Back home

We arrivedyesterday evening back home, so now I have internet acces where I can upload pictures. The chalet we rented was great but we missed (OK, I missed) an internet connection. As you can see, we had a great week. The weather was great, great snow so we all had a good time.

This is me on the longest Roddelbahn in Europe. It start around 2000 meters and you descend until the village of Bramberg. There the skibus brings you back to the parking at the Talstation where you took the gondola to the top. I can recommend this roddelbahn, the beginning is a bit steep, but then it is great fun and most of the course is situated on the sunsite of the moutain. The first picture is taken half way where there is a small bar where you can heat up with a hot cocholate with rum, before you further descend.

On thursday the weather was not so good, so we visited a local museum on the local wildlife and life in the Alps. And no, this is not a living cow next to son #3. It is part of the display at the museum.
The next picture is at the Murmultiere. These are local animals that hibernate, but you can see their daily routine in the museum.

DH on the skies. He loves to ski.

Son #1 on skies, he is so proud of his first medal, he even sleeps with it. Great job Nic, we are very proud of you.
And offcourse all the stuffies of all our sons went with us. We always take a picture of them on our holidays. We started with only son #1´s on our first holiday, and continued the habit. So here they all are: sheep, bear and dragon/crocodil.

Son #2 is still too small to start ski lessons, so he spent his time well as you can see with coloring, even on the skipiste.

So it is already over, I am glad that we all made it home safe, because yesterday we past quite some accidents on our way home, and since Germany has limited speed limits, they are most of teh time serious, especially when foreigners are envolved. We are not used to the speeds the Germans drive, so a miscalculation is easily done.
So we are already looking forward to next year.


  1. It looks like you all had a lovely time! I've never been ski-ing. I'll be sorting your fabrics out soon for the swap - would you mind me sending 3 or 4 smaller pieces that add up to 2 fat quarters or would you prefer two full sized pieces?

  2. wow! how we'd love some of that snow here in Victoria, Australia. We have been having record-breaking hot weather :( I think just looking at your pictures made me feel cooler tho.


Thanks for stopping by.
