Everyone in this world can recognize Paris and relate to its charm, more than any other city in Europe. But my first time there was just this year. I don’t have a reason why I let this happen so late. I guess I associated it with a romantic city and that was not necessarily my type of travel destination.
It was April when I saw the Alps for the first time, in Val Thorens, France. Also, it was the first time skiing or better say, learning the basics.
Never ever before had I put the boots on, so imagine I didn’t know how to ski, to snowplow or just to stay up with the ski on. I was pretty excited and in 4 days I was trying the red slopes.
