When you think of a “breakup” you probably think of a man or a woman breaking up with their significant other. But actually, in my lifetime, I’ve had more of another type of breakup: the friendship breakup. And you know what? Sometimes it can be just as painful as the latter.

Whilst I’m definitely not one of those people that raves about cutting others off and revels in how easy I find it to do so, I definitely do think that occasionally there comes a time where you really have no other choice than to let a friendship go.

Travel: A Weekend in the Val Thorens Ski Resort

The first time I went skiing was around this time, one year ago. Turns out my wider team at work does a yearly ski trip, so I spent a few days in the Chamonix, Mont Blanc ski resort drinking, partying, and fearing for my life down the most basic of basic slopes. I had such a good experience last year that without a doubt I was going to return again for this year’s ski trip. This time we ventured away from Chamonix and took on Val Thorens – Val Thorens is the highest ski resort in Europe, and it definitely lived up to expectations…

*PSA: Early apologies for the not-so-great-quality photos, as you can probably guess, I didn’t bring my DSLR out on the slopes with me
