2 weeks ago I was in Berlin and Hamburg (both great cities but also very different) and I didn't even thought of using internet to see forums.

Yep. Yesterday at 5am I took someone who I know really well and work with, and a friend of his from Mayrhofen to Zell am Ziller. There they met up with more friends, and with the 7 of them they went to Innsbruck airport, and boarded a little plane, which crashed 20 minutes later, killing the 5 friends and the pilot. Happened a little after 7am. They were going to Valencia. Two survived.

Our national broadcast didn't even report about it. Now I see that some of our other media did. RIP

Survivor's guilt is real, and any one of us would have it in your situation. I hope you take the means necessary to cope, grieve, and allow others to show compassion in light of the circumstances.

I read the news, Italian newspaper wrote about it. My deep condolences.

When I was in high school my classmate, whom I shared the desk with, died in a car crash on the afternoon of a school day... I think I somewhat can understand.

Nice. Mild weather, not hot neither cold, quite a few tourists but not too crowded. I think it's the right period.

Just arrived home from my Austrian road trip. Pics will follow.
You're right, I rarely use internet on holiday but I had to checks some very important emails, so I also checked SSC and other forums I subscribed.

I saw in a souvenir shops some condoms with written: "I'll show you a big thing" or "See my beast".
