Just a little update. We took two days and drove to Austria (it takes about 9 hours). We arrived at this very family friendly hotel we´ve been coming to for a few years and I promptly felt ill. Really sick. The kids would go out skiing every day and I would stay in bed and sleep. On Monday, I got up the energy to go to the doctor´s office in town. I had a sinus infection. After antibiotics for a day, I finally emerged from the hotel room.

On the day I started taking my medicine, my husband took my son out for a night of toboganning. My husband ended up flipping over and his knee, already bad, got twisted. So I finally got well and now my husband can´t ski. I hit the slopes yesterday and it felt great to be outside. The ski conditions are wonderful here. Lots of snow. Not too cold. I´m sorry you can´t be here too. My daughter is even skiing this year.

I will give a full report with pictures when I´m back.

I am so sorry to hear about the sinus infection. I had mine a few weeks ago and it really knocked me on my butt. But, I am glad to hear that you have been able to do some skiing.

Looking forward to seeing the pictures when you get back.

As you might have heard, we had our fair share of snow here in Paris. Unfortunately, there was no place to go skiing.

Glad to read you're feeling better and hope your husband heals ok. Hope the rest of the ski week passes w/o a hitch. Terry in SF

Er, at least this will be a vacation you'll never forget! :/

Hope everyone's recovering quickly. :)

How disappointing!

At least, you and hubby are trading off -- and the kids get to enjoy themselves.

Oh no - how terrible about you and now your husband. Speedy recovery to all and enjoy the rest of your trip!

The whole of Europe seems to be hit by this horrible cold. I completely sympathise on the sinuses as I was hit this week too. But poor you getting this on your vacation. Hope you enjoy what's left of the glorious snow!
