Soft Mobility, Car-Free Vacation in Werfenweng near Salzburg, Austria Eco Tourism

With Summer officially here, I thought it would be time to look for some decent Eco-Tourism options.

Are smaller countries usually better practitioners?

I don't know if there's any study of proof of it?

I did find one that is proud of its green credentials and trumpets them.

The Official Guide to Travel in Austria shares a few attractive options.

Ready for a Car-Free Vacation, Werfenweng on an Alpine plateau, near Salzburg allows you to do so with its Samo (Soft Mobility) program.


You can reach the town by train.

If you drove, once you get there you will have to hand your keys to the Tourist Office.

You are given a pass that allows you in the Summer to go places thanks to a range of options from bikes and electric vehicles to car sharing options...

You could say that Werfenweng has aligned its scenery and its transportation.

Austria's Tourist Office shares more Green Austria picks.

For example Naturidyll Hotels in Austria and South Tyrol (Alto Adige, Italy).

I like the relaxed feel of their 'splendor in the grass' imagery.

I am sticking with my battered Blackberry Curve. It could use a makeover or a hiding case even though it works. For that I will check Otterbox cases stand. At least I am getting my phone sanitized as...

Shaped like An Ear of Corn, Bouyguette Goat Cheese from Carmaux, Tarn

Jun 22
I lived in the Tarn for a year or two and don't remember ever spreading any Bouyguette on a slice of bread. First time I ever read about it was via Culture where someone got one as a treat and shared the pleasurable experience. The fromage is one of the offerings from Segalafrom in Carmaux. You can trace its roots to the family Etevenon's moving in 1978 to a farm named "La colline aux chèvres"...
