Aloha from a very snowy NYC everyone! You may have seen on my Instagram or Snapchat (Michaelabear1) that I had an exciting weekend skiing at Hunter Mountain. A big group of us (Erika, Niamh, Lorna, Ciara and the boys) rented a cute little cabin on AirBnb for two nights in upstate New York and headed up Friday night after work. As it was my first time skiing, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect but after a group lesson on Saturday morning, I picked up enough basics to attempt my first slope! I’ll be honest though, I was definitely not a natural and spent more time on my arse than actually skiing but it was all in good fun. On Sunday the girls and I swapped the skiing for a day of tubing which was definitely a highlight!
The great thing about living in the States, is the endless amount of opportunities there are for taking little weekend trips like this one! Especially in New York, you’re only a quick drive or a short flight away from somewhere beautiful. I honestly feel like these trips will be the highlights when I look back at my time in New York in many years when I’m an old lady living with fifty dogs. I’m already looking forward to where 2016 will take me (hopefully another trip to The Hamptons!
