Day 37: Zell am ZillerJuly 23rd, 2008
I don’t really like ski resort towns, but due to inclement weather, I had to stay a day in Zell am Ziller.
A ski resort town is essentially a lot of guesthouses, shops to buy or rent sporting gear, and places to booze up and eat. The end result is a bland, expensive town, with the picturesque mountains obscured by slightly too quaint guesthouses.
During a break in the rain, I went for a walk around. The town was just full of bored old people. I went back to camping and in a rush finished Anna Karenin for the second time. This was because the post office closed at 6PM and I wanted to send the weight away, along with some old maps and 2 pairs of socks which I inexplicably brought with me.
