Time has absolutely flown since my last blog post! If you have been following along on our adventures and whereabouts via our social media, you already know we are still making the most of our time in the Austrian Alps. We’ve spent the past few months travelling in Austria, getting the van fixed and ready for another year of travels, all whilst catching up and spending time with our friends in Austria, who have really become family over the past year or so.
We have just enjoyed our second Christmas and new year in Kitzbühel Alps. We have been enjoying winter to the fullest, trying to jam pack as many winter activities in that we can! We’ve had days out hiking, tobogganing, ski touring and snowboarding. We’ve had an absolute ball! For anyone heading to Austria, it’s a must do experience to venture out to a toboggan track. Not for the faint hearted, but I assure you, it is just too much fun, even as a 30-year-old adult! I see the kids come screaming down the mountain, giggling and have the time of their life and I can just imagine what it must be like having this at your door step growing up! I bet many good memories are made here, I know we’ve made our far share!
We are currently making plans to hit the road in the next few weeks, back to Norway we go! It’s time to get back to work for a bit to fund the next of our adventures! We are keen and hopeful to make our way back to beautiful Northern Norway. The Arctic in winter is spectacular and we can’t wait for the pastel sunrises and sunsets and of course the magic of the northern lights!
Unfortunately, the world is still a mess with the current surge of omicron COVID-19 cases, so its again a tricky time to travel. Careful planning and constant checking of updates will hopefully make the process run smoothly, even if we have to change our initial plans. We hoped to travel back through Sweden to explore more of the country, on our way to the North of Norway, but COVID travel restrictions in Sweden are looking to make it a little difficult with timing and organising PCR tests. So plan B is to go via Denmark. I’m sure we will figure it out, by now, for us travelling under restrictions seems normal, which is pretty scary!
Wish us luck on our trip back to the Arctic!
