Europe Trip Diary Entry #5 4th April, 2016
Hello everyone! How are we all? I hope you had a fantastic Easter.
I understand Easter was over a week ago but I thought I would recall my Easter for those of you who care. I began my Easter morning in one of the most beautiful churches I've ever been in. Being in church on that Sunday morning brought a very melancholy feeling upon me. I sat in church all alone when I am used to spending every Easter in church with my family at home. Being in church made me miss my family more than ever however I realised that although I didn't understand the language (it was a French mass) nor did I know anyone I felt welcome there. I felt like we were all a family of people , accepting of each other despite us being a large variety of cultures and language we were all there together for the same reason. It felt very homely and made my Easter away from home a lot easier.
I spent that next part of my day doing my food shopping and eating chocolate before going out for dinner with a group of friends and having a few drinks at the bar.
I now have just under two weeks left here and I am getting as much skiing in as possible. This means exploring new runs and freaking out at the top of one of the longest runs on my own! Whoops! I am slowly improving and gaining more speed day by day!
Here is a picture at the top of one of my runs this morning!
I have decided recently that I am in fact returning to New Zealand at the end of May and I will go home to spend a season in Queenstown to work and live. After my season there I am hoping to come back to the UK to live and work for a couple years until I decide to settle down and have a career.
I have come to a realisation whilst being here that I need to stop stressing over my future so much. There are so many older people here doing seasons and travelling, living a very carefree life without settling down and it has taught me that settling down at a young age isint as necessary as I previously assumed. It's taught me to be young and carefree and to focus on travelling and living my life the way I want to.
So I think that is all I have to say for this week. Not to much of an update but I think I may do either a favourites post of things I'm loving or a post on how to survive learning to ski! So look out for those coming your way at a slightly later date.
Love you all,
Till next time,
