A Gusty Morning in Bristol to the Alpine Paradise of Innsbruck

This morning I decided to fly to Innsbruck Airport; a dangerous, alpine airport in Western Austria synonymous with go-arounds, diversions, and technically difficult approaches. My route took me from the small British airport of Bristol across the country, over the British Channel, and over the European nations of Belgium and Germany, before descending into this alpine haven.
