Back From Holidays

Morning folks.

I know I haven't been around much lately but I do have a good excuse!!! We've been on our holidays for a much needed dose of lovely clean Austrian mountain air. After leaving hot summer weather here we arrived in record temperatures over there. Austria have had a brilliant summer too with record temperatures of 40oC!!! It was far too hot to be climbing mountains and thank goodness we had two lovely swimming pools to cool down in.

Here are just a few photos to give you a taste of how beautiful it is.

Beautiful Mayrhofen, where we stayed, in the heart of the Tyrol.

It's never too hot for shopping. Looking over Innsbruck before we hit the shops.

And after a lovely walk in the mountains a much need Apple Strudel and pint of Radler (a local beer and cloudy lemonade shandy). Bliss!

I now have crafty withdrawal symptoms and need to get inky again and I'm determined to blog much more regularly than I've been doing so I'll try and get round and see what you've all been up too just as as soon as I can.

Thanks for stopping by and it's lovely to be back.

Bet you had a fab time and Oooh! I'd be so jealous if it were not for the fact I'm off to Zell am See in September with my lovely fiance :)
