understand why this place was for the druids, and is for many people nowadays, a place where the energies are being built up again, where the soul comes to union again with the body, in a holy-like communion, for the perfect benefit of the human who just stays there, in astonishment.I've never been to Niagara. I can only imagine the roar, the force and the feeling one can get there. I must also say that this is the biggest waterfall I've been so close to. And I feel blessed for seing it, for coming close to it.The water falls from 200 m high. The same hight of the Stephansdom cathedral in Vienna, they told us. The eye gets tricked indeed. Another comparison, of my own this time, the dam at lake Koelnbrein, that I showed you earlier this week, is also 200 m high. Interesting, right?And then, as a perfect addition to the magic scenery, the rainbow. We found no pot of gold at the end of it, but the wonderful experience we had there is worth for sure a pot full of gold.

  2. It must be fantastic to see this waterfall so near, but I don't understand why we should have to pay in order to see nature. Everything is money today, and that's not right.
