Eighteen months have passed since our family of four completed our round-the-world adventure. Being home is wonderful, but our family also loves being on the road together.
One of the delights of traveling together is the sense that the four of us — my wife, son, daughter, and I — are on a special adventure. We encounter new places and new people, we get lost and find our way, and most importantly, we do it together.
After a year-and-a-half at home, we are on the road again. This time, we are in the Alps. We are house-sitting for a wonderful family as they take a holiday to Lapland. They live in Geneva, Switzerland, in a beautiful home with a great view of Lake Geneva and Mont Blanc. And, we are about an hour from ski slopes.
We hit the slopes on a beautiful day in Avoriaz, France. The day started out with foggy weather, but by the time our skis touched the snow, the sky was clear and blue. The snow has not been plentiful this season, and many locals have kindly expressed their concern that our experience may be less than optimal. For us, though, it was a grand day.
Ah! To be on the road again is a wonderful thing!
