    Ladies, all the ladies!

    In recent years there’s been a real growth in women-only travel and indeed solo travelling women-only holidays. There’s a whole host of reasons for this ‘phenomenon’ – it’s a great idea; being part of a ‘girl gang’ somehow makes everyone there feel more involved, more relaxed from the get-go, there’s so much encouragement and laughter.

    Your mates are RUBBISH!

    Well, they are a bit aren’t they? At uni we all had a big squad of pals through lectures or through sports teams and other clubs. Everyone was always up for doing stuff; going out, going away, living life to the max. I get loads of people saying they wish they could go away and […]

    Last year (2018/19 winter) the all area Portes du Soleil lift pass was 268euros. It is a lot of money, but we do see almost every year new lifts and investment in our ‘back yard.’ Over in Les Gets there is currently a dirty great big hole in the hill to the right of the […]

  • That sinking feeling

    That sinking feeling

    I’m not a strong swimmer. I mean, I’m ok – but I don’t think I could rescue you and I’m always a little unsettled when I can’t touch the bottom. I think it hinders me; my paddling whilst surfing is the least efficient thing ever and it makes me not overly keen to ‘go out […]
