Adventures in France: Day Six

Day six in France (March 7th) with overcast skies and flurries, something we didn’t mind in the least. Our team was ready to ski, so we suited up and headed to Le Brevent again – but would take the Gondola over to Le Flegere, a different part of the French Alps. The weather and visibility wasn’t as good as Day cinq at Le Brevent but it was still a wonderful day, full of off-piste exploration.

We hiked to the bowls, traversed over to rock edges, really got our fill of the mountain, despite the poor vis – our ski gang really made the most of it.

We skied Le Brevent for awhile, then headed in the gondola over to Flegere, the peak that’s directly next to Le Brevent, Our tickets got us access to both sides, so we figured we’d give it a whirl.

After we had our fill, we headed back to our chalet, changed and headed back out for Apres at a bar that had American paraphernalia all over; pack-man, back to the future posters, 80’s jams on the stereo, Bar Dup.

It was great! Knowing that we’d be going big the next day, skiing Valee Blanche with a guide, we headed to the store for supplies and headed back home to eat a gorgeous French lasagna and headed to bed early.

It all began 15 years ago, in high school, when a boy met a girl and fell in love. Big parties, summer vacations, a big red jeep. Happiness came easy and was plentiful. Ah, but youth is wasted on the young and so the boy and girl went their separate ways.... Fast forward through college, first & second apartments, trips around the world, motorcycle accidents, moves to different cities, jobs and more jobs, starting a company, falling for two horribly wrong people which led to two broken engagements, then reuniting with each other. Yup, that about sums it up. That leaves us, Catie & Mike, 15 years later, back together. We saw the world apart & now are venturing through, exploring happiness together. From creating new tastes in the kitchen, to venturing new wines & touring craft brews, entertaining friends and family, to traveling to new destinations, upgrading the house, to parking it with the puppies, it's us, enjoying the ride. We're not making up for lost time, we're just not losing any more of it. And so our happy adventures begin...Follow us at happyandweknowit.com
