Travel Blogs from Valloire
Friday we decided to have the obligatory Big Night Out of the holiday. I met up with Muriel and Jonas for some après in the Marmotte (which was actually the best bar I went to for the whole trip, the band was great and the bar was packed). Even the animal head attached to the wall got into the spirit, sporting his own ski goggles and a smirk. After tea (which was made marginally more entertaining by the French ...
Had a great day exploring yesterday, but I don't really enjoy snowboarding alone.

I can't imagine anyone being sad while living up there, it was just so perfect! I am already planning a way to get back up there, I fell in love with everything about the Alps. If you haven't been, I strongly recommend making it one of the top places to visit!
