We’ve returned from our Alpine skiing trip to snowy Aberdeen. Both Jonathan and I have arrived home exhausted and with a bit of a lingering cold. Please forgive me if I’m not the most consistent with my blogging for the next few days, but one of the benefits of housewifing is the luxury of rest.
Today I just wanted to take a small break from napping to give you a quick recap of our bucket list ski trip in the French (and Swiss) Alps. This was Jonathan’s biggest wish on our European Bucket List and it lived up to expectations.
It was different than our usual travel experience, because mainly we didn't feel like we were traveling. Instead, we were on vacation. Our days were full of skiing and dining in our chalet, so in many ways, we didn't feel like we were in France. I didn't spend any time sight-seeing or taking pictures. In fact, I never even turned my fancy Nikon on.
The benefit was that it was a low maintenance, relaxing getaway. The downfall is that other than snow quality and slope inclines, there is nothing much to write about, and certainly not many pictures to illustrate.
But just because I can't write a novel about our week in France or make a full photo album of our holiday, doesn't mean it doesn't rank up there with our other European vacations. Quite the contrary. Here's just a little numbers game to show you how much we enjoyed our trip.
1 token Canadian
1 connecting flight
7 nights in a chalet
6 days on the slopes
1 ski lesson1 wolf sighting
34 bottles of wine
6.7 pounds of cheese
3 game nights
4 pounds gained
2 chalet angels
1 injury requiring emergency surgery
1 trip of a lifetime (well, maybe not for the injured party...)
2 exhausted but happy people in our household.
I'll try to write more throughout the week depending on how I feel. I hope you're having a fantastic Tuesday!
