In photos: Altitude Festival in Mayrhofen

As I researched this post and looked up quotes about laughter, I found too many to pick from so here are some more, accompanied by more photos from Altitude Festival in Mayrhofen.

Mayrhofen holds a special place in my heart as it's where I met my partner. It's where we snowboarded together for the first time and it's the one ski resort in Austria that I continue to return to, yes for nostalgic reasons but also because I really enjoy the snowboarding there. That and I just love Tirol and Austria. Speaking of which if you're looking for an alternative ski resort, then check out this post on Schlick 2000, a ski resort for families and beginners, another place I hope to add to my list soon.

  “They all laughed when I said I'd become a comedian. Well, they're not laughing now.”  - Bob Monkhouse

“And I have one of those very loud, stupid laughs. I mean if I ever sat behind myself in a movie or something, I'd probably lean over and tell myself to please shut up.”  - J.D. Salinger "A laugh is a smile that bursts." - Mary H. Waltdrip “There is nothing in the world so irresistibly contagious as laughter and good humor.”  - Charles Dickens “With mirth and laughter let old wrinkles come.”  - William Shakespeare “The human race has only one really effective weapon and that is laughter."  - Mark Twain "He had an idea that even when beaten he could steal a little victory by laughing at defeat.”  - John Steinbeck “I love people who make me laugh. I honestly think it's the thing I like most, to laugh. It cures a multitude of ills. It's probably the most important thing in a person.”  - Audrey Hepburn "Everybody laughs the same in every language because laughter is a universal connection."  - Jakob Smirnoff “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.”  - Victor Borge "At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.”  - Jean Houston “A day without laugther is a day wasted.”  - Charlie Chaplin “As to the mouth, it delights at times in laughter."  - Charlotte Bronte
P.S. We stayed in the most wonderful hotel called Hotel Edenlehen . It was a lovely blend of Austrian hospitality and luxury thanks to that beautiful heated pool. I highly recommend it if you ever need a Mayrhofen hotel.
