I'm baaaack! :-D by Tauriel on 24 February 2006 9:07am
Didja miss me? ;-)

I was gone for 4 days, a longer weekend, so to speak. I went home to get a little break from school and all. I went there on Friday night and I returned yesterday morning. It was nice, to change the environment. I was very much looking forward to skiing, but I didn't enjoy it too much, because just when I came, this warm wave came over us and the conditions sucked. :-( I only got to ski maybe two hours on Sunday and Monday, because after that the snow would become soft and broken, and there would be too many tourists and such. Hmph. :-/

But, I brought my skis and everything here to Prague, because next Sunday I'm leaving for a ski trip organised by our faculty, to Pec pod Snezkou (Snezka is the highest mountain in Czech Republic). I hope the weather will be better there! ;-)

So, here you have me back. :-D I'll have to check all these new messages and threads to catch up. And then I'll be gone for a week, so I won't post again too much... :-(

On a different note, I'm going to write Mr. Palin sometimes during this weekend! :-)

Pleased you had a nice break but shame about the skiing conditions. Where did you go?

Back to my home town of Krompachy. We have a nice little ski resort next to it, only five minutes by car from my home. :-)

Ah, Maria. I used to love skiing when I was younger and more limber!!!!!!!! You could always find me on the slopes whenever I had the chance and time.

You're lucky to live so close to a ski area. The closest place for me was an hour and a half drive. Good enough to begin a season, but not once myski legs were all tuned up for the season! So, getting to better places cost money and it became expensive and timely. Yet, I spent a good deal of my free time enjoying the great outdoors and feeling of freedom and a tie to nature.

I don't ski anymore but I can't bring myself to sell my equipment. It's out-dated anyway. hahahahaha. I'll never use it though. Dust collectors at this point!

I know you're having fun out there. Make your next "run" for me, will you? (But don't fall! lol)
