We’ve arrived in Austria on our World Dolls Series tour. We might just catch the first of the winter snow, so our timing is perfect.
Illustrations are by W. Lewis from The Birmingham school of Design – our resident artist in Germany & Holland too. We love all the artists in this collection of books, but if we were pushed, we’d probably choose W. Lewis as our favourite. The illustrations are both charming and very clever.
Our guides are Lisa & Johann, looking resplendent in their national dress.
We’ve parked the coach up and are going to chill out (quite literally) in the Tyrol for a while.
Our hosts have no shortage of activities lined up – skiing, skating & sledging (it’s the 1960s so it’s pre-snowboarding!)
When the snows melt we’re going to get stuck into a bit of farming.
Picnics and strolls through flower-filled meadows on our downtime.
It’s going to be hard to drag ourselves away from this idyllic life, but for a bit of urban culture & retail therapy we might stop by Vienna.
Well, we do need to get that coach moving again before it seizes up. Next time it’s Russia.
