Innsbruck

sunny 22 °C

We planned on staying one night in Innsbruck and then pushing on for the Romantic Road in Bavaria but as always the best laid plans can easily go astray. Firstly Brenton and Matt wanted to go down hill mountain bike touring so they organised a guide and some bikes and took off. P1040711.jpg Decided we liked it here so decided to stay another day. Matt convinced me to go down hill mountain bike riding with him so this time without the guide we set off for “thrill hill” . Must say it’s a bit off putting when your riding partner scoots ahead and stops just to see if you’re going to smash into a tree or go over the handle bars. P1010822

I managed to make it to the bottom a couple of times due to the little unknown fact that in my youth I was a BMX bandit. The only one who “ate dirt” was Matt. I didn’t laugh for that long when I saw him rolling down a hill, maybe two minutes maximum!
We were all set to head off again but this time the camper decided to get a bit steamed up and so after half an hour it was a return trip to the camp site. Back into the old town again. This time I couldn’t shake Brenton, he could smell a free feed and tagged along with us until we made for a Pizzeria. The food servings are huge and once again after devouring a massive cannoli filled with ham and cheese with a half litre of beer I have been wracked with guilt and have put myself on a diet.P1040708.jpg Soon there will be less of me to love….. there are a few skeptics in the camp alreadyP1040696.jpg
