I resolve to do better

My New Year Resolutions are not going as perfectly as I predicted…. #take12trips was scuppered in February by my lack of a trip. Yes, in my second month *sigh* I don’t even think I left the ski resort in February. It’s a busy month & I have a never-turn-down-work policy. Plus I moved house twice ...

New Year Resolutions – 1 month on

01. March 2015 beauty, Travel 2
New year resolutions – What a pile of crap. Every year we all go through the ritual of summoning our will power to aspire to be healthier, exercise more & achieve our goals. Fuck that bullshit. This year I shall not be buying into a week of highly motivated good intentions for them to waver & me to ...

Have passport, will travel

Another great travel enabler in my life is Sky Scanner. The hours I have fantasised over that website…. Well, I don’t care to count them! It is literally my travel porn, cajoling all these alluring destinations & possibilities. My feet itch just thinking about it!!! I work to a tight budget & I’m very flexible ...

I just planned next month!

I have been trying to put some time aside to plan my year, or at least the next few months. When I came to Switzerland for the winter season, my duration was always dependent on whether I was getting enough work. I expected to be here over the busy Christmas holidays at least & maybe ...

Dear Skype, I love you

14. February 2015 technology, Travel 0
I bloody love Skype. Another highly cherished ‘enabler’ in my world of travel. Without Skype I don’t know if I could go for long periods away from my family & ‘home, home’ (aka my original home where I keep homing back to). However, with Skype comes a world of hurt, abuse, trauma & neglect as I ...

Morocco – The Aftermath

13. February 2015 marrakech, Morocco, Travel 0
I am fully settled back into my Alpine life. Morocco feels like a life time ago *sigh* I walk the streets of Verbier, trudging in the snow, basking in the beautiful snow kissed mountains & no one heckles at me. My personal space is not invaded. I am not interesting or unique to people. I ...

My Alpine Life

08. February 2015 Travel 0
As predicted, I am straight back to work when I get back to Verbier. Nannying or massaging by day & babysitting by night. I am lucky I am not a big skier as I don’t have the free time to actually ski! I will hopefully be working non stop through to the end of February ...

Farewell Morocco!

All too soon I am back in the airport & waiting to board my flight back to Switzerland. My trip flew by so quickly & I am so glad I made the decision to go. I met lovely people, experienced a beautiful land & of course, the hammams! I made some purchases to remind me of ...

Still hammaming in Marrakech. Bliss!

My last night in morocco & what better place to spend it than in a hammam. Dear god it was incredible! I went to the hammam next to my hostel. I’m so sorry I don’t remember the name. I can however give you directions if required! All the staff were very lovely. I went upstairs for ...

Not all fellow travellers have morals

After complaining about how I hate being hoodwinked & shortchanged, lo & behold, someone in my dorm steals my purse with €250 in it. I am so mad. What sort of low life does something like that? I generally have good karma but I know that money is long gone. I wish the thief nothing ...
