A Winter in the French Alps, Tignes

Tignes Le Lac

This time last year I was just getting back from my four month RTW trip with SPAR, and preparing for my ski season in the French Alps! As only a week long ski holiday looks on the cards this year, it’s hard not to reminisce about the five months spent in the snowy mountains, trying to master this one horrible run down to Tignes Le Lac!

    I just want to say that I think you might have one of the best titles for a blog that I have seen! I agree with the sentiment of that statement more than you know. Really reminds me of Jack London’s credo where he say “The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not use my time trying to prolong them, I shall use my time”. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that. Your blog is very interesting as well! Great work!

      Thanks, Thomas! It’s a quote from Oscar Wilde, and yes, the sentiment is one that also rings very true with me. Glad you enjoy my blog πŸ™‚ Really appreciate your comments!
