    Gosh it looks so lovely, dark and Christmassy there - I LOVE it!!

    It's the glow of the lights in streets and shop windows against the gloom of the night sky, and how the snowy streets, trees and buildings sets all that off so picturesquely, that does it for me. Even though it no doubt feels bitterly cold being there, its somehow also 'cosy'. Especially when you're wrapped up in nice warm clothes!

    Dunno, if you know what I mean?

    That's one of the main reasons why we love Austria so much. The beautiful quaint and secluded little snow-capped mountain villages are simply wonderful!! You find some amazing little hotels, pubs and restaurants, that serve the most amazing food imaginable in places like that, which are miles off the beaten track and well away from the tourist trap. Getting away from it all like that is what we love to do.

    Did you have a good time in Helsinki?

    Not sure I want to be known as "Weird Steve"...

    Could be because I posted them differently. I didn't know how you made the thumbnails so I uploaded the images into a personal user album and pasted the URLs.

    Must work 'cos Marco has seen them.

    This was on the Austrian / Italian border in the Alps. Pretty treacherous in the snow on a bike, fully loaded for touring with Val. Then in the space of 5 minutes the cloud came down...





    ...and this was the descent. Efectively, done blind in the cloud fog. Clean knickers were needed
    Obviously I was a wee bit too occupied to take piccies at the time. If we'd known what we were facing, not sure we'd have attempted it. This photo was taken on a second run in the sun. Brilliant!

    Sorted - I think; I made the album private, which meant that only admin could see it. Sorry Marco, no special powers today.

    Is that OK now?

    To be more precise, I pasted the BB code directly into the main body of text. Is this a valid method? It's certainly easier than all that Imageshack malarky, which I struggle with to be honest and does limit the photos that I would otherwise post more often. Probably only works with the limited file sizes from my phone.

    Are you going to try posting your pics the way I said, Ali?

    Here's your earlier picture in all it's glory, adjusted via the wonders of Imageshack:





    Steve, awesome stuff there in Austria! Have you ever been around the Salzburg area, near Zell am See? It's utterly gorgeous there.
