ONE MONTH ON...
Monday March 4, 2019 - Email this article to a friend

PlanetSKI is currently based in Innsbruck, the capital of the Alps, for the winter. So, how's it been going so far?





It is exactly 4-weeks to the day since we moved in.

Our office and base until Spring is in the large pinky/orange one on the left by the river Inn:

We are suffering in silence as we go about PlanetSKI business.

Well, not quite.

So, what better way to celebrate than leaving the skis behind and being tourists for the day.

In one of the most historical and beautiful cities in the Alps.

Our adopted home: Innsbruck.

First stop the City Tower.

We walked up the 51 meters of the tower.

And paused for breath after 133 steps:

And the views from the top:

Then we just strolled round the old town soaking up the stunning architecture that dates back to the 14th Century.

If you want to wander round a medieval (ski) city then this is the place to do it.

The key thing is to keep an eye on the detail:

And the doorways.

We have skied pretty much every day since our arrival - 21 resorts in the Tirol most of whom we had never even heard of before.

But today was all about Innsbruck:

And tonight, after being tourists for the day, we walked across the ancient bridge over the river Inn to our home:

There really is no finer place to be at the precise moment in time.

Period.
