I have just come back from a short stay in Vienna – February was meant to be a clear month from travelling given a January ski trip and a birthday trip planned next month, but last minute Levi got a gig to represent his work place and speak at a conference in Vienna – it was was going to be on Valentine’s Day – so it all just sort of made sense and slotted perfectly into place as the perfect excuse for a trip away. A few weeks of planning and we were off. It was only a very short 2-day round trip but it was still great to get a taste of such a beautiful city and also have a break from the UK – so, if you’re like me, with just a bit of time to spare, here’s how you can utilise a short stay in Vienna…

*As it was such a short trip (and as I err… forgot) – I didn’t bring my DSLR. In which case – enjoy these iPhone 6s photos. I’ll ideally be getting my hands on an X soon, which means better quality 24/7 % of the time, yay.

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
