Weekend Tour

Besides the slopes, I day tripped along Lake Geneva from Nyon to Chateau Chillon near Montreux. Super weather, awesome views with a dot of Olympic sprinkles.

Snowboarding

When in snowy Switzerland, there is only one thing to do; head for the slopes! Despite the start of the grammer/highschool holidays in France, Switzerland, Germany (and Holland), the excellent snow conditions allow for some magnificent runs! This weekend I tried snowboarding, I am hooked!

Lake Geneva

I cannot complain, this is the view each morning when I walk to work. Beats the morning traffic in NL!

Luge a Nuite

This week a great company team building event; an evening sledge ride down a 7.5 km mountain path, rewarded with a neat fondue!

Snow

A day after buying my first ski gear and "Grade B" hiking shoes, it snowed! Timing could not have been better, though I am hoping for more precipitation to really put my purchases to work!


Lisbon

The last couple days were spend in Lisbon with a broken camera. The latter got replaced and my blackberry helped me out... a little bit!
