Watching the sun rise at 6am and transform the sky into a shimmer of pink and mauve. A view of snow-covered peaks in the winter, and sheltered inside a mountain cabin with a wool blanket and a warm red wine with cinnamon. Friends from Norway would describe this cosy scene as hygge. Later venturing outside with two planks of wood and hurtling down a 45-degree slope, hoping not to break anything before I reach the bottom of the slope. This is the country of opera, Mozart and a haven for culture vultures. This is a simple and easy meal from Austria.
