Greetings from the Alps! My name is Tracy, I'm Irish and have been living in Austria for over 10-years. I told my parents I will only do 1 season but the love of the Austrian Mountains has kept me here. Skiing, hiking, and snow shoe walking are a few of my favourite things to do in my home town - St. Johann in Tirol. The spectacular scenery never ceases to amaze me here. I look forward to meeting you in person and urge you to come to me with any questions or queries. I am happy to test my knowledge of the area over a coffee or beer. See you soon, and happy packing!
