After the exhausting seminar throughout Germany, I took a week trip to the Austrian Alps with ten other fellows. The week turned out to be a total blast with a blizzard where everyone was snowed in, cross-country skiing through beautiful scenery, ridiculously tasty spring water and alpine milk, and a final night of Rodelbahn on a 3km track (sledding).
Day 1, January 22, 2012
Arrival in Sankt Martin am Lammertal and at our vacation house, Göglgut. I kid you not, our house had a name and everyone in the village exactly which house it was when we said we were staying at "Göglgut." If you ever want to take a trip to the alps that is good for beginning and advanced skiiers (or hikers in the summer) I highly recommend renting this house and a few cars, because there are beginning slopes within walking distance of this house and more advanced slopes if you drive (or hike a little do back mountain skiing, like some of the more hardcore people in our group...).

Snowfall from the week before
Remember that concussion I got from ice last year? Yeah, this house actually warns you ahead of time!!
