This wraps up all the posts on my vacation!
As you can see, I posted an (embarrassing) video of myself coming down a very tiny little baby hill on my first day skiing ever (in my entire life!)…I hope that I can post myself coming down a steeper hill next year!
It was really impractical to bring my camera around with me on the days that we skied but on the last day I didn’t ski and specifically so I could take my camera everywhere and snap some awesome photos of these breathtaking mountains.
Max’s father and I made our way up to the very top of the mountain via a couple of gondolas where there was a cave carved into the glacier. Over the past few years, artists have been sculpting magnificent creatures and other things into the glacier in this cave and we visited it. You can see a couple of the sculptures above.
We were lucky to have the sun during the day and pretty great weather. And I was ecstatic to be in the snow!!
Even luckier, on our way down the mountain we spotted the Mont Blanc (the highest mountain in Europe) which had been hiding all week long…kind of magical if you ask me!
I cannot wait to go back! Really!
Have a great day everyone!
Oh The Alps! The entire time I was there I was singing “The hills are alive with the sound of music…” in my head. Actually, I’m still singing it in head. And sometimes out loud.
They were so large and so vast. I compared them to the Grand Canyon except the exact opposite.
I went there to enjoy the scenery, maybe do some hiking but mostly to see the mountains for the first time. I ended up skiing for 3 days. This trip was my first time skiing and I know that may seem shocking seeing that I come from the country who practically owns the word snow but yes, it was my first time…and definitely not my last! It’s so fun to zoom quickly down hills! Tomorrow I have a video of my very first day in skis…it’s kind of pathetic but I’ll show you anyways.
I cannot wait to show you more pictures of The Alps tomorrow but today I leave you with this song:
Oh! And HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to Maryam my bestest friend in the whole wide world who got engaged last night!!!
