Dreaming Of...Zermatt

About this time every year, I think about Zermatt.

 
My girlfriends, Megan and Brenda, and I had some crazy-fun adventures there on a New Year's girls trip. It was years before husbands and babies...no boyfriends, no serious responsibilities. Silly times.

And even though I slipped on some ice our first morning there, broke my elbow and never skied a run, spent the week in a cast and couldn't even tie my own shoes...


...Best New Year's Eve Ever. By far. We gorged on fondue. Gathered with what seemed like the entire town in the village square at Midnight and got baptized with champagne. Then celebrated the new year with new (very cute) friends at an all night party at the Hotel Post.

I've always wanted to go back and actually ski that run that takes you across the border into Italy for lunch.

I'm sure the next time I go, things will be a bit more tame. Just relaxing in the sweet, car-free village.

  7. Yeah - I'm not sure what got into me, but I attempted a fondue party this new year's eve in Sun Valley - with 7 adults and 10 kids. Certifiable. It was ridiculous. I need a do-over. Maybe in Zermatt. Jeanne, you make it all look so good...
