Obergurgl - Austrian Apls - Tyrol
« on: January 04, 2013, 04:12:07 PM »
I am off skiing to Obergurgl with my wife, 22 year old son and his girlfriend. She has never been to the Alps, Mountains or skied before and I can't wait to introduce her to the magnificence of the Mountains! 

As I bounced about with excitement packing I said to my wife that I'd have to find some way of making a living in the hills.

'Maybe there will be an advert in the Obergurgl Post office for a part time Yeti' I joked.  Her reply was harsh bit true. Without looking up from packing she said -

'Well your back is hairy enough'.

Ouch. Truth hurts.
