Beyond The Alps

Apologies for the lack of posts recently. I was caught up in one of those vortexes of time right before a big trip where I have 1 million things to do. Anyway I am back in business again and can now relax and post at my leisure.

I was away in France last week, high up in the Alps in a little village covered with snow. Me and some guys did a basic ski proficiency course and while it was pretty tough going at times, I had to total blast. It was just totally crazy looking out over the mountains, the view was incredible and you never really got over it.

Ski lifts also took a while getting used to, but once you realised you weren't going to fall out, the ride was breathtaking. Heading up to the top of a mountain and just cruising back down to the bottom was so much fun. The weather was pretty good too, check out my awesome goggle marks!

Little Miss Sunshine

It's crazy only being able to have a maximum of 1 lie-in a week, one of my least favourite things of having a full-time job. Therefore Saturdays you have free are awesome and you don't want to do ANYTHING except chill out.

After a reasonable sleep last Saturday I got up and stuck on the movie 'Little Miss Sunshine' while I was eating my breakfast. It is basically the story of a dysfunctional family and probably one of my favourite films. Its pretty simple, but just a great story, really moving and really hilarious.

I'm not going to ruin it for you, but just say if you haven't seen it, I would strongly recommend you do some day. There is a scene at the end of the film where the family just all come together and there is something so funny and beautiful about it; It may be my favourite scene ever.

Enjoy the day, everyone on is Irish on March 17!
