Malta... Maltatal

Yes, there is a Malta in Austria - the Maltatal. A magic place, I'd say, a valley of waterfalls and power places, of never ending forests, of mountain lakes where man and nature collide for the better. A place worth exploring by car, by bike, by foot. There is where I am going to take you for the next days. But in reverse: from the target of the journey, to its beginning.
So, today, the Koelnbrein dam. Impressive, but calm. One point on earth where you can feel how small you are, but yet fortunate to see such beauty.This trip was made by motorcycle during the annual European Bike Week @ Faak am See.

  4. Nature can make one seem insignificant, and petty at times.

    The pictures are an oasis of calm, specially the one with the cow. Aha, what bliss.
