Innsbruck – Day II – Christmas day

After having recovered from the previous evening we have a light breakfast and are picked up by James and Liesa who drive us to Achensee where we had coffee. We then drive on to Sixenhof Museum where we see a “live” telling of the Christmas story with donkey, ox and sheep. When we come back outside it is snowing on Christmas day.

Innsbruck – Day I

We have settled into our apartment and after breakfast we have a look round in Innsbruck. While there is no snow in the city , the mountains around Innsbruck are white.

We meet James and Liesa and visit a museum with local arts and crafts. We are then collected later by James and meet Liesa’s parents Karl and Silvia for the first time in their hut. They could not have been more hospitable and have laid on a wonderful spread of food and drinks. While we have tried to make a large dent into all this we are defeated by 1am and go back to our apartment stuffed and well inebriated.

Flying to Innsbruck

Not much to tell apart from us flying to Innsbruck with Easyjet from Tegel. A rather grey and cloudy day in Innsbruck where James is awaiting us. Starting to rain and always amazed how pilots can land in such bad visibility.

Berlin – Day I

We’re off to Berlin and are visiting Susanna and Luka in their new flat. Leaving work early we drive to Gatwick to catch the Easyjet flight to Tegel. We arrive at 21:00 and take a taxi to the Hotel “Hansablick” which is just around the corner. We then have coffee and wine with Susanna.

ADC Theatre – The Wind In The Willows

We are again going to the ADC theatre and tonight we are seeing “The Wind In The Willows” by Kenneth Grahame.

Alan Bennett’s timeless adaptation of Kenneth Grahame’s beautiful story of Ratty, Mole, Badger and of course Toad of Toad Hall which was a delightful performance by BAWDS.
