After spending the morning packing then buying a bigger suitcase and then repacking all afternoon I am finally ready to leave the UK tomorrow. It’s been a hard day as I have had to leave half of what I originally wanted to take behind. It’s also been hard trying to work out what I’m actually going to be wearing throughout the season. Is there any point taking a shirt that needs ironing? Will four hoodies be enough? Only time will tell.
I’ve spent the weekend saying my goodbyes to friends and family and also celebrating a mini Christmas early on as I’ll be in Zermatt for the real deal. One great thing about this is that I was the only one getting presents so it felt like a combo of my birthday and Christmas which was awesome. I went out on Friday night and thankfully many Christmas songs were playing towards the end of the night.
I checked the weather in Zermatt this morning and it was -11 degrees and there is lots of snow. I’m really looking forward to the fact that I can do all the snow activities everyone enjoys in the UK all day everyday. I’ll be able to make a snowman whenever I want!
I’m still finding it quite hard to believe that I am leaving to do a ski season. I’m looking forward to seeing the room which I’m going to be staying in for the next few weeks as well as my own chalet which I will be working in six days a week. But until I see all of that I have the lovely 28 hour coach journey to look forward to.
Thoughts from this week:
- Packing is stressful!
- It’s weird to think this time next week I’ll be skiing
- Swiss francs are a crazy looking currency
- End of Watch is brilliant film
- I think my blogs will become a lot more interesting now they will be coming from Switzerland
