Flying past the fjords of southern Norway on a flight from Denver to Munich.

On Sunday and Monday, Claudia and I traveled from Ridgway, Colorado to Mayrhofen, Austria! First a quick flight from Montrose to Denver, then a 10-hour overnight flight from Denver to Munich, and finally three train rides from Munich brought us to the town of Mayrhofen deep in the Zillertal valley in the Tyrol region of the Alps in Austria.

Our plan is to spend the next three months in Tyrol, skiing and snowboarding as much as possible! ⛷️ ❄️ 🏂 Two months of that time will be based in the Zillertal, bouncing around to three different apartments in three different villages here, and we also plan to visit some other valleys and ski areas in Tyrol at various points during our stay. Since our travels are typically summer trips involving lots of trekking and backpacking, this extended winter vacation is something quite new and exciting for us!

During our stay in Austria I am going to try to post a photo a day (Or maybe every other day? Or every third day? We'll see how that goes). I will also write more about our experiences here, why we decided to come here, why so long, and much more. Stay tuned!
