About this blog

I ventured off to a festival in the alps on my own and thought I'd share my experience for anyone else thinking of doing the same!

We thought, in classic festival style, it was time to wack out the booze!

But in a very British manner, we decided to do this in the form of 'having a couple of drinks with dinner, then getting smashed in the hotel room'...

So we get to know each other etc.. get drunk etc etc

Then we ventured out into the midst of Les Deux!

Mini Bar, Smokey Joes & L'avalance were just the first nights worth of clubs!

The guys we were with were from Devon and happened to know the Dj's playing in Mini Bar..and epic Dj's they were!!

Considering I've never been a fan of clubbing, I had an amazing night, there was no lairy people lingering about, not try hard girls, no overly drunk 17 year old hiding in the corner. Just a load of like minded people in a sweaty room listening to what I can only describe as a drug for your ears!

Went back to the hotel room for some more drinks and to drop off the ski jackets (Beer jacket had replaced by this point).. went back out! danced some more, ended up in the club next door, which was surprisingly quiet, however we still had a kick ass night!

and instead of a camp site we had a hotel room to juggle with, ended up going back there, with some lovely random Welsh boys that the guys bumped into the day before, and the guys from the room over the hall, ended up staying up until 7:30am chatting about life.. The festival feeling was there!!

& Then we slept...

blog-0076611001420204769.jpgSo on the 13th of December 2014 I ventured off to the resort of Les Deux in the French Alps!

I'm a final year event management student at Bournemouth University and that means one thing...Dissertation time! instead of following the monotonousness regime of making a questionnaire and asking random people to fill it out, I thought, hey! why not get on a plane and go to a festival that's never happened before on my own!

So I did!

And what an adventure it was.

The cost of the trip kind of swayed me once I had booked it as I had to get a credit card to pay the trip off, although I only decided a month before hand that I actually wanted to go..

Anyway, after a few weeks of preparation, buying ski gear and anxiously awaiting my week a lone in the Alps, the day came!

Prior to the trip I had posted on the events Facebook page to see if anyone else was going on their own.. I was in luck! A guy called Nick from California was starting his European tour there and another graduate from Cambridge called Zak whose very into his Trance!

We spoke for a few weeks and I met zak at the airport, we flew out together, got to the resort at about 10:30 pm local time, by then a lot of people were in the party mood!

However i wanted to sleep,

My hotel was wayyyy up a hill, bit of a trek but hey I am in the mountains after all!

Anyway, I slept, woke up to go to my first ever snow boarding lesson! which was horrible! horrible horrible horrible. I gave up after the first day.

However! Zak, the guy I flew over with introduced me to his room mates who were actually very good at snowboarding and they looked after me all week!
