All that Glitters Must be Swarovski

We visited the Swarovski Crystal World on this day, driving down from Schwangau where we’re currently homebased. The factory “outlet” has grown by half since I was there in July of 2007, with a brand new showroom adding to the space we saw last year. Bob and Marlene had a fun hour or so of shopping for family and themselves. On the way back, we stopped at a (gasp!) recommendation by famous author Rick Steves. Hey, I have got to give the guy credit. The place was great! Bob had a giant schnitzel which he said was excellent and Marlene had a trio of dumplings with various stuffings. The Gnadl Gasthaus is just outside the historic town of Hall, on the way from Wattens back in the direction of Innsbruck.
