So funny story! It turns out that the little red and white flags on the tree stumps Austria are not in fact their version of the Swiss Yellow Wanderweg that I thought. But in fact both Switzerland and Austria use the same system of grading hikes – and that little red and white stripe actually refers to difficult hikes! Thank goodness I’ve never mistaken the blue and white stripe ones in Zug as those usually refer to “glacier” style hikes!

The hiking signs in Switzerland that Liam and the girls followed when hiking in Andermatt the same weekend!
