This was following THE most ill-fated, 26-hour overland journey from high in the Italian Alps to The Low Countries to collect The Beast, a 30-year old ex-army truck that is to become our new, all-terrain mobile home.
Coming up to our fourth week in isolation in Italy and unable to leave the house for over a week, we have had to get creative. Here are a few more ideas to help you while away those hours productively!
I am absolutely thrilled to have been selected as an Ambassador for Ratoong, a rapidly-growing website whose aim is to help skiers and snowboarders to compare, search and rate ski resorts – like Trip Advisor for skiers!
As a middle-aged lady with a dodgy knee, I am not your archetypal Snow-Sports Ambassador, but what I lack in those departments, I make up with enthusiasm. Since we gave up work to travel, Mark and I have spent our winters on the snow with our four pooches, and prior to that, we skied for as many weeks as our jobs would allow.
On Tuesday 24th March 2020, the UK followed many other countries around the world and went into lockdown. With so many of us forced to find a way to cope with isolation, I hope to offer you some ideas, support and puppy love from Mark, myself and The Fab Four.
I was privileged to make a contribution to this article on learning a language, published on the excellent website, TravelAwaits;‘A website by the 50+ Traveller for the 50+ Traveller.’
