While Dave was on his holidays, my choice was for a day exploring, so we took off in the car and headed up to a place called Flattnitz. We’d started driving there last year but had to head home. It turned out to be a ski resort, with loads of walking, and we saw the church which we think must have once been a Burg.
However, the clouds were building and we didn’t think it safe to risk going up high. So we motored down through a luxuriant but boring valley in Carinthia (Karnten) until we came upon the town of Friesach. We spent the day exploring a Medieval town, complete with walls, Burg, towers, museums, market street. All part of Europe’s fascination with all things medieval, but what a nice chance day out!
