Here I am, writing again and It's been less than one week since last time. I'm so proud of myself. I guess my blogging is like the JoJo diets, intervals with intensity and than nothing hahah. Well I wrote in my last post that we were spending a week in Colorado for Springbreak, so I thought of sharing my week with y'all.
The first pictures are taken from Saturday to Sunday, two days when we mainly sat in the car. In fact, it took us 18 hours, driving from Houston, Texas to Beaver Creek, Colorado. Though we didn't actually drive for 18 hours because we stopped in New Mexico and spent the night at a hotel there. It was a relief when we finally arrived to Beaver Creek at 4 p.m. the next day(the last pictures are of the house/ski cabin we stayed in for the week).
The first day started out with Icy slopes and cloudy skies and I must say that my excitement sank a little... but it turned when we had hot chocolate, free wifi and burgers at Ritz (the first pictures). The second day was probably my favorite day of the week. The sun was shining from an (almost) cloud free sky and the snow was softer, we were all in a good mood (the sunny pics).
These pictures are taken from a day when we didn't ski at all, our legs were to tired... So we mostly walked around in the little town belonging to Beaver Creek called Avon. Hahha my poor host brother Cameron had to drink a healthy smoothie because of me or what he called it "some hipster juice" not to his optimism. The day went by and at 7 p.m. Cam and I went to the movie theater to see the new King Kong Movie. It was good. What I didn't know was that the movie theater was placed in a town 25 min way... not to my host parents delight... ooops.
The last days included skiing until we dropped haha. Well the sun was shining so hard that the snow got very slushy and in the end of the day it was pretty hard on your legs. As well I got to see a very fashionable ski family, skiing with bare legs... I might go dressed like that on my next ski trip.. be ware.
Well Saturday finally came and we packed the car and said good bye to Beaver Creek. These last pictures are taken yesterday from the window of the car. We passed all different landscapes and it was a pretty lit. It could have been a worse 10 hours in the car, for sure. The last pictures are taken from the hotel room we slept in last night, hahah one is of my host mom, host dad and our white Sheppard Stella in the hotel bed falling asleep. I thought they looked very cute.
Over all, It's been a very good trip and I'm very happy for the possibility to ski in Colorado. Colorado is one of the better, maybe the best ski area I've ever been to.
Well we've got around 2 hours left until we're back in Hosuton and my host brother is driving.... it makes me a little nervous, but my seat belt is on and so are my earphones so I don't have to listen to any panic driving instructions... at least that's how it is when I'm driving....
Hasta la vista babes
