Rise! In the Mountains

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!
