Gailtal Valley (Part 1)

 Gailtal Valley (Part 1)   

The Gailtal is a valley that runs through East Tyrol and Carinthia in the south of Austria. The Gailtal was named after the river Gail, which can be found at the base of the valley. Note that "geil" is pronounced the same way and means "horny" or "hot" - an eternal source of bad jokes at the cost of the Gailtal and its residents. The starting point of the Horny Valley is generally assumed to be at Tillach in East Tyrol; it ends at Carinthian Villach, where the Gail flows into the river Drau at Maria Gail ("Horny Mary" - you see where this is taking German speakers with a soft spot for middle school boy sense of humor).
