Farewell, restyled (it happens) :)

Ok, ok, I needed some venting, I guess and, I guess, I made it. The venting, I mean. So, I am back. No big words, ok? Just a few thank-you's for all the nice words, ok? Ok! :)

I guess I will keep it short today, still have a lot of catching up on LJ ahead of me, but I think I'll make it. Venting, I said. It was actually a fairly hard work. Returned from France yesterday (ok, today and it was early morning) from a week of skiing in The Three Valleys region. Boy, oh, boy, was it great, it was just that boring weather...... Totally and absolutely and utterly clear and sunny for the whole week, with temperatures just around freezing in the valley of Les Menuires, where we were staying (Igor, my brother, my friend Matjaz and me-myself-and-I, still un-vented), and a few degrees below freezing up in the high mountains. The highest point we reached was respectful 3.230 metres high. Quite a task. And I can put the blame on already mentioned weather for being pretty tired still. It's really hard to rest and not to ski when given such a teasing weather.

So, a week of skiing and on the way back a short stop in Sirmione at The Garda Lake in Italy and then a lovely dinner in Treviso, of course at P&E. I just love my friends, the essence of my life.

Friends.......... I missed you, lot. A lot. So, have me! :)

So, a few pics of my skiing and a few more behind the cut.

Sometimes it's good to rest a bit.

I'm glad you're back. I liked you...now I can like you more.

May I continue to sexually harass you?

You won't believe me I love you only.

Welcome home and welcome back to livejoural! I'd sing you a song, but I can't carry a tune to save my life.

Much love,

Cory

P.S. I can't see your photos. Don't know if anyone else is having difficulties.

DON'T sing now, we want you safe and sound first. And they you'll give it a try, ok? :)

Yes, I am home and LJhome and it feels okay.... and I think photos should be visible now, I fucked up some settings, sorry. :)

HUGS and KISSES and ALL :)

The snow looks lovely there... But 3000m? That's a bit too high for me - I get really out of breath :-(
paterson_si
Feb. 17th, 2008 10:23 pm (UTC)
Yes, it was really, really, really, beautiful. And yes, skiing starts in the valley, which is 1850m high, the best is around 2200 and 3000 and there are a few peaks that go above 3000m. And yes...... there's not enough oxygen around all the time. Especially after you've made a 6km slope. LOL

Sounds like a proper mountain range to me: none of that 1500m="mountain" nonsense in Eastern Canada and the US!

You can vent on me anytime.
paterson_si
Feb. 17th, 2008 10:39 pm (UTC)
yes, that's what mountains are like, and given the shitty winter we're having in Europe this year, you can only get good real snow that high.

So, it was good and good :)

and...... *blush* :)

Damn fine snow!

I need to get out boarding. Never seen such wonderful conditions like that over here. Looks blissful.
