On the Road and In Your Backyard

Good Morning All,

It’s Friday and it’s otmar. Enough said!

Have a wonderful day, and enjoy the pictures!


Today, pictures from valued commenter otmar.

I’ve been negligent with regards to posting updates from life on the road in Europe. So here are some recent pictures.

This set is from our yearly week of skiing in Carinthia.

We were really lucky with the snow and weather this year. 4 days of perfect conditions is more than you can expect.

This is the view from the Gerlitzen towards south-east. The river is the Drau, the long, narrow lake is the Wörthersee.

Looking south-west, you can see Villach.

The mountain ranges you can see are first the Karawanken and behind that is Slovenia with the Triglav massif.

Klagenfurt is the state capital of Carinthia. This here is the of the old town square.

This is the official seat of the Carinthia’s government. (see https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Landhaus_Klagenfurt)

I think I shared a picture of Schloss Rosegg before. They seem to have cut down a number of trees recently, leading to a clear view to the building.


Thank you so much otmar, do send us more when you can.

    Beautiful! Between today’s and yesterday’s photos, I’ve decided photos are the best way to experience winter.
