Yes Oui Si - Ye --> Dui
No Photos 8th Jul 2006 - Biking London to Madrid
Yeah, I could spend 7 weeks here quite happily

Hi All,

I'm arrived and settled into the beautiful (read: absolutely stunningly gorgeous) resort at Panorama in the Rocky Mountains. For now, we're enjoying the mountain and all its attachments, and relaxing / preparing for when the kids arrive on Sunday. Then things'll get hectic.

For now, I'm in a room in the Pine Inn with the other English teacher, Leanne, and across the hall from the three counsellors / activity leaders, Rod the assistant director, and Rob the director. It's a great bunch - none of us have done this before, so we're all feeling our way together, which makes it a lot easier.

I'm afraid I haven't been making full use of my all-access pass to the resort yet, although we did ride the chairlift up the mountain yesterday and then hike back down. I've got big plans to explore the mountain bike trails and paved roads in the area, but my bike was damaged in the flight home from London, so it's out of commission until I get it back from the shop today. Then I'll be ripping it up with the others! I think the plan is that we're heading to Lake Windermere today to go wakeboarding - a delayed getting-to-know-you activity that we had to put off on thursday because of high winds and a thunderstorm. I think I've experienced more thunderstorms in the last month than i have in the rest of my years combined!

I'm going to log off now, since I can only pick up the wireless signal at a cafe here, and it's more expensive than I'd like, but I'll try to take pictures and get them up when I can.

Take care,


Next: Much much delayed
