Home Again -For now!

Standard

Arrived home from Awesome Austria yesterday after a fantastic week of Sun, scenery and sore feet! This was not before an evening on our balcony, glass in hand, iPad at the ready in search of a further week or two back in Austria in the Autumn! This probably won’t happen as we have other plans but you have to dream!( I do, a lot!)

It was lovely to catch up with family and our loveable Lab Benji. He has now forgiven us for going on holiday without him provided he can go away in our camper soon!

Gorgeous Grandson had done a great job of dog caring.

Not much crafting to report on I’m afraid. There are great plans afoot on that subject. I will tell you all my plans when I know what they are.

No Wordsmith Wednesday due to holidays but normal service will be resumed next week.

Awesome Austria Day Six

Standard

Today we walked hobbled around the Zillar Valley in Austria. I would take a pic of my toes but they are far too grusome for publication! My other excuse is that thirty plus degrees is far to hot for hiking anyway!

We travelled up on the single chair lift at Hippach Ramsau. This is the best lift ever! You just glide up the mountain accompanied only by bird song and a gentle breeze. Sadly it is closing after this year due to high maintenance costs. I Signed the save Ramsau lift petition and will do the same on Facebook.

We stopped at the obligatory cafe at the top of the lift for some refreshment OK beer! I waved Hubs off as he walked into the mountains not to be seen again for several hours. I made my way slowly back to the hotel, avoiding all shopping opportunities. Well it was Sunday, and all or most shops were closed, so I saved a fortune. I enjoyed a swim in the pool ( that didnt hurt feet) and sunbathed in the garden. Bliss!
