I wasn't very familiar with the Ice-Bucket Challenge, but it's the role of the teenager to have their finger on the pulse.
Before we left the glacier on Day Two, Evan was determined to take the challenge. As I mentioned in the previous post it was colder up there that day - I had a jumper, parka, gloves and beanie on and there was no way I could have taken them off, but Evan doesn't seem to feel the cold like I do, or most other people do for that matter.
Yes, he's crazy. That water is flowing straight out from under the glacial ice and snow.
A face of a little bit of discomfort, I think...
Those bare feet on those ice-cold rocks!!
Oh why not just run up and stand on the snow... It still makes me shudder!
Love this photo so much...
We were still cold on the way down.
I'm certain the water would be warmer at the lower altitude but Evan didn't feel the need to test it.
Day Three on the mountain.
No snowboards. Just mucking around.
It's an awesome scene more than 3kms up in the sky!
So fun, and yes I did do it too!
There is plenty of non-snow stuff to do in the Hintertux as well.
But down the road a bit there is the Zillertal Arena, and it's fun activities which include the Coaster...
The Coaster is a luge-like, self-manned, roller-coaster which appears to be awesome fun for all. So awesome does it appear, that we willingly waited an hour for a 'ride'.
India was uncertain about taking the controls in a roller-coaster car so I happily and gallantly offered for her to ride with me.
It was to be, possibly, one of my most embarrassing moments.
Being in control as this mini-cart precariously held on to it's tracks around steep cambers of railing with a nervous passenger made me the ultimate careful driver. So ultimate, in fact, I slowed down at least 4 people behind me, even though I was going way too fast for my own comfort!
Crushed and ashamed, I got off at the end of the ride and went for an ice-cream with India (who I think wanted the ground to swallow her up too), while Evan and Belle took it on again - without scardey cats.
Oh, Austria and the funny names! More of them from our last visit, here.
Back at Sport Vital, the towel origami experts had been at it again...
Makes me smile!
