It is a known fact, (based upon years of empirical evidence), that you will be ridiculously happy if you visit the Austrian Tyrol.
Moreover, visit any region referred to as “Tyrolean” or part of the “Tyrol,” and you will suddenly feel an overwhelming sense of calm, wellbeing and rightness with the world. The word “Tyrol” is synonymous with resplendent geography, enchanting architecture and a great quality of life. It also goes without saying that the hiking is heavenly and the food is beyond reproach.
Need proof of the happiness? Here’s some:
