It feels like such a long time since I sat down and wrote a blog post, and oh how I have missed it! My blog, I guess, has become somewhat of a diary almost, except a very public one which friends and family (and others obviously!) can come along with me on my journey. The last two weeks has definitely included many a journey. As you may already know, I have been on holiday for the last two weeks, and I really tried to make the most of my time off.
For the first week of my vacation, I was lucky enough to be invited by my French family to go with them skiing! They own a property in a small town called Jausiers, which is located in the Alpes-de-Haute-Provence of France. I had an amazing time, and cannot thank them enough for taking me away on one of the best holidays of my life! Whilst there, I fell in love all over again with skiing (having been many years ago), and hope that I get the chance to do it more often in the future.
After a nine-hour car journey all the way back to Paris, an early 4.30am wake up call brought me onto my next mini adventure – around 33 hours to be precise – to Geneva with one of my best au pair friends. And what a whirlwind experience that was. Despite only being there for just two days, we managed to see and experience a lot, even making time for an Opera on the Monday night (more about that in an up-coming blog post about this particular trip!).
Following this, my final trip of the holidays was to Madrid to see Malek before he departs for his South American adventure this March. It was lovely to be back in Madrid with more days to explore the beautiful city and just to relax after my busy adventures. We also headed to Segovia, just north of Madrid. I had never been there before, but couldn’t wait, especially when Malek told me that Segovia has the highest concentration of Romanesque churches in its city. It was like being at Disneyland for me!
So there you have it. A very, very brief outline of all my adventures during my two-week holidays. I apologise for the shortness of this blog post, but I really just wanted to update all my wonderful readers, and am in the process of writing up my experiences along with the photographs I have taken on each trip to upload onto here. So watch out this space!
Wow! What fun!
Thanks for sending the blog, Roisin.
