It’s so good to be back. Although I didn’t really plan on updating this regularly, it’s actually been pretty fun – and over the past week I’ve definitely missed doing so…even if no one’s reading it. I guess it’s good for me to get everything out and let the world know what’s been happening in my life!
So from where I last left you…
After roadtripping across Italy for pretty much the majority of the day, we checked into a little hotel at the base of the mountain in Canazei. It was so conveniently located, within twenty metres of the chairlifts more or less…but that’s only if you’re going skiiing. Ugh, so frustrating – but I’m definitely coming back one day, mark my words!
Besides that though, everything else was practically perfect. It snowed every single day of the week, and to be honest it was absolutely incredible! Even though I’ve been to the snow and seen it all before, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it in such an intense and amazing way – LOVE.
The second morning, the scenery had completely changed from my initial impressions of the night, SO beautiful! Wandering around town, it was just generally such a cute place. There were heaps of different pasticcerie, bakeries and local market-type shops everywhere! This is Italy.
Up the mountain though, the scenery was utterly spectacular to the point that neither words nor pictures can’t adequately describe its grandeur. Sure, the weather was freezing but it was definitely worth it! Such a good week away, I can’t believe it went so quickly!
Coming home last night also marked the end of the Christmas-New Year’s holidays, so it’s been a little hectic on my end with school re-starting itself today. Although I’ve been thoroughly enjoying school here in Italy, I must say how much I’ve loved having the past two-and-a-half or so weeks off!
