Volders

During our ski trip in Stubaital we took a day off [bad weather] and drove to Munich.  On our way we passed Volders and tried to visit St. Karl but it was closed and we just walked around a little and left.

I took a day off skiing and did a day trip to Innsbruck -  Thus  Stephan went backcountry skiing in Stubaital.  It was a nice warm day.  I parked very close to the center of town and walked for hours around and did some shopping.  the tragedy struck at the end of my trip when I got a speeding ticket!  I was speeding and I have no excuse.
