I agree with everyone except the first one :) I thought that the tour of Neuschwanstein was really dissapointing! very short (less than 30 min) and expensive!
Heh! I have been mugged before on travels but the thing to remember is that the locals can spot a terrified looking "tourist" from a mile away! stay cool and calm but do play it safe :)
Yikes! We ski every year, sometimes also on the glaciers in the summer, but the avalanche thing scares me :) I don't think I'll be going skiing this weekend!! I loved the layout of the article by the way! very neatly done with the images and the scroll...
