Another one from the Vaults: Postcards from Seefeld II

I’ve decided that once a week I’ll re-post something from my extensive archives. Obviously many of my early posts 2009 – 2012 heavily feature cycling. I’ll try to keep these to a minimum as I know not everyone is a cycling fan. This one’s… Continue Reading “Another one from the Vaults: Postcards from Seefeld II”

For Carol Anne: Wintery scene of snowy landscape in Seefeld, Austria

12 days of Christmas: day 12

I obviously had to choose a wintery scene from last year’s Christmas spent in Seefeld, Austria. This picture shows cross-county skiers swooping down from the golf course and across the Attersee, on the other side from Wildmoos Alm.

Largely, I should add, prompted by Facebook constantly throwing up photographic memories of last year’s trip. I had said I wouldn’t do a “where were… Continue Reading “Thanks for the memories”

We’ve stayed in a number of hotels and apartments in the area but… Continue Reading “40 years of Memorable Moments: InterAlpen Hotel, Tirol”

Postcard from Seefeld: back where we first started

I first learnt to ski when I visited my French pen-friend who lived in Grenoble. The whole family were excellent skiers and, after they taught me how to do a snow plough, I just tagged along. Never having skied before, I didn’t have any… Continue Reading “Postcard from Seefeld: back where we first started”

12 days of Christmas: Day 12

It’s only appropriate that this picture was taken during our current winter vacation in Seefeld, Austria. This sums up everything I adore about cross-country skiing: blue sky, new snow, crisp empty tracks, at one with nature¬†– bliss! It just remains for me to wish… Continue Reading “12 days of Christmas: Day 12”
