Remember when you waved them goodbye, their happy little faces all full of excitement and expectation?
Remember when you were told about how the journey was about 13 hours plus or minus a bit depending on traffic?
Remember the weather forecast might have hinted at a modicum of rain and the mearest suspicion of wind
Remember how nothing ever goes to plan? That bit. That might be a tad important.
Kenny Goes Skiing (at least for a while)
Day 4 and it was Ski Notley’s Fancy Dress Day – which obviously means “chuck down the white stuff” to whoever controls the weather round here.
Looking out the window this morning was a slightly depressing experience since snow was bucketing down. We had visions of a repeat of last year where Sander the Snow Wizard stood in a howling blizzard conducting the weather whilst three penguins huddled in a group to shelter from the storm.
However how different can two apparently similar days be?
Everyone having a blast!
Day 1 saw our intrepid bunch of skiers tackling the various ski runs at Zauchensee, each in their own way.
Group 1 (as you would expect) bade everyone goodbye then tore off at lightning speed down the red and black runs pausing only to wonder why the rest of the world was moving so slowly. They ended the day windswept and grinning like Cheshire Cats!
Beautiful sunny day in Flachau today, still fairly cold at -5 so snow conditions awesome.
We are really looking forward to meeting you all at the hotel on Saturday. Hope all the packing is going well. The forecast for next week is Snow over the weekend but brightening up as the week progresses. Still cold so bring lots of layers.
See you all on Saturday
Dave and Jen
We were informed last week that unfortunately we will be unable to use the Jugendhotel Simonyhof for our ski trip this year.
However we now have the details of our new accomodation and it looks like we're even better off!
