Two. Out for a ski.

My second ski post.

The BEST Chair Lift. This two man chair lift holds the best memories for me. Not only was it incredibly beautiful as it took us across untouched snowy landscapes but it was also host to my favourite journey. When I was on the lift with Emily, we decided to be friendly to those passing the other way. Each time in a new language. Which we found hilarious. Especially when the lift stopped after we had said hello in German and 'hello' is the only word we know in German... so you can imagine the conversation.




The Exploring. Above: Me, Louise & Emily with our poles in the air for our pre-exploration photo. It was really nice to be able to split off into our groups after lessons and have the freedom to explore. After skiing for the day we also went to explore the town, finding a b.e.a.utiful cafe with teeny tiny marzipan fruits, patisseries galore, hot chocolate with REAL chocolate, a beautiful wooden interior and a waiter who found it too funny when I asked for a bottle instead of a glass of tap water.



The Evenings. Below: Louis, Australian Archie, Louise, Me, Emily. That night involved mulled wine, a beautiful encounter with a swing and running (then falling over each other) in the village by night. It was fun. So were all the evenings. Every night after our glorious dinner, we would stay after everyone had left to talk & listen to my (often strange) music whilst feasting on chocolate. It was looooovely.
