Day 76

Finish:  Innsbruck 

Distance:  0

Total:  1162

Today was a day off, and I needed it. I’m a day ahead of schedule which means I pounded the pavement for the last couple of days to get ahead. It’s nice to just kick back and take a break. 

I had a couple of errands I needed to take care of; one was to do laundry in a real washing machine. Luckily there was a place a couple of blocks from the hotel called The Blue Bubbles Laundromat. This is the first time I’ve been to a do-it-yourself laundry in many years. Seems things have changed since my last visit. I went in there with a pocket full of coins, but you don’t put the coins into the slots on the washer and dryer like you use to. Now it’s all centrally controlled from a touch screen. Luckily there was an attendant there and with a quick tutorial I was in business. 

After the laundry chore was taken care of, I was off to find a new lightning cord to charge my iPhone and iPad. My old cord got frayed and wouldn’t work half the time. It wasn’t hard to take care of this either; there was an Apple store about five blocks away. 

After heading back to the hotel to drop off my laundry and phone cord, I went out to do some sightseeing in Olde Town Innsbruck. Wyn and I have been here before, and we also came here on a side trip with daughter and son-in-law Karla and Ben when we visited them in London a few years ago.  So there weren’t a lot of things I wanted to see again, and after all, I’m suppose to be taking the day off.  But I walked a few blocks from my hotel and reminisced about previous visits to this awesome city. 

Since I’m a day ahead, I could stay here one more day and be back on schedule, but I think I’ll press on up the road tomorrow and save the extra day off. My next stop is Seefeld, Austria. It’s a ski town only 15 miles up in the mountains from here. According to my route, I climb 4100 ft and descend 2100 ft to get there. Unfortunately, they have a 100% chance of thunderstorms beginning at 11:00 tomorrow. So I plan to leave at the crack of dawn tomorrow and try to avoid the weather. 

That’s all for now. I hope you all have a great weekend coming up.
