Dad is back from his travels

Well he's back ... not even a strike by Lufthansa could stop him ! Folk from his party were scattered around various airports in the UK but Dad flew back to Manchester and even managed to get back earlier than his original flight!

He's had a good couple of weeks ... apparently the first week was too hot the second week too cold ... there ain't pleasing some folks !

Austria trip

Well Dad sounds to be having a great time in Austria. Sound like he had better weather the first week. He got himself a bus/lift pass and has been making the most of it! He hops on a bus to the ski lift and then takes  the lift up the mountains and then has a walk back down and hops back on the bus back to the hotel. If he times it right he gets to have lunch at the top of the mountain ! That sounds my sort of "walking" :)

He usually manages to get back to the hotel in time to catch the end of the days cycling in the Tour of Spain ! I did tell him that the Tour of Britain has started but that's not being shown on  Eurosport so I have to text him the results.

He's now moved onto Saalbach and sounds like he's had a couple of wet days. He was going to hire another e-bike but the weather was a bit wet/cold so he gave it a miss. Again he's been using the buses/ski lifts to get up the mountains. Today he's been to Zell am See and on a steam train to visit a waterfall ! I was well jealous of the steam train until he told me it broke down ! 

He's been out and about in the evening too. He went to a music and dancing pub one night (I bet he moaned it was "too loud") and tonight he is going bowling - that I would love to see !

Just one full day left tomorrow as he's back home on Wednesday !
