In Austria at last

Posted by Picasa

Well, we finally made it. We arrived in St. Wolfgang on the 3rd January, but had to go into B&B for a fortnight as our furniture hadn't arrived from the UK yet. It didn't actually arrive until the 17th so that's when we moved in. We have been in now for just over two weeks and everybody has been so helpful and friendly. We have just about sorted out all the paperwork necessary but the second bedroom looks like a tip as we haven't got around to sorting everything out yet. Still it will take time.

As you can see from the picture there is some snow about and it is quite cold, but it is lovely just the same. There is a town called Bad Ischl about 14km away and they have a small game shop. In England that would mean Boggle and Trivial Pursuit, but I bought The Pillars of the Earth there for £23 so that can't be bad. I might even get the wife to give me a game sometime.

I have been reading Green Dobbers the blog which Garry has started to track the games that they have been playing. It's the skiing season, so Richard is away quite a bit at the moment so they have been playing quite a few two player games. Have a look, it's at......

Anyway, that's all for now.......happy gaming!!!

Quite Cold??

Colin I am currentky in Banff in Canada - it was -32c in day time last week - I have no idea what the night time temp was - but the walk to the local pub was the most unpleasant experience I think I have ever had!!

Honestly you have no idea what cold is!!

Hope you and Tina are well.
