It's always a sad moment when it's time to leave after a great holiday. But at least that means you've HAD a great holiday, and we certainly have no complaints on that score after this fantastic week in Seefeld.
However, with bags packed and last-minute shopping complete, we had some time to fill before we needed to head back to the airport.
Walking back from Leutasch yesterday, we had seen a likely-looking restaurant for lunch - about an hour's walk each way, and a promising menu to boot.

Once again, it was a lovely sunny morning, and we thoroughly enjoyed the chance to get a few more miles under our belts. Something else we thoroughly enjoyed: our lunch! We chose platters of home-smoked ham (Speck) that came complete with bread-and-butter, pickles and a glass of Schnapps!

The ham was strong in flavour and robustly smoked, but delicately cut and melt-in-the-mouth tender, and we luxuriated in the sunshine eating, drinking and making the most of every last mouthful and every last minute.

Then it was time to head back, slightly sad at leaving, but in the knowledge of a great week with lots of walking, great food, rest and relaxation.
I'm not a betting man, on the whole - but I reckon we'll be back for more one of these days!
