Oh No. This is so not me !!!!

My wife and I are just back from a holiday in Austria where we had hoped to relax and do a bit of gentle walking.

For the first few days we stayed in Kitzbuhel. In winter it is a top ski resort but we thought in summer it may be a bit quieter. How wrong could we be?

Our visit coincided with the annual Harley Davidson meet and Rock Fest. The centre was crowded with hundreds of these magnificent machines. Very colourful, as were their riders.

We ventured down again in the evening and when I was still a couple of hundred yards from the centre I could hear the thud,thud,thud of music. A stage had been set up and a rock band were performing.

Somehow I ended up in front of the stage. The decibel level was off the scale. What was I doing here?.This was so not me. I could feel the music vibrating through the soles of my feet and thudding in my chest.

But then, I began to enjoy it. The lighting effects were fantastic.

I felt like a teenager again. I could rock around the clock tonight. ( Anyone remember Bill Haley and the Comets from the late 50’s? )

But that was only in my mind. My body was telling me otherwise. It had been an early start to the day and I had now been on my feet for almost 20 hours. Time for bed !

It had been an amazing day with a marvellous atmosphere.

My aim is to create a photo diary of my walks and my travels. I have two main hobbies, walking and photography and these complement each other. I am a senior citizen, what used to be called an old age pensioner, but I don't feel old. Since retirement I have had more time to pursue my hobbies and the opportunity to travel more. My philosophy now is - Do what you can, while you can. My other interests are fine wines and keeping fit. These may not complement each other but keep me happy.
