Travel to Zell am See and my first glance at the Alps
This morning was an early one! Our train left at 6:56 this morning and it was a five hour ride. The train ride was gorgeous as a lot of it was through the Alps. After the train ride we took a short bus ride to the lodge where we got all of our skis, poles, helmets, and ski boots. It was about this time that I realized that showing up to a ski week without snow pants and goggles probably wasn’t my greatest idea ever. Whoops. After getting all of our things we took a ski lift up the mountain to where we would be staying. The lodge is so high up that it was in the clouds when we arrived. It’s incredible how high we can get in the mountains to be able to ski around. I’m definitely nervous for tomorrows first ski lesson! I can’t wait to see how long it takes for me to fall and not be able to get back up.
Today also brought me the first wifi of the trip. I was definitely happy to be able to talk to friends and family for the first time since arriving.
I’m definitely still jetlagged from the flight over and am looking forward to getting some much needed sleep before spending the next six days skiing the Alps!
