How We Used To Ski

DSC05197

Another wet miserable day. I play fallout 4 until I’m bored. Yes it is getting a tab reparative.

I have more sausage and bacon and consider what to do with my life.

I open some more old stuff and look at real photos and consider putting them on flickr.

And so I start.

Here is the first Ski holiday I went on. This is a day trip to Innsbruck when we went with a Wolverhampton University trip (back then Wolverhampton Polytechnic) run by a man called Ron. We actually went to Obergurgl in Austria and my parents booked some spare seats on the holiday coach with a load of students. Ron drove the coach all the way. I can recall the students going and not having ski gear! Opps its cold out there!

So this is the resort. Now a really fancy place to go and somewhere unaffordable!

A few years later we return with Rod. And nicer coach!

A few more years later we return we Maderson Travel & Rod.

And a few years latter we return again.

I can tell because of the changes in jacket. What is missing though are the photos of when we didn’t go to Obergurgl and went to Hintersodder once, this was the first time we flew on holiday! I will have to search for them.

And in 1991 we go across the Atlantic.

I watch another dire Danny Dyer film, boy he has made a few!

And then hope for something better by watching the DVD Alan has given me of a classic Dr Who.

Something about Robots that aren't going to kill you.

And with that I go to bed and dream about robots that aren't going to kill me.
