Austria - Day 0

Saturday 8 July 2017 - Timperley to Zell am See

Richard's 9.30 am taxi saw us (me, Sue and Susan) speeding to the airport and being left rather bemused after dropping off my hold bag full of walking poles, ice axes and crampons, and getting through security before 10 am!

The easyJet flight (Airbus A320 with very thin and not that comfortable new seats) to Munich left an hour late, but our connections all worked fine.

There were a few showers, but generally fine weather, though it looks changeable. Lovely mountain scenery on the latter stages of the journey. 

Reached Zell am See at 20.15 as planned. Meet and greet service was provided by Cary, who despite setting off four days before the rest of us only just managed to reach the destination half an hour before us. At this rate he'll be a week behind by the time we finish. 

In that half hour Cary had managed to book a satisfactory restaurant, after which indulgence we got a taxi to Pension Milan, where we have a cheap (you pay for what you get) room for four with an excellent shower.

Despite Cary crocking himself on the edge of a bed, we are pretty much intact and ready for some exercise.

The photos are, as usual, in chronological harmony.
