Today was a travel day from Germany to Austria. We woke up to rain, after having a thunder and lightning storm the night before, also with a heavy downpour. It would only take a few hours to drive to our place, so our plan was to stop at a town called Innsbruck and go to a shopping centre to pass the time. We got to the mall a little after lunch time so we bought some pizza and had a little sit down. After lunch we split up to do a little clothes shopping, I went with my dad and my mom headed off with my sister. We recognized a couple of the stores in the mall, such as H&M and Jack Wolfskin, but most of them had German names that we hadn’t ever seen before. In the couple of hours that we spent looking around, both Hannah and my dad were successful in finding a couple new shirts. Unfortunately, my new shoes that I bought in Blackpool have already split in the sole, but I was unable to find a replacement. Once our clothes needs were fulfilled we stopped at the grocery store inside the mall to get some supplies for our dinner, as well as breakfasts and lunches for the following days. This ended our shopping day and we finished the rest of our drive to our new house for the next three days.

Our new apartment is really nice, and we even have free access to a pool only 2 km away. My mom was also quite excited about another downhill rollercoaster that is fairly close as well. Our host is also very kind and helpful, and speaks English fluently as she is originally from Britain, so that always scores points with me.

Innsbruck is famous (to us older people at least) for hosting the Winter Olympics twice. It's a popular winter sports destination. It's funny to think that you went there to go to a mall.
