My first ski trip in disposable camera photos.
The Flight. With a 2am start to the day, the flight was a struggle, even more so when most other flights in England were cancelled or delayed due to dangerous winds APART FROM OURS. But I'm happy it wasn't, because it meant we arrived in Switzerland quicker! For the holiday, I joined Louise (remember her from Paris?) and her family. I like to say we're family, because my dad is her cousin's Godfather, you see the link?
The Chalet. When we arrived at the Chalet it was perfect. The view was like a Christmas card, but in reality. Amazing. We soon met and got to know the different families over freshly baked cake and a game of uno/cheat/sevens(?) and became particularly friendly with a Scottish family (George, Emma, Emily & Louis) and Australian Archie (you'll see them crop up later on).
The Skiing. My first day of skiing was so much fun. After a short introduction to all the basics in my morning lesson, I joined Louise, her family and our Scottish friends for an afternoon exploring the resort. In that time, I did some red runs (kind of proud I did this on the first day), got to know some of the best hot chocolate spots (that's me with the mug in the photo) and found a reggae bar on the slopes (hence the crazy 'dancing' Louise is doing above).

The Chair Lift. So, I jumped off a chair lift... It was my first day so I still wasn't sure how they worked and thought that as soon as it slowed a little you were meant to get off, whether that meant jumping or otherwise... Turns out I was wrong haha. Emily and Louise found it hilarious.
