A weekend in the Alps

Hello everyone!

Sorry for my major period of neglect for my blog – I have been so busy at work  that I haven`t had the energy or time to write anything that would interest you all.  I also don`t want to bore you with general everyday stuff so only try and post when I do something interesting or exciting. Anyways, I want to start off by thanking everyone for the birthday wishes you sent me, by skype, facebook and e-mail – it was so nice that you all thought of me on my big day. 🙂 I will be doing a post on my birthday festivities soon but first, I want to tell you about my weekend in the French Alps.

About 2 weeks ago, myself and 3 friends headed 6 hours outside of Paris to the town of Combloux (in the Mont Blanc region) of the French Alps. We rented a car for the weekend and a little chalet styled apartment on top of a hill. It doesn’t matter where you are in this region, everything is spectacular. They have been without snow for over a month so there was a lot of grass and dirt poking through the snow all over but even still, it was incredible.

We spent two days snowboarding and despite my boots being ultra uncomfortable I got through it and had a great time. The weather was warm so we sat on the patio at lunch over looking the alps all the way to Switzerland!

I was super excited to see hot air balloons as well! I have added that to my to do list in life – ride in real a hot air ballon. They are really very majestic in the sky and look like they would provide an amazing view of everything around you.  It was a super weekend filled with snowboarding, hot chocolate, raclette (mmmm) and a picture perfect view in every direction.  I could have stayed forever and abandoned Paris to be a ski bum in the Alps – oh what a life!
