It was a hasty retreat from Italy yet the five trains and one bus seamed to take forever. We traveled back to the chalet in France where we had left our snowboards and other gear and stayed for one night before jumping back on the train to St Pancras ... Read more >

We started our south bound journey to Italy from Moutiers train station where the TGV fast train picked us up at a much slower pace than its 300km an hour capacity. Our first stop was Milan before whizzing through the rolling Tuscan countryside ... Read more >

So our season in the Alps was finally coming to an end.   There were times that we thought it was never going to, and then all of a sudden there were only a few weeks to go.   We tried hard to get out of the 3 Valleys area and managed ... Read more >

As I sit here using all my mental strength to resist the constant urge to scratch, I contemplate the parents of the little girl who gave me chicken pox.   Her parents said to us that she was feeling unwell on the drive from London to the chalet, ... Read more >

Just another month of rubber gloves, skid marks and pubic hair that is the reality of my working life here in the French Alps (Gross I know!). But I have to earn my turns on the mountain I guess. It was a month of a Chalet that was jammed with ... Read more >

After an action packed last post we feel that nothing that interesting has happened in the last month. For us the work load has softened a little (down from 70 to 50 hours a week), so we have been able to get up on the mountain a lot ... Read more >

It was just another sunrise as the train pulled in to Lisbon train station in Portugal. Tired and only a little irritable but we had things to do and friends to see. However, our friends Henrique and Verena were at work so we had an entire ... Read more >
