I`m back! And guess what? I can ski! I don’t have the speed or technique of our Janica Kostelić but I can get/ski down any green and blue ski run 🙂
I wanted to take my camera with me sooo badly, but I decided not to because what if I fell during skiing (and that happened over and over again) and broke my camera?! No-no-no-no… and since I wanted to somehow photo-record my “journey” I downloaded Hipstamatic – a digital photography application for the iPhone with a analog touch. I loooveee it!
So, it took us 17 hours with bus to our destination – Tignes resort, France.
All furniture in our condo had heart shaped handles 🙂

All the breaks are welcomed with open arms…
Healthy ski life 🙂
I really enjoyed riding in a chairlifts – you sit, relax, there is no noise but skiers and chairlift, beautiful scenery all around…
(p.s. this is the person “to blame” for my accomplishment of this goal – without him, the idea of learning to ski would have never crossed my mind…)

…and I – chilling the last day and enjoying the sun:
Till next year… 😉
