Just trying to add some images!

Jet Lagged!

We have finally made it home after what seemed like the longest flight ever! We got home yesterday after leaving Austria on Friday morning, it was soooo good to get home after sitting on aircraft and in airports for the last couple of days! Although it was all worth it as we had the most amazing holiday. It was everything I had hoped for plus more. We started in Germany where we visited a beautiful old town called Rothenburg, from there we headed to Munich for a bit of beer and pretzels (yes Selina I tried a pretzel and a few too many German Beers!). We were at the Oktoberfest for opening day, which was crazy to say the least. We managed to find an awesome outdoor tent to spend the day in and I managed to consume 3L of beer, I thought that was an exceptional effort considering I don't really drink much beer anymore. It was helped by consuming greasy chicken and pretzels which normally wouldn't be a good thing but it made me cope with all the alcohol better,next day we spent exploring Munich and went out to Dachau the concentration camp which was quite sad and a real eye opener. From Munich we headed to Austria, first stop was insbrook which is a beautiful town, I imagine it is even more spectacular in the ski season. Then we headed to Salzburg where we picked up our hire car. Cam was the dedicated driver as I wasn't quite brave enough to face the autobahn driving a manual on the wrong side of the road. Cam did an awesome effort and stopped looking terrified after about an hour of so. We got to explore the Salzgamergut region which is spectacular and I also got to find the little village that my Dad is from so it was a very special trip. After a few days exploring we flew to London and got to catch up with some friends for some more beers before flying out. So as you can imagine I am feeling a little bit tired and a bit larger than when I left, but in saying that it was all worth it. So anyway today was the day to stop eating strudel and drinking beer and I am back on track! I started of with a power walk up my favourite hill this morning and will hit the weights tomorrow. So anyway that's my little bit of excitement, will try and attach some pics. (sorry about the spelling and grammer can't seem to insert text!)
Have fun! Luv Hilds

Nearly Holiday time!!!!

Only one week to go and I'll be heading over to Germany! I can't wait it is going to be so exciting I will finally get to see Austria and see where all the relies come from. So today and tomorrow are my last days at home before we fly out so I am madly trying to get organised, its funny how you always seem to leave everything until the last minute. I'm just hoping that we can get on the flights as everything is very busy at the moment and we are on standby. The goal is to be in Munich for the opening of the Oktoberfest. Not sure how I'm going to handle all of those sausages and beer (I'll be doing some hard core training when I get back!). I'm taking my hiking shoes so hopefully we will do lots of exploring while we are away and help work of some of those extra calories I will be consuming!!!!!! Other than holiday organising I have been pretty busy, we have had visitors for the last couple of weeks and I have also been going on lots of trips to Japan!!!! Only one more Japan trip to go and then 5 glorious weeks off, we are actually only going to be away for about 12 nights now, so I am looking forward to lots of walks, relaxing on the beach and catching up with friends during the rest of my holidays. We might even head to Adelaide for a few days as the families all want to catch up and celebrate our engagement. So that's it from me, hopefully next time I post it will be with lots of pics from our travels (as long as we get there that is!).
Hope everyone is well.
Luv Hilds
