Is that entertaining if you don’t know us? … not sure… but you’ll come to know we three sno lovers and predict for yourself if we’ll be able to go from London-living-townies (him BBC telly maker, her Bank of America IT manager) to some kind of ski-resort/Romany/travelling hybrid… in 10 short weeks…
… laughter… tears… something for everyone!
1 – get Airstream and tow-car ready (see earlier caravan-geek post)
2 – Rent the Putney Flat:
We can’t afford to be away on this mad adventure and also pay the mortgage, so our home must be rented - thanks to Gumtree we managed to do so in extremely short order… to a local young family, spookily similar to ourselves (he’s even a beeb chap)… makes you doubt your uniqueness that sort of encounter… however, they are lovely and need exactly the same duration tenancy as we need to fill (they’re having a big loft extension done and need to be elsewhere with 2 very small children) – Iddi deftly handled the flat renting process and this is a pleasing, if solitary, TICK on the to-do list.
2 – Choose 3 month route through the alps:
It’s a big old drive from London to the alps but once you’re there, all of the major ski resorts in France are within a few hours drive of each other
