Looking for Winter…

It has been a non-winter this season (reason? in my opinion, it’s climate change – it can not be denied) so, during the winter-sport holidays, we went looking for some snow. And we did find some, but high up in the mountains. The road leading up is usually paved in snow but not this time (actually, it wasn’t last year either). Still we managed to enjoy a snow day out.

Here’s a few photos for you to enjoy:

All is not lost – winter has made an appearance in the last 2 days – late but at least it felt a little more like winter. But it was really just for all of 2 days, we are back to sort of spring type weather now.

What does this mean for spring and summer? i am not sure. i do hope we will have a decent summer because i am a sunshine person. Are you a sun-seeker or does the cold suit you better?

Throwback to Winter…

It has been warm, warm, warm… all last week and this week too… such unseasonal weather. So i thought i do a throwback to our ski holiday up in Flims, Switzerland. We were there about 3.5 weeks ago. It was our second time away from home with our Schnauzer, Lexi and the first proper ski holiday for her.

We had a lovely time. We took Tobias’ best friend with us and the boys had fun. The hotel was great, and right by the tal-station, which is fab. We enjoyed lovely, sunny, cold, wintery days on the slopes. The husband and boys ski while i walked with Lexi.

Here are some lovely wintery pictures to remind you that, actually, it is still supposed to be winter (according to the calendar, that is). Enjoy!

Paris… at last!…

i have lived in Europe for 13 years and we finally got to Paris!! This winter holidays we were unable to go skiing because Tobias was still recovering from his broken arms (see here if you would like to know details of what happened), so we opted to do a city trip and my beloved husband decided on Paris 😀

We were only there for 3 days, leaving on the first flight from Zurich to Paris and returning on the late evening flight. But we made use of the 3 days fully and saw quite a bit of Paris. i will just give you a picture summary here. Click on each photo to read captions and find out more about our trip.

Of course, we also did other things (such as cleaning the house, visiting friends, watching a movie and going to the Glacier Garden in Lucerne) during those 2 weeks but Paris was the highlight 😉
