Well, we're back now. We actually got back yesterday evening. With this trip, I really had the feeeling that I didn't want to come home. I'm not quite sure why, but it was there. Maybe it's because this was my last planned trip of the season? Maybe it's because there's half a meter forecast to fall between Sunday and Tuesady :-)
So the last day on the hill was fun, still really sunny and slushy, but fun. I think maybe the highlight for me on that day was a couple of group races down a long red in Flims, so much fun. We had planned to go and do a few jumps on the huge airbag that they had in Laax for the Brits week, but they didn't put it up on Friday so we missed out. Not to worry though, there's going to be an airbag at Castleford in April, so we can try that.
Lost bags. You wouldn't believe it but they lost our bags on the way home - again. This time two bags were left behind, not just one. They were left behind in Heathrow, which is the same mistake that was made on the way out. Apparently, it's quite common for bags to be missed out on connections through Heathrow - what's that all about?
Ciara and I would like to add a shout out thanks to Martin & Ash who came away with us. I've only known Martin for a handful of months and hadn't met Ash until we got to Heathrow airport on the way out to Laax. Thanks for accepting the invitation, it was awesome!
And also a quick thanks to Emma Meaburn and her friends for getting touch. They were in Laax at the same time as us, and it was really cool to meet some people through this blog :-) Cheers.
