Personal | Ski weekend in Chamonix

Klik hier voor de Nederlandse versie.

Today no beauty post, but a personal update with some of my favorite pictures from our last few skiing trips! A little ode to skiing, you could say :-) I first started skiing when I was four and I love love love it so much. Normally we go to Austria at least once a year to go all out on the Tirolean slopes, but because of our move to Switzerland in January we missed out on this year’s skiing holiday. Luckily we live pretty close to some great ski resorts, so if we throw on our ski outfits and jump in the car we can be on the slopes in less than two hours.

Two weekends ago Tom and I already went skiing in Glacier 3000 in Les Diablerets for a day, and tomorrow we’re going to Chamonix in France for a whole ski weekend. And this time we are not going alone, because two of ours friends, Lieven and Saori, are flying in from Belgium to join us. Yay!

This means that I won’t be around for a few days, but I’ll be back again on Monday. And in the meantime I’d like to share some of my favorite skiing pictures with you so you can all get in the mood with me :-) Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
