Why we like to travel!

View of the Dachstein mountain range and the Hallstatt glacier, near the village of Dachstein, Austria. The Dachstein massif is dominated by the Dachstein-Kalk, dating from Triassic times. Rock salt has been mined in this area for more than 2,500 years. The area is also of great interest to archaeologists and they continue to find new interesting artifacts there — maybe another frozen traveler from the past?
