Esprit Week 2 Day 8 & 9 - Alpe D'Huez
Week 2 - Day 8
Left for resort around 10am, we seem to be cursed by delayed coaches, left the uk 2 hours late.. left the training resort 1 and a half hours late... its slowly getting better i suppose.. maybe leaving at the end of season we'll only be an hour late
Drove through the alps (managing an hour of sleep along the way) through small towns, then assended the steep climb towards L'Alpe D'Huez, Along the famous Tour du France route up the mountain
Arrived in Resort around 2pm had some lunch, got the baggage in and settled down
Then had a rather boring Fire Safety Brief in the afternoon, followed by a rather weird version of "Speed Dating" in the evening to get to know the rest of the team, Fun Times!
Week 2 - Day 9
Another Morning in the snow, doing a mock "Take To" session.. where we would escort the children to their ski lessons, had some fun and games at the ski centre, then back to the hotel
Had a nice lunch of soup with some nice fresh warm baguettes
Followed by an afternoon of Housekeeping and Cleaning guest rooms
Its one of the Girls birthday today, so the plan for tonight is to go out for a drink..
Don't think ill be out for long, rather tired at the moment..
Heres to the start of the season!
