Another family holiday definitely of note. These things define and mark important times in childhood and I am happy to build up the year’s work around affording great memories for the children. Skiing is not cheap – especially skiing overseas in half term, but each time we do it seems incredibly good value for money in terms of unforgettably good memories
We flew this year (in a divergence from the previous two trips’ driving) and whilst that added to cost, it took away a little bit of the epicness of 9 – 12 hr treks across France. Personally, I’d have driven. I love the feeling of earth moving and changing as you mini-migrate over its surface. Flying’s excitement is weirdly out-of-body and literally not earthly. It does cost the earth too. Literally and metaphorically. I had to keep everyone happy though…!
It was my third trip to Sauze D’oulx. A trip in around 1980 (I think) (aged 10) with mum and Phil and then again with Katie c. 1999 – I knew it was a safe bet for a family resort.
The Italian runs and lifts were quieter but oh, so good. Queues way better. Shops and restaurants that little bit cheaper. Recommended.
We rented a large Condominium – taking up the whole floor. Was comfy and well-equipped. Great for the 9 of us.
Happy memories galore. Short vid and images here
