Try Everything (most things) Once
I’m a partial believer in Mae West’s statement “I’ll try anything once, twice if I like it, three times to make sure”. And for this reason I never hesitated when in 2013 some friends came up with the idea of a skiing holiday despite no previous experience on ice or snow.
Six friends signed up for this idea and interestingly enough two were experienced snowboarders and the remaining four of us had no previous experience. In preparation for my greatest adventure, we (the newbies)booked one lesson at a local snow centre with the hope of gaining some valuable experience for the trip but came back not sure what I had signed up for. I was, however, still in the spirit of wanting to try skiing once and if I liked it, I may have another go.
In April 2014 we had a weeks holiday skiing in the French/ Swiss Alps and it was one of the most AMAZING experiences of my life – loved every minute of it and look forward to trying it a second time.
