It’s about time I had another Mountain post. I was tempted to go for Whistler but with the Tour de France passing through Bourg St Maurice this week I opted for this view down the Isère valley from the Solaise chairlift in Val d’Isère. Today the Tour started from just a few miles down the [...]
This could be my final post from Tignes. As I write we have our car booked which we pick up Saturday afternoon from Albertville ready for the drive back on Monday. The Don has very kindly offered to meet us in Calais and take us back to the UK in the Walk-a-bus. What’s Left?
A quick one today! The final paragraph of the last post I mentioned that it was snowing, it turned out to be a big dump.
This was unfortunate as it meant we had to dust off all of our gear and head out onto the mountain for, what we thought at the time, would [...]
It’s nearly over. We have under two weeks until we leave Tignes, it has been our home for five months and we have loved every minute of it. The good thing about the season ending is that you don’t feel you are leaving anything amazing, the snow is melting, people are leaving and you know [...]

I left you on 6 October with stories of wedding & Concorde, the next day was Karen’s birthday and I surprised her with a [...]
Again, it’s been a couple of weeks. It seems that I’m just too damn lazy, I will try harder. Promise.
The first Blogworthy thing is our trip to the south of France in sunny Nice. We decided to get away for a weekend for our anniversary and after a quick scout on Sleazyjet Nice represented [...]
I’m typing this on my phone so I’ll keep it brief. Basically I’m in Alpe d’Huez with Stuoobs and Easty, conditions are perfect and we’ve enjoyed a day of fresh powder and blue skies. The usual situation has happened in that we’ve commandered an Irish bar and been mostly drunk. Last night saw [...]
