Oh goodness me people! Can I start with the cheese? Forget the snow. Cheese. It's all about the cheese. They don't mess around in France! Wow. The food has been sublime - Dr Atkins would be fairly happy... I guess one would have to avoid the baked potatoes and french fries though... Damn that would be rough.
Ski holidays are hard work - even without skiing - all the gear you have to wear, the layers - the multiple layers... It's not easy. Especially after 10 days at home in South Africa where all you really need is a pair of flip flops and some sunglasses and off you go. Trying to make it outdoors with a baby in many many feet of snow with a continual downpouring of snow... Man it's exhausting. But once you get where you're going, it's pure bliss. Gorgeous shops, amazing food (did I mention the cheese???), superb atmosphere. Not to mention we're here with fantastic people and our chalet is perfect.
The little guys - our Mac and Annie and Carter's Jack - have been troupers. We are so intensely lucky.
I highly recommend France. Vive La France. Ski on down!
