In 2013 we were able to trade our condo timeshare week in Vail for a week in Austria. The week in Austria was very fun, with the highlight for me being a drive along Austria's version of Trail Ridge Road. The Alps were stunning, and the impact of the peaks rising straight up from sea level more than made up for their lesser altitude compared to the Rockies in Colorado. We also took a few quick trips into Germany as well, prior to heading back home via Iceland.
