It also wouldn’t be a proper Christmas/New Year holiday in Marseille if we didn’t go to the figurine mountain. This year people have outdone themselves! Not sure all the representations are really traditional but A+ for creativity.
We started off the year by a walk along the beach – and some of us decided to go for a swim… I was very happy to stay nice and dry!
We didn’t even have “salat olivier” and didn’t watch The Irony of Fate… we’re leaving some traditions behind.
Funny how sometimes a good sandwich during a roadtrip is the best thing in the world!
Full day for the little ones – medals at the skiing school and some varenyky-making lessons! Gotta start them young!
On a previous outing I had seen signs towards some ruins and I decided to head down there for a run-slash-walk down there, early one morning. Not much to talk about but there was Pokestop there, so there’s that.
Due to lack of snow, the main activity was hiking rather than skiing.
My father is the type of person to bring a 2001 wine from his wine cave to a quick family lunch, not that anyone is complaining.
There wasn’t much snow to be had in the Pyrenees but at least there were cows to socialise with.
The EU Ecolabel is taunting me wherever I go! But I’m saying this in a jokingly loving way.
The holidays started out not so well – delayed flight to Amsterdam and missed connection to Marseille and all next flights to Marseille fully booked. In the end I had to spend over a day in Amsterdam instead of heading out to ski. At least the hotel breakfast was good.
Right before the holidays, all sorts of snail mail came in – snail mail is still the best!
