Skiing in the Alps: 18/2/2011
During the morning of our second day of vacation, Règine, Floureen, Stephen, and I gathered our luggage and left our first hotel to travel to the next hotel where we were going to stay for the duration of the week. We took our time as we went grocery shopping and searched for new gloves for Floureen (she lost her pair before the journey began!). Around the afternoon we arrived at the Val Thorens ski station. With any type of voyage, we unpacked our bags and situated ourselves. Our next chore was to search for the ski passes and skis. It was a long day and, unfortunately, was not spent on skiing. Nevertheless, I kept my spirits up because the next morning my first down hill skiing experience was about to begin.
