It’s time for my second-last ski trip of the season, a six-day, last-minute break in Austria. My excellent friend, Kirstin, and I booked flights to Innsbruck without planning any accommodation, apart from a couple of nights in St Anton, where I’m doing a race called the Weisse Rausch (more on this in future posts). We hope to find spring snow, sun, apres-ski and maybe a bit of proper exercise walking uphill on a two- or three-day tour.
What we did not expect to find was what you can see in these pictures: at Innsbruck Airport this morning when we were passing through the car park to collect our hire car (upgraded from tiny Panda to massive Astra) we discovered this brilliant set of parking bays. Frau means woman. Platz means place. In Innsbruck Airport, there are special women’s parking spots.
Annoyingly we did not get to test out or to measure the super-wide berths as I am not carrying my tape-measure. But I took pictures of the unisex places as well as the ladies’ ones, so you can see for yourself.
