There’s a delicate moment at the beginning of every airline flight, especially when the cabin is full. It’s a moment when all the overheads have been stuffed full and somehow closed, the cell phones have been deactivated, the occupants of the aisle and middle seats have stood aside to let the window seat rider in, and everyone has settled down to the task of buckling seat belts and making their nest for the airborne hours ahead.
It’s that seminal moment in which you find yourself glancing around to the passenger beside you and making unexpected eye contact — a split second in which your fellow traveler makes the instinctive choice to either smile back silently or speak

You thought yodeling classes were for Japanese only? Well, you couldn’t be more wrong. Yodeling is a fun and healthy activity for everyone, young or old.
Or is mountain cheese more your cup of tea, so to speak? Then head for a Dairy and make your own cheese! What we are trying to tell you? That it’s never to late to learn a new trick and that Austria offers plenty of creative activities for your next summer holidays.
According to the dictionary to yodel means “to sing so that the voice fluctuates rapidly between the normal chest voice and a falsetto”. That’s the theory. If you wish to learn the art of making these high-low-high-low sounds and larynx acrobatics yourself, you best enroll in a Yodel Seminar offered within the “KultURlaub” workshop organized by the Imst-Gurgltal tourist board.
“If you can whoop, you can yodel”, says Norbert Hauer. “You only have to try”. Yodeling developed in the Alps as a method of communication between mountain peaks, and it later became a part of the traditional music of the region. Yodeling is the calling card of the Alps, the mirror of the soul and the epitome of joy for life. Yodeling is fun and this workshop is guaranteed to make you smile! Other classes offered include accordion playing and minor arts
