Austria 11 June: Velden - Klagenfurt

Summertime at the Wörthersee

Welcome to Austria! The Peace Run arrived in Carinthia...

...our first meeting: the "International School Carinthia" - ISC!

...the kids awaited us on the school-yard...

...for all teachers: never cheat in the country guessing game! The penalty is severe...

...the kids gave us big smiles...

...a dynamic run up and down the school-yard....

Mr. Brightman, the principal and a good old friend of the Peace Run...

Thank you ISC for the great meeting!

We continued our Run around the "Wörthersee", Carinthia's largest lake...

...and we arrived in Lind ob Velden. Children from the primary school awaited us...

..a colorful welcome....

Half of the school was on excursion, but we had great fun with the younger ones...

Peace can be felt in the heart...

...what's going on here?

...after the passing of the torch the kids led us around the school. Thay had so much energy! We had to run 3 - times around!

Thank you Lind for the enthusiastic welcome!

The clear water of the Wörthersee was inviting us for a refreshing swim...

...arriving in Reifnitz....

Children from the Kindergarten and the primary school Reifnitz lined up for "High Five"...

We asked the kids to lead us around the school for a symbolic Run. It developed into a serious enterprise...

...we explored the surrounding forest...

...and the whole neighbourhood...

...back at the school the kids asked questions about the Peace Run and the torch...

...and a final group picture. Thank you Reifnitz for the inspiring meeting!
