    Top man. It's not so much having to post them through Imageshack; merely that however you do it, that they don't appear as just thumbnails.

    Steve didn't use Imageshack, yet his pics have appeared 'full-size'

    Marco.

    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 these places like that 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 there in Helsinki?

    Marco.
    Helsinki is one of my favourite cities. It's comparatively small and compact for a capital, very refined, safe and friendly with about 300 excellent restaurants.
    I like cities with trams also, that seems to lend old world charm to even Milano!

    It was minus 3 degrees last week but you don't feel it with a few glasses of antifreeze inside Fur coat AND fur knickers is the key.

    We rode through Austria both ways and although pretty, we prefer the Italian side of the Alps, for all the reasons you mention - and then some!
    I will be eternally grateful to the Austrians for Gewurztraminer though.

    That's an Aol thing, dude. It happens to me, too, which is when I swap over to Internet Explorer, and the problem disappears

    Ok, keep the snowy pics coming, folks, particularly those taken when you're out and about - I wanna see some snowy roads and traffic jams!

    Way.....you used Imageshack! Not difficult is it, dude?

    You should delete the 'Uploaded with Imageshack' tag which appears as the second URL code you'll see when you paste the code from Imageshack into the reply box on the forum. I've done it for you this time.

    Snow-wise, it's madness where you are just now. I'm going up to Glasgow in a couple of weeks, so I hope the snow will have cleared by then - if not, I'll be going nowhere!
