Mountain love

Every now and then I try to combine a good travel quote with one of my photos. Here’s a nice quote I found hanging on the wall of an alpine hut in the Austrian mountains.

Mountainaustria

Menschen, die in die Berge Wandern,
wiederspiegeln Sonnenlicht.
Jede, die im Tal geblieben,
verstehen ihre Sprache nicht.

Literally, it means: ‘People that walk in the mountains, reflect sunlight. Everyone that stays in the valley, doesn’t understand their language.’ I’m guessing that the deeper meaning behind it is, that you can’t really understand the joy of the mountains, until you leave the valley behind and go hiking. If there are any Austrians out there, correct me if I’m wrong!
