We had an amazing half term in La Thuile, Italy, skiing and snowboarding. We were lucky enough to have Murray's sister and family come and join us for a few days. La Thuile is a great resort, with 3 magic carpets and a chair lift directly across the road from the hotel/apartments. Then a gondola up to many runs in the alps, from La Thuile you can ski to France for some runs as well. The weather was surprisingly spring like, but fortunately it didn't affect the snow. The girls all improved their skiing, with Hayley doing her first black run. Charlotte did her first long, blue run on her snowboard (she did a few days last season). Hayley and Emma learnt to board, which was great fun. Our visitors got up on skis and cousin Ariana was a natural on the snowboard. Murray and I both got to ski and snowboard, but unfortunately I injured myself again. Fingers crossed my sprained ankle heals quickly. Inspite of that, we had a lovely time and would highly recommend the resort. Our accommodation was basic and dated, also a little loud. But the skiing makes up for it.
Our overseas move started in 2005, with a brief vacation in India. Then we joined the Tsunami relief team in Sri Lanka for a couple of years. We were then based in Nairobi, Kenya for 9yrs. Now based in Geneva, Switzerland for the past 3 years with Murray in a global role still travelling around to the hot spots. Hoping to make the most of being in Europe.... full info
