There are several sayings about people, who love the seaside and others who love mountains. It’s a bit like being a dog or a cats person. One can’t have both.
My family has the tradition of spending one hiking weekend per year in the foothills of the Alps in Austria. Already till 20 years. However, we’re all more the seaside lovers. So this hiking holiday in Austria is the alibi weekend to pretend being both. Not to freeze and shiver we try to get the cabin between May and July.
