Well Travelled Letter
It turns out that mail being sent to Australia instead of Austria is not so uncommon actually. I've received mail re-routed from Australia a few times already. What is unusual however is mail that is sent to Arizona instead of Austria (see image below). This is the one and only time I have ever seen this (from ~January 2006).
Try Austria again.
I thank the post office in Arizona for recognizing this error. I'm both surprised and impressed.
