My First Ski Trip!

So, as some of you may know Ian surprised me with a trip to Aviemore to go skiing for Valentines Day which was absolutely AMAZING! I had never been skiing before so as you can imaging I was pretty nervous. However, I knew that to really get myself into the spirit of it all I had to invest in a whole skiing outfit – Ski Barbie as I liked to call the look.

Driving from Glasgow to Aviemore took a little over 3 hours but the views were totally worth it! I always forget how beautiful Scotland really is and this trip made me appreciate it even more…

Absolutely beautiful…

I am not ashamed to say that I ROCKED at skiing! Managed to ski the whole way down the side of the mountain – without falling – which is no mean feat. My only slight wobble was at one particularly steep part I lost complete control of my speed and shot down the mountain like Eddie the Eagle on LSD – screaming at others to help me!!! Never been so scared in all my life and I got a massive dose of the shakes when I finally slowed down which took a full half hour to stop. On reflection I must have looked like a character from a comedy sketch show, but at the time I was petrified. However I will not let that dampen my spirits! Can’t wait to go back again!
