Vomp, sick day
I got a bad soaking on Day 23 from Lofer, mostly wet feet because my waterproofs kept me reasonably dry. By the time I reached Soll I was feeling ill with all the symptoms of a bad chill. It didn’t affect walking but by evening I was wrecked. I wanted to reach Innsbruck today where Starbucks were on standby but this morning the red traffic light said Stop. The hotel kindly provided some free LF tests but as expected it was negative. Never mind the bright lights of Innsbruck; I have another night in Vomp.
Sunday night in Vomp was typical Austria: everything was closed, even the hotel bar. The hotel provided me with free beer and a leaflet from Hunger Hotline. I called the number, expecting counselling but got a burger and salad delivered to the hotel.
At 11.00 this morning I ambled down to Schwaz, a 23 minute stroll in a light drizzle. My quest was McDonalds, specifically the McCafe which would be a great concept if they could separate it from the hamburger operation. Nearby was a house completely covered in those exaggerated Christmas decorations which look ridiculous even in December. A large train track looped around the house and smaller ones were on the balcony. Well, just look at the photos.
