Wanderings, travel, photographs and skiing…

Starting the last ski trip of the 2005/2006 ski season….

By on March 3, 2006 in Austria, UK

Last trip of the 2005/2006 ski season; this time I am going to Saalbach in Austria.

The first part of the journey was by train to London with GNER.

Now, Alanis Morissette has a track on her album Jagged Little Pill called Ironic.  The only thing that is ironic about the track is none of the things she is singing about as being ironic are in fact ironic (maybe that is the irony of the track?).  Anyway, I started my journey and the train was delayed due to snow!  Now, in my book that is ironic!

Strangely for the UK that is the second time this season that I have had the start to my ski trip delayed due to snow.  In December we almost missed the ferry to France due to heavy (the word heavy is being used here in a UK context) snow (i.e. a couple of inches – see earlier post in Kent).  Hopefully, this initial delay is a good omen and mean we are going to have cold but good skiing, conditions in Austria.  I do hope it is not an omen that I am going to do my leg (or some other part of my body) again!
