1. Halstatt is home to the world’s oldest salt mine, dating back to prehistoric times. Archaeological finds are dated between 1200 bc and 500 bc! It’s oooooold.
2. The small market community Hallstatt has 778 inhabitants, is located on the western shore of Lake Hallstatt and is nestled into the side of a mountain.
3. The history of salt mining in the town gave its name to the Hallstatt Age (800 to 450 BC). The term Hal (salt) dates back to the Celts (bonus fact salt in Welsh is Halen! Yay Celts!)
Hopping over to Europe for today’s colourway trip! Gorgeous chalet style house’s on a mountain side? Surrounded by greenery and a late? Sign me up.
Very earthy natural colours for this colourway embodying the gorgeous tones in the houses on a hill. Rusty red browns and mossy green with hints of grey. Gorgeous.
Scroll to see the square as usual. Similar tones as in the Mount Everest colourway, these two are lovely side by side!
Where will we be jetting off next!?
