A TRIP OF A LIFETIME....
The picture to the right is the inside of one of the beautiful churches in town. The service had just let out so we were fortunate enough to be able to go inside and take in the architecture and beauty of this very old building. Afterwards, we stopped for breakfast at a local restaurant for breakfast and enjoyed a bagel, lox and coffee before heading back.
I've skied a lot of places, but nothing compares to these magnificent mountains peaks. You see pictures but, you don't think anything can possibly be so awe-inspiring and then there your are standing there staring out at this vast landscape. After all the obstacles I had faced this last year, skiing the alps was the most liberating experience. It sent my soul soaring like nothing had up until this point. The second day of skiing we decided to take a route that took us over a few mountain peaks to a little town called Warth. Almost 7 hours later and some very sore legs we arrived at our destination. We were supposed to be able to take a 15 minute bus ride back to St. Anton but we quickly found out the road was closed. We ended up having a friend come and get us which was 2 hours each way around the mountain. While we waited we made the best of our time and sipped champagne and played games.
