We have spent the last 3 nights in the basement of LA House in Fussen which has been a good base and having access to internet has been a bonus. The basement room is huge and able to sleep 5 so it's been nice to spread out our junk and watch TV and sit on a proper lounge, although it's a bit cold at night.

We left reluctantly and headed off to Innsbruck to track down some summer snowboarding for the BOSS. After the taste she got on top of Jungfrau, she is keen to learn how to spend less time on her backside and more time upright. We arrived just after lunch to a completely deserted town - like something out of a Sci-Fi novel. Nothing was open except for the Information office with the worlds most efficient and helpful information officer in attendance. In 10 minutes we had organised a day of snowboarding for the BOSS, a day of motorcycling over the Brennerpass for me and our accommodation for the night.

With armfuls of brochures and maps, we checked into our hotel and decided what to do with the rest of the day. We headed off walking into town, not realising that today was the hottest day so far this year for Innsbruck and it didn't take long for us to start wilting. We spent an hour in the airconditioned Crystal Cave and then braved the heat to see the Golden roof and a few other unimpressive fountains and statues. As the heat had entirely sapped our enthusiasm for sightseeing, we went back to the hotel for a cold shower and a good lie down.
