A little while ago – and for the first time in my seven years in Innsbruck – I bought a Freizeit ticket. This ticket costs €488 and provides you with unlimited use of the mountain lifts (among other things) around the city of Innsbruck. Suffice to say, it’s a rip-off – considering it used to cost approximately €500 for a 4-member family 10 years ago.
Anyway, winters in the Alps are much different from the Mediterranean area down south. The snow covers everything like a white vale and landscapes tend to be much more calmer and contrast-y. Especially with a blue sky. Unfortunately that day, the only blue was on my blue jeans.
