On Tuesday we drove from our little hotel in Faistenau, through the alps and mountain passes across the country to Lienz. We took the scenic route through all the little towns, past little water falls and up roads which look like they were only ever intended to be used by horses.

Dave and I then team tagged skiing and looking after Samatha. I spent the last 1 and 1/2 hours with Alex skiing. We had a great time and did some great ski runs (some harder than I expected).
