Innsbruck, part 3 - Pretty but Dangerous

Don't let the lack of snow on the slopes lull you into a false sense of security!
It's dangerous out there. Better pop into a cafe for that hot drink ...

Innsbruck, part 2 - Pretty but Underwhelmed

Innsbruck, with its views up to the mountains and colourful old buildings, is a lovely place to spend a sunny afternoon. Mark had been there before, but it was all new to Jen.

There was one disappointment, though. Jen got all excited about the prospect of a Golden Roof, but it really wasn't worth the hype. Could it please be renamed the Golden Verandah? The shiney tiles aren't even over an entire building - just a patio on one! Very underwhelmed.

Innsbruck, part 1 - Pretty but Creepy

The stunning church just outside Innsbruck ...

... has a collection of saints' bones, dressed up in jewels. This is St Catherine.

And these are the skulls of 42 more!

Up close, with headdresses. Creepy.
