Finally, I get to try the flagship of the Salt Yard Group, Salt Yard on Goodge Street.
I was in the area checking out furniture (I feel another blog topic forming up) and hadn’t actually had any lunch, but was in between meals – so appropriately, some tapas was just the right food to have.
I came across this site/blog via twitter. Have a read and see what you think!
I had a big shock walking out of the house last Sunday, the wind was warm not cold! Is spring really here? Well I decided to go out around my neighbourhood to find out. Though still windy the evidence that nature in London has decided that spring is here. So I decided that it was a good opportunity to test out my Olympus OM-D further. Hope I haven’t jinxed the arrival of spring!
After all the “musts” at Austrian Ski Resorts, I just have to say these are all really musts for one resort: Lech am Arlberg, Austria – pretty much the only resort to date that I enjoy the whole package of.
And by whole package I mean not just the skiing, but the hotels, the facilities and of course the food.
Now it wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t try out the tea time treats. For this first said venture we headed out to one of the famous landmarks in Lech, the Gasthof Post. And as we were blessed by sunny weather we decided to take our afternoon tea outside on the terrace. Tea always served in a pot with an hour glass timer, we also added a hot chocolate to help aid our cake eating.
So what other musts? Maybe I should concentrate a little on the skiing side of things. Well the first ski day in my case is usually devoted to doing the Weiße Ring – on this occasion I just managed to do as I had boot problems (yes always blame the equipment!) The second would be devoted to doing the Valluga run in St Anton. Then usually after I flake out and want to do some langlauf.
My question stems from my current status of travelling for a week’s skiing in Austria. In preparation I have been reminded of the different types of travel luggage that people have and how they pack them. Not just the main luggage but also in this case I would include anything that has the capability of storing things that you would like to bring when you travel.
Another foodie, this time just what I associate with going to an Austrian ski resort especially in the Vorarlberg region of Austria. I have a list of things I must do while here. Skiing the Weiße Ring – check(even with boot problems so I hope I can continue to ski tomorrow), eating a Wiener Schnitzel von kalb, a Kaiserschmarrn, and a Germknödel – three checks! This is day one, will fill you in as I go along.
