Hey you lovely lot :)
As you all know, I've been in France, Samoens to be exact, for the last week, abandoning Paloma to post on the blog by herself. Just to prove to you all that I haven't been skiving and I miss our lovely little blog and especially Paloma terribly as a week is just too long!
I've been skiing since I was about 12 so I'm steady on a pair of skis or snowblades, but unfortunately I'm no pro :)
So, on the slopes I had a laugh with my dad, as my mum doesn't ski (she's petrified of heights) and she stayed on the safe ground below taking my Boxer/Collie dog Sasha for endless walks in the snow. My dad and I went on routes I the 'Grand Massif' which consists of the Swiss, Italian and French mountains. On occasion we would seek refuge from the below zero temperatures and occasional blizzards, we would warm up with a bowl of vegetable soup and a good cup of tea.
The town of Samoens is a beautiful one. With gingerbread-like chalets and little patisseries and boutiques selling Christmassy style goodies, although it's February!
Overall, I had the most amazing time and although I had to bear the freezing cold, drinking what felt like gallons of tea certainly made up for it. I recommend anyone who's thinking of going skiing to go to Samoens as it really captures the spirit of wintertime :)
Loads of love, Jess xxx
