Feeling the Italian vibes in Verona

It’s been a full on last week for us. So apologies for the delay in sharing my latest musings and adventures with you. Last Wednesday we left our gorgeous apartment in Riva del Garda for our drive to Milan. After the frustration of being unable to find either real gelato or pizza or pasta anywhere…

Riva del Garda – Dead in Feb

After our very long car ride we decided to have a car-free day. It had been an early start, so once Evie had napped we headed out for coffee. We hadn’t had much use for our pram in the last few places we’d stayed (except as a snow gear carting device) but today we found…

The very long journey to Riva del Garda

We had to leave Krimml and Andy and Steph. It was sad. We didn’t want to go. So we delayed it a bit longer to clean the house, put out the garbage and to have one more coffee at the slopes. That was a BIG mistake. We finally got on the road at midday for…

Clear days and cold brews in Krimml

The day had dawned clear and sunny, and this meant no more snow for us. As there was no more snow forecast it meant that the boys could dig our car out. Better still, they were able to get it up the hill by our house. The plan was made for the girls to take…

Snowed in, in Krimml, Austria

On the road again, our next destination was Krimml, Austria. Krimml is located within the Zillertal Arena, the largest ski area in Austria. There are over 26km of ski and snow board runs here. The journey from Zell am See was projected to take 55 minutes. OF COURSE we were operating on small children time…

Chilling, Coffees and cracking ice in Zell am See

Excuse the radio silence for the past week we have been without wifi. It was time for a break day. Craig headed out to drop back his snow board and Thea’s rented skis. Evie, Thea and I chilled at home for the morning before heading out when Craig returned to the Meet and Relax Cafe…

Logistical slope days at Zell am See

We arrived in Zell am See a little after lunch last Saturday. Thankfully our accommodation was ready for us at 2pm. So after getting some lunch at a little discount mall near the Aerit Express (a ski lift here) and a front pack nap for Evie we headed to our new house for the week….

Hilly wanderings and road mazes – Bad Gastein

The morning dawned sunny and coated in a fresh sprinkling of snow in Bad Gastein. The decision was made that Thea and Craig would take the car and head to the ski field to try Thea’s new skis out. We also figured that Craig might be able to get a go on his skis in…

The first road trip

Long car rides. These were the thing I was looking forward to the least after the plane trip. Evie, our youngest from as early as 5 weeks would SCREAM and cry hysterically on any car ride longer than about 20 minutes. I figured it was probably reflux. Since we live in such a walk-able part…

Krapfen, Crap sleep and the Zoo – Munich Part 2

We were very excited to see a fresh dusting of snow on the rooftops when we woke up on Monday morning. The girls were both up early, so we popped on our warm gear and walked to the local bakery. Thea was extremely pleased to find a special kinder (kids) table there, where she enjoyed…
