Arriving in Innsbruck

First view of the mountains!

Finally in Innsbruck!

Matt goofing around in the hotel room

Matt and I decided to make the best of this four day weekend and head to Innsbruck, Austria. Though I skied once when I was six, I haven't been since. Now, I get to learn how to ski in the Alps!

The drive in was gorgeous! I took a million pictures, but they just don't do it justice. The mountains are...well, there are no words to describe it.

I kept seeing green hills in front of the snowy mountains and it reminded me of the opening scene from the Sound of Music. Matt and I were singing songs from the film on the way in, ha!

Right outside of the Austrian border, we stopped at an American diner for lunch. It was adorable! They had American sports and music memorabilia everywhere. And American food! Basically burgers and fries. Matthew ordered a turkey burger with fries, and I got tomaten zuppa (tomato soup).

That's another thing. The Coles have been working on their German. We spoke only German at the restaurant (to the waiter). A pretty big step!

Matt gets a little awkward with it. It's quite hilarious to watch.

Well, we are getting ready for dinner so ta ta for now!
