This is weird, the German keyboard has changed over the 'z' and the 'y' - so my typing skills are tested.
I am here at the base of the Kanzelwandbahn - ie, one feckin' big hill! Been up and down in the gondola - fighting vertigo all the way up and all the way down! Found a fab shop 'crystal ground' that sells clothing, skis plus the most lush coffee and has internet!
I've decided I am not a skiier, I am a born spectator.
Let me be clear here - I don't actually know if I am any good at it (although the instructors said I started well!) - I literally did not like the feel of the skis under my feet. I spent most of the first day in tears and at the end turned my skis in. After that I am politely asked each day if I want to put my skis on and I equally politely refuse! :-)
It's taken me three days just to learn how to walk on snow! I have fallen three times; I have twisted my ankle, ricked my neck, gained various bruises and cracked my back (the latter this morning!!
We're off to find the swimming pool and sauna tonight. I haven't decided if the lads are ready for CQ in a swimming cossie!! Tomorrow we're eating out although the food in the lodge is excellent.
All for now - 8 minutes of my half hour left and I need to check my emails!
