Spittal an der Drau, Austria, January 1999, Part 1

Every year my father Rauli goes to a meeting of the Journalists' International Skiing Club (SCIJ). In January 1999 he was going to Spittal an der Drau, Austria with them. About a week before, one of the Finnish members canceled his going there. So my father asked if I'd like to go to Austria. I had been making so many magazines that he thought they would admit me as a member of SCIJ. The participants didn't have to pay for the hotel, only flight, and my father would pay that for me. I wasn't sure if I wanted to go, I had thought about going to Paris in May. But this trip would be completely free for me so why couldn't I go to Austria in January and Paris in May. I could ski a bit and maybe go to Salzburg or Ljubljana some day. I was admitted as a member so I decided to go.


Saturday 16. January 1999
We flew from Helsinki to Innsbruck. Then we had to travel by train for four hours. Spittal an der Drau is in the Southern Austria, in the state of Carinthia (Kärnten). Our hotel unfortunately was about 5 km from Spittal, in a very small village of Seeboden. The hotel was very nice, and there was excellent food in their restaurant.
