Skiing in the Cote d’Azur: Valberg and Isola 2000!

I went skiing twice this year, once in mid-March and once at the beginning of April.  That’s right, skiing in April in the south of France!  And thus is the magic of mountains.  The first time, I went to a ski resort called Valberg, and the second, to one called Isola 2000.  Here’s a handy-dandy map I created to show you people where I was:

distance

The one near Peone is Valberg, and the one that’s 34 miles away is Isola.

Fortress at Mont Boron

That’s right, I went back to Mont Boron!  I hadn’t gone up the hill with beautiful views overlooking Nice since back in October.  I guess like with my two visits to Villefranche, it needed revisited before I left!  I considered putting the pictures from the day in with my Haut-de-Cagnes post, but I decided two short-and-sweet ones would be nice after my massive post about Toulouse 🙂

One warm and sunny day Sam (Notice a pattern?  He’s a good friend, haha) and I decided to go up to Mont Boron, since I had never seen the fortress up there.  Honestly  it’s not much to look at, but the views of the city below are AMAZING.  I miiight have amped up the color a little too much on some of these pictures, but they’re just so pretty!

Changes and a Challenge

Hey all, I’m back!  Hope you weren’t too bored stiff by that series of posts.  No worries, next will be travel ones about a couple places my boyfriend and I went 🙂 Until then… an update!

As stated in the title, there have been a couple of changes in the life of Kelsey (la vie de Kelsey…bahaha).  One of the biggest is that I changed the date of my return ticket to the US.  Like I mentioned here, I bought a round-trip ticket, and I chose the arbitrary return date of May 23.  I knew my contract ended on April 30, and I wanted to have a few weeks to travel before I came back to the US.  However, what I didn’t know was that I would be done teaching April 12 (HOLY COW THAT’S A MONTH FROM TODAY); French schools happen to have a two-week break at the end of April!  Technically I should have to teach April 29 and 30 but I don’t have any classes on Tuesdays, and I doubt they’ll make me come in on Monday; they always need me less the week after breaks, but even if they do ask me to come in, it’s only for a few hours.
