New Year’s Eve

We are having a small party tonight (11 people) and each one is bringing a dish. We spent the evening talking, drinking and playing games and are surprised that it is already close to midnight. We wish all our friends and family a very happy, healthy and prosperous New Year.

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.
