Good morning from Andorra!

I’m getting ready to leave the Grand Valira ski resort where I have spent an unforgettable weekend. However, before I do so, I am taking some time to breathe in the pure mountain air while admiring the immaculate beauty of the snow. Eventually, I will have to leave and head back to work :(…

The past few days have been rich in experiences. I’ve witnessed extreme weather changes, done all sorts of fun things and shared these moments with amazing people. Truly one awesome and unforgettable weekend.
Our first day was quite intense. We hit the slopes early in the morning and went on to discover the huge ski domain of Grand Valira.

Eventually, we landed in Pesons for lunch for some delicious Pyrenean cuisine. Pesons is an old mountain retreat in a remote location of the resort. It is also one of the most iconic restaurant of the region. It has a wide terrace overlooking a nearby (frozen) lake. The view there is simply breathtaking.

After our stop at Pesons, we started heading back to our venue: the Hermitage Hotel & Spa. Once there, we enjoyed a well deserved spa session to bring our tired bodies back to life. Most notably, the spa has an open air heated pool with an impregnable view of the mountains ahead.

Finally, we went out for dinner. The resort invited us to Vodka Bar, an isolated restaurant in the middle of the forest. As the restaurant is not connected by any road, we were taken there on sleds pulled by mountain dogs. A truly unique and entertaining form of traveling :)! Once there, we sat for dinner and conversations by the fire. All in all, a great start to a great weekend :)!

For my time out of the ski slopes, I went for this beautiful and comfortable pancho from Buylevard. I also brought out my Moon boots. They were perfect for the occasion and kept me warm during the whole stay. And inside the ski slopes I wore a complete outfit by Bogner, a German brand that I´ve always loved…

On this note, I have to leave you. I hope you enjoy today’s post and that you’re having a great Monday!
See you all tomorrow 🙂

Buenos días desde Andorra. Nuestra última mañana en el paraíso de la nieve antes de regresar a la rutina… Pero mientras tanto, disfruto de estos últimos momentos admirando la belleza de la blanca nieve y del aire puro de la montaña.

Éste, ha sido un fin de semana que recordaré toda mi vida. Además de haberlo pasado increíblemente bien, de haber disfrutado muchísimo y haber tenido todo tipo de climatología, hemos estado en la mejor compañía y eso es algo maravilloso.

Nuestro primer día en la estación de sky de Grand Valira, lo dedicamos lógicamente a esquiar como locos. Comimos una comida riquísima en un lugar muy típico de la estación, un antiguo refugio de montaña reconvertido en restaurante llamado Refugi del Llac de Pessons. Estaba en medio de las pistas y tenía vistas a un lago totalmente congelado. Más tarde, terminamos nuestro día regresando al hotel Hermitage Spa & Hotel, donde disfrutamos de una sesión de Spa.

Más tarde, Grand Valira nos invitó a una cena en medio de la montaña, en el restaurante Vodka Bar. Lo mejor de todo fue que llegamos hasta allí en un trineo tirado por perros, y poder disfrutar de una charla maravillosa entre amigos.
Un día redondo y una gran forma de comenzar el fin de semana. Para mi jornada fuera de las pistas elegí este precioso y comodísimo poncho de Buylevard y mis botitas Moon, que me han mantenido los pies calentamos durante todo el viaje.
Dentro de las pistas llevé equipación completa de Bogner, esta chaqueta que os enseño es una de sus piezas clave de la temporada, y estoy completamente enamorada de ella.

Muchas gracias por vuestros comentarios!!
