This should be interesting...

But it's not, really.
Sorry 'bout that. It doesn't take long for the daily grind to overtake one after a holiday, does it?!

The story of our trip is nowhere near ready although I have actually managed to start it. Meanwhile it turns out some people are feeling left out because they didn't get a present in my previous post, so...

Ben O, did you ever see the Olympic ski jump in Innsbruck, Austria?
That's what it looked like from our hotel room.

Or if you're looking for something interesting, how about these weird cube apartments in Rotterdam...

Lori, I'm feeling bad that you & Linda had to share, so you can choose a couple of eggs from this Easter Shop in Salzburg. But since you shared her chocolate fountain, you gotta get at least one for her too OK?
Those shops are amazing - they have Christmas Shops too, filled with loads of Christmas decorations & chocolates & stuff all year round but the photo I took of that didn't come out so well.

EKapa, I thought you could use one of these while your car is in for repairs - less chance of having to replace body panels in the event of freak accidents, hehe!
Yes, it's a tank at the D-Day memorial / museum at Omaha Beach in Normandy.

I also realised I didn't give Chitty anything, so this one's for you, darlin'...
Sunset over Lake Geneva, from a town called Montreaux. Why this one for you? Because if ever you were looking for a beautiful spot to take the gf to ask her if she wants to be your wife, this is it!
Personally, I intend to retire there.

Now I know that's not everyone but if I ever intend posting this thing I'm going to stop here. If there's anyone else who's feeling left out, let me know if you have any preferences and I'll do my best.
Jeff, I think I mentioned already that I was going to bring you one of the Concorde but we whizzed by it so quickly I didn't even have time to dig the camera out of it's pouch before it was gone, sorry buddy!

That is totally cool. I feel so special - I love skiing (even though I would be terrified of those jumps).

Thanks so much - Ben O.

If you knew how insanely jealous I am when I see those pictures... you'd be afraid. Very afraid.
Oh but you do know. Well? Why aren't you afraid? Hmpf.

It's the thought that counts, Terri. :)

Whoa, those apartment are really striking. And looking at the ski jump makes my stomach turn over.

What wonderful sights! Looks like you had a great time. :)

angel said...

it is indeed scary how quickly a holiday disappears into the fog of memory and dreams... very scary indeed!
i love those weird buildings!

Terri said...

Beads - 'Course she will, she luvsya :)

Lori - 2 or 3???! lol!!!

Ben O - Terrified schmerrified, I'm sure you'd do the jump without blinking, hehe...

Anne - I'm trembling in my boots, dear ;)

Chitty - Well that will make an interesting blog post for you eh?!

NMOTB - Thank you :)

Jeff - That's what I always say, yet strangely enough some people expect more than just a thought for, oh say, birthdays, Christmas etc. Go figure.
;)

Jason - There was indeed a lot to see on this trip. I'm sure you guys'll be sick of hearing about it long before I've finished telling the stories.

Angel - Yes it's difficult to imagine living in one of those, the look really odd from the outside!

Reluctant Nomad said...
