Rain Followed us to Innsbruck

Thursday 22 July
First thing I did today was check the weather forecast. Sadly, it was the same as yesterday. Rain rain rain in every city in the area. After little deliberation we decide to go to Innsbruck. Kathrina has friends there that she thinks can host us. 

Our breakfast from the farmer. 

While we we're siting on the back of the camper eating, an Italian man walked by and asked "cafe?" along with the drinking motion and waves us to his camper across the path. He spoke no English or German and we don't know Italian, so while the coffee was brewing we spoke via gestures about the weather. 

After leaving our new Italian friend, we check out of the campground and go into Seis for some sightseeing before the rain hits. 

The drive through the mountains was gorgeous and about halfway to Innsbruck we saw a convent on a mountain and decided to stop. It was a 30 minute hike from the city. 

View from the convent. 

We get to Innsbruck and no one is answering their phones. With no place to stay yet, we go to the city center and walk around in the rain. 

Eventually Kathrinas friend Lea answers and says that she and her boyfriend Lucas would be more than willing to host us! We have some snacks, beer and chat before heading to bed.
