Thursday 13

Thirteen Things about my vacation

01. I am currently on vacation. Skiing.
02. and can't help it, but I am doing my TT!
03. It's call intense addiction. Not curable at the moment.
04. Plus the laptop is available (*shows the happiest smile*) . AND it is snowing, I don't ski without appropiate visibility! that's why this post is early, too.
05. Happiness is having a laptop with wireless internet connection while on hols! even if the connection is very slow.
06. Skiing is another of my addictions but it is limited to a few weeks per year and the flat rate (aka season pass, which I don't have ) is not as convenient and only from 9am til 4:30pm... I truly hope I am skiing when I am 70, then it is for free in some ski areas. That is something to look forward to.
07. But mainly because it would mean that I am healthy and in good shape at that age.
08. In fact I know people that age and over who are still on skis!
09. Both Mar boys (father and son) love challenge, that's why we are in this area this time, so they can go up to the Aiguille du Midi and have an experience off piste starting at 3,842m . Our son was 12 the first time he skied the Mont Blanc's Vallèe Blanche. I haven't skied the Aiguille du Midi , I don't need the challenge, I am perfectly happy with "normal", prepared slopes the adjacent ski stations offer!
10. I have gone up (and back) with the cable-car. The view is breathtaking, see some pictures, it is a wonderful gallery available through the net.
11. My pics and Teen17's exclusive photographs will be sorted out (and shared) when we get home.
12. I still have to figure out the best way to keep my digital pictures.
13. If you don't ski, do you still care to see some skiing/mountain pictures? After the current olympic games, maybe there is a bit of saturation regarding winter sports!

Leave your link in comments, won't be adding this week as I will not have the time due to skiing priorities, but know that I will visit your blog/your TT as soon as I can. Miss me if you are not a skier, you may be jealous if you are. Do both if you ski and blog!


  1. I bet you're having a blast!!! Enjoy!! Mine will be up... tomorrow, LOL! :)

  2. I want to be happy! I want a laptop!

    Enjoy the skiing.

  3. I enjoy the pictures despite snow being my worst nightmare!!

    Enjoy the rest of your trip!

  4. I love the pics. I have never been skiing although I could have been if I wanted too. We are only 3 hours or so from some great ski fields here :)

  5. Honey - I LOVE your photos... :-)

    and just 'cos I didn't like it doesn't mean I don't want you to talk about it!

    btw - MB's friend has just broken his leg skiing....

    Be careful, and tell those boys of yours to be careful too!


  6. Awwww enjoy! Mine will be up :)


  7. That place where Mr. Mar and your son like to go looks FANTASTIC!!!
    I don't ski at all...but I think if I did, I would not need THAT challenge, either!

    Hope you will show us photo's of where you are staying and things like that....! I look forward to it, Mar....Enjoy the rest of your time there.

  8. dad is 67 and he still skis and still cycles every year in the ride across Iowa.
    I try to keep up.

    enjoy your vacation.
    my TT is up if you get bored.

  9. I can't ski. I don't like it...but I'm glad you're having fun. I love pictures of snow and the mountains. Bring 'em on.
    Hope it clears up so you can get to skiing soon.
    Thanks for stopping by. (My blog is registered with technorati and it still doesn't show up. Weird! Oh well.) Have fun and be safe.

  14. Oooh I am so envious. I want and NEED a vacation right about now, lol. Have a great time! Happy TT!

  15. Sometimes it's more fun to post on the road than it is to at home...and the laptop is like bringing your favorite teddy bear along! Have fun! I have mine up too but I don't expect you to come over when there good skiing to be had!

  16. Wow, enjoy that vacation! My 13 are up!

  17. I love it when I go on vacation and the hotel/coffee shop etc has wireless internet access. That makes me a happy girl too!

  18. Lucky you!!!!

    I'd actually be afraid of skiing. So you're braver than me.

    And I WISH my laptop supported an Internet provider, but it runs slower than molasses with Internet access!! So I don't have it on my laptop anymore.

    And I love winter. So you're twice as lucky!!

    My 13 are up!

  19. Get off the computer and go enjoy your vacation! lmao
    However, I will be taking my laptop with me when we go to Disneyland this coming I've no room to talk! Have a great time, and Happy TT!
