It was my first New Year’s Eve in the mountains and it was amazing.
We entered 2015 on a cottage….on the peek of Tauplitz,in Austria.
We went on a torch-light hike with a guide….it was an amazing adventure.
It was cold as ef but we had hot beverages and an amazing view all around us.
At 00:00 we were back at the cottage…we drank prosseco with the beloved ones while watching the fireworks.
I was always against visiting mountain area in winter…cuz I’ve always hated cold weather but I must admit that it wasn’t that bad as I’ve always tought….it was kind of magical.
I had tons of layers on and they really kept me warm the whole time.
On the 1st day of the New Year we went skiing.
One of my New Year’s resolutions was to learn how to ski.
I’ve only been once on skis…and that was a million years ago.
We went on the kids slope cuz I had to learn the basic things such as finding the perfect position not to slide down (unwanted), learn how to bend & how to slow down .
After skiing a few times on the kids slope….I had the guts to try the bigger slope.
I was scared as shhhh…cuz it looked very steep.
Kevin held me the first time cuz I was too afraid to go on on my own.
After that,I gained a lil confidence and I tried it on my own.
The second time I did a great job.
The third time I tried to use the ski-sticks and the inevitable happened.
I couldn’t slow down anymore,I panicked and I let myself fall haha
It wasn’t so easy..cuz I couldn’t decide on which side to fall hahah…guess who was laughing and making stupid pictures of me….my boyfriend,of course…..but I wasn’t angry because I’m also gleeful on my own 🙂
Getting up was even harder than falling down.
Kevin’s brothers went up and down with their snowboards like it’s nothing…
Okaaaay….it wasn’t their first time….but rather their 1000th time haha
I’m kinda proud of myself that I’ve already started accomplishing my New Year’s resolutions.
I’m not a winter-sports hater anymore.
I want to go PRO (haha) and to ski down the longest slope like it’s nothing.
And I also want to learn how to snowboard.
Kevin is the best teacher….he used to go snowboarding every weekend in winter-time.
Can’t wait to get better and better and be able to slide down the biggest slope with him.
All in all,I had a lot of fun….and I’ve finally beared down my winter hate haha
I can’t wait to be on the slope once again.
I used to be the summer kind of person but I found out that winter is beautiful,too..in its own way haha
How about you guys….how did you spend NYE?
And have you already kept one of your resolutions?
