Ski trip to New Hampshire

 

Our week away in Boston began on a cold Saturday morning in Dublin airport.  However, when we landed in Boston we soon realised that Northern Ireland was the tropics compared to the winter wonderland of Boston.  From being thrown in at the deep end on our first two days at Loon, we were put back to the nursery slopes half way through the week at Waterville Valley to practice our technique.  We sang the week away with classics from the 90’s everywhere we went, including the slopes where we sang at the top of our lungs going up the ski lifts.  We had the time of our lives on the slopes and we think we can speak for everyone when we say that the banter in the evenings made the trip.  From doing snow angels in our swimming costumes followed by jumping into the pool and a classic movie night on Valentine’s Day, we created memories that will last a life time.  Of course our favourite event was the shopping day in Boston which definitely left a hole in our wallets and then we struggled to fit everything in our suitcases and stay under the weight limit.  All in all, our week in the States was the best experience of our lives and one we will never forget.
