undefeated and unknowns

Hypo Tirol Volleyball swept their finals series against AICH/DOB and ended the (league) season undefeated at 26-0. While being undefeated is not a super duper major accomplishment in most of the regular season, not dropping a match and only dropping a single set in four matches to a worthy opponent most definitely is.

monday musings

It's been awhile since I've graced this little corner of the inter webs with my inner most musings. So much has happened in the last few weeks and even more will happen in the coming ones. I'm hoping "get warm and stay sunny" is Mother Nature's to-do list as we head into our last month in Innsbruck. Within hours of the above photo being taken, we were hit with dark skies and snow flakes. I can't keep up with this valley weather...

volleyball lately

Until very recently - as in, the last 5 days recently - Hypo volleyball hasn't been the most thrilling. The team easily swept the Quarterfinals in 3 of 5 matches, and had another long break until the start of the Semis.

vineman monte rio

So, I might be crazy... Our month of May is absolutely bananas already. We fly back to San Francisco on May 6th, head up to Healdsburg May 7th - 10th. Fly to Minnesota on May 12th. Fly out for our honeymoon on May 16th. Fly from our honeymoon to Chicago on May 24th. Fly back to the Bay Area on May 27th. And finally, considering I just submitted my registration (there's no going back now)... Head up to wine country again on May 30th for the VineMan Monte Rio Triathlon.

There is currently a British reality TV show being filmed here in Tirol - The Jump. The show features celebrities of all sorts - from Pussycat Doll to Olympic Athlete, and everything in between - and pits them against each other in alpine sports including skeleton, bobsled, snow crash, and more.

birthday trip - czech!

My mommy came over to visit for a few days short of two weeks. After an evening arrival into Munich and a quick snooze at a nearby hotel, we hopped in the car and headed for Prague.

on top of the world

Kiley and Cody visited us - twice - as part of their Tour de Europe. After 4 straight days of snow, the skies cleared, the sun shone, and we trekked up Nordkette to Hafelekar. It literally could not have been a more picture perfect day.

ice princess-ing

In their trip planning, Kiley and Cody created a Winter Wonderland Bucket List full of fun and festive to-dos while in the snowy and much more wintery land of Europe. Much to Cody's dismay, Kiley and I spied an ice skating rink in the center of town and beelined for the rental office.
