So what’s the most uplifting thing we saw today? So much to choose from: cows, a pigeon, sheep, a lovely young lady on her bike taking her pony for a walk? The thirteenth straight day of fine cycling weather? Maybe seeing a Bixnmacherie, which of course we all know is a Bavarian ritual to shower the parents of a Bixn (newborn girl) with canned goods in sympathy for having another mouth to feed.
Any one would be more than enough to bring a smile to your face; but nothing quite matched the serendipity of seeing a friendly face bike up while we were stopped for lunch on our way to Salzburg.
