Hi, my name is Elen, I am 45 years old and I stay in Geneva, Swiss. My husband and I love mountains and we ski-mountain and snowboard a lot. One such day coincided with Christmas. The holiday is usually celebrated in the bosom of the family but we decided to spend it far from our house in a hotel of adjacent France.
It is never a problem for me and my husband to get up at 7 a.m.
I will have ice tea for breakfast.
And prepare some food and tea that will be taken with us. We are taking chocolate bars and dried fruits with us. Later we’ll buy some sandwiches.
Let me check if everything is ready.
Will they let us stay at an expensive hotel with all the junk?
On the way to the hotel.
The view changes completely in 40 minutes.
This is the place where we’ll drink some coffee.
What can be better for breakfast than a warm apple pie?
Let’s continue our journey.
I am fixing the snowboard to my backpack.
Two people are passing by us paying no attention to the warning sign telling everybody to beware of avalanche hazards. But we have stopped to check whether we are on the right way.
As we are following a new route we have to stop every 10 minutes.
The ground is totally flat.
After a short snack the route was claimed unsuccessful.
The new route was bad and we could not use snowboards during descent.
At least we knew that there was no use coming back here.
Finally we were back.
My husband was against of showing the photo to everyone but I disagreed as it could help to attract attention.
For some unknown reasons the 5 star hotel lacked hangers and we had to leave our things around.
The rock crystal looked wonderful.
This is what we saw during our walk.
Enjoying the views.
The painted people used to live once in remote past.
We are going back to our hotel.
Now we can sit by the fireplace and have a drink.
The shoes were standing next to the fireplace.
We are invited for supper.
A bit of cognac and chocolate after the supper.
Our before Christmas day is over and we are going to sleep.
