Just an F-Blog #49. Savoie. Yet again.

Yes, this is the reason I have not been LJing at all for the past few days. Winter vacation and skiing in France again. It's always one of definite highlights of the year, but this time around it just isn't the same. Matjaz broke his arm a week ago and had to stay home, and I am almost sure he is always the one who is really looking forward to this Savoie things the most of them all. So, it's just not as it should be. And I am sure we'd have even better time, because The Gang got bigger this time. Andrea joined us for the weekend (and he went home today and the house is emptier now) and Ricky is here also. All in all... We're having really, really good time, just our legs and butts and some muscles we never knew existed are giving us some hard time. Oh, well, we had to grow up once, right? LOL

Anywayz... the first pic is a teaser (yes, you can envy us much) and the rest behind the cut is just... the rest of the last three days. :) See you!

Oh noes! Matjaz broke his arm? Poor guy...does this mean Gareth didn't get to come along as well? I hate he missed out on the fun. I recall he seemed to have such a good time with you all last year.

Ricky is oh-so-cute in his ski suit. He'd look good in anything ;)

Yes, both Matjaž and Gareth had to stay in Ljubljana, unfortunately... And, yes, do I sense a crush here? :)

Yes, time was great, snow not that much so. Warm winter and not enough snowfall took their toll. But it was still a 10+ trip. :)
