Yes, Harold was due off to the wonderfully named Obergurgl before, that is, he did himself a mischief and ended up incapacitated from his endeavours on his makeshift piste. And those old Brits out there who are familiar with this classic old comedy may have guessed that Albert, his father, ends up heading for the slopes instead.

Ars Electronica at Linz. You'd be forgiven if you thought that this is a modernist sculpture of buttocks. Instead it's a museum cum installation space though I haven't quite got my head around what exactly I'd find there There's some weird virtual reality exhibits, a robot tending a flower garden, 3D photocopying and all sorts of mind boggling stuff that seems to deserve a peek much more than a stuffy older style museum or church. And when all that technology's blown my head away I'll head off out of town and try the calming 2km barefoot trail at Hexenwasser, an odd 'back to nature' type theme park complete with friendly witches and elves situated halfway up a mountain in the Tyrol!
