Innsbruck Christmas Markets Part 3

Now on to our horse & carriage ride!:














Innsbruck has it's own Arc of Triumph!






Bella's pizzeria!








Traditional clothing shop




What a fun and relaxing ride! It was the only time we weren't on the bus that we sat down all day! Bella waved to EVERYONE!!!! I think she thought she was on parade, lol!

We had about another hour to cruise around:

It was starting to get darker and the lights were just coming on!

Thomas got a stein here.


The boiled wool sweaters were incredible!!!


Best cheese EVER!!! We sadly lived too far away to take some home!

Thomas trying on hats and being goofy!





Crepes!!!!

Leave it to ME to find the one stall with stamps, lol!

I laughed so hard about this!!
And it stings when your second helping of saurkraut goes up your nose snorting, lol!











Walking back to the bus...
And passing this super cool playground!
Bella wanted to play on it, but it was very cold & wet, and we needed to get to the bus!


A few shots from the bus:


Bella played her DS til it got dark, and then crashed on my lap!






Another fabulous trip!!!
I will do one more post later with our "goodies".

Next up on the trip calendar....
Tortelli, Wine & Olive Oil Tasting trip in Verona on January 25th!

Wow! The horse & carriage ride was so cool! I could ride and ride on there and the bus and just look and look! The buildings are painted so beautifully.

What were the stamps? Were they actually for rubber stamping or cookies? I've seen wooden stamps online that are specifically made for imprinting sugar cookies of some kind and they looked similar. How cool! Makes me want to bake cookies! LOL!

Can hardly see what you bought on your trip. :)
