the (wohnwagon) community for independent autarkic life in gutenstein + myrafÀlle waterfalls, AT

the title says it all? nope 😇 

i've spent a nice day with a friend at the myrafĂ€lle waterfalls and could visit the (wohnwagon) community for independent autarkic life in gutenstein niederösterreich (lower austria) ~ AT, but there is much more to say, my dears 😍

manufacture for modern autarkic semi-mobile homes by

this community is not only about the production of mobile homes. they have many other environment saving products, their own vegetables, many other regional products and most important, they have a dream and ideas & approaches how to make this world a better place. just visit their homepage (as for now supported in german and english language) and learn how could you participate / invest / get an idea / purchase / get some inspiration concerning the topics covered (autarkes leben) ==>

and now, just enjoy few pictures taken in the beautiful gutensteiner alpen approximately 1 hour south of vienna by car, at the myrafĂ€lle waterfalls in muggendorf and the areas of pernitz, rohr im gebirge, gutenstein, mariahilfberg, schneeberg 2076m, servitten abbey (servittenkloster), ...

lake rachelsee + strange beings in lower bavaria

we are quite often in lower bavaria, you know? in june, i hiked to the top of the grosser rachel mountain (1,453m above sea level) in the NP bavarian forest (aka bayerischer wald, böhmerwald, sumava). unfortunately, i could not see the lake rachelsee. why not? well, the lake was from the opposite site of the mountain as my parked car and i did not have had time (and neither the power) for and additional walk for 1 hour to the lake and next hour back .... this time i knew better from which site to access the gr. rachel area 😃

in the uckermark, they have ostriches + kangaroos, but in the bavarian forests there are strange beings too, my dears! deer, ferrets, galloways and other cows, koi carps, humans, unicorns, ducks ... much nicer and much more interesting than a zoo, wouldn't you say?

all in one ~ lake rachelsee + grosser rachel
enjoy few pictures:
moo, ecological apples consuming lawnmowers in voglöd 😄
koi carps
hello ms. ferret 😉
moo again, ms. galloway
think global, act local. we have visited the nearby garnecker galloways ranch in reut (+ shop + beer garden) with friends and learned a lot about the upsides and downsides of small local alpine animal farming by talking to the owner.
humans + unicorns   &&   humans + cows
good-bye, galloways ranch
the ferienhof gruber in voglöd have probabaly seen better times before ....

bavarian forest is a rainy place, you know?
