    Hello Laura. Great start  celebrating with family and friends.

    As in Oropos  doesnt snow very often we love snow and everytime it snows we run to our mountains to enjoy it..

    When the weather is nice we go for walks around our beautiful country... 

    If we stay at home reading is our best hobby...

    When we get time off we like to get the dogs out and explore the local beaches and the best of this time of the year is they are almost empty happy days 😀

    Fantastic M Adamopoulou! It looks like you had a wonderful time making the most of a rare snow day with your family. Did you name your snowman?

    Yes Laura we did have a wonderful time. My grandaughter named the snowman after her name "Marietto".

    Cheers!!!

    Thank you Bandara Hotels & ResortsTT,   M AdamopoulouThomas and michael for sharing these photos of bluebird skies! Here in Amsterdam, things are a bit overcast, to put it mildly. Your photos are almost as good as a teleport machine.☀️

    It's fun to learn a bit more about everyone here, keep sharing! :)

    Laura I agree with you.  This forum is like we are travelling all around the world seating comfortably in our chair, just dreaming of the wonderful places we could visit.  Photos inspire us to motivate and pack our bags and start exploring.   Beautiful images are so powerful. 

    Thanks guys for reminding us " to travel is to live".

    Hello! Sharonhaseley beautiful dogs.  I am sure your dogs love exploring your empty beaches. Sometimes we take also a little dog  for a walk to the beach. He really loves running around without having to worry about where to go and not to go.

    k2u its such a shame that you were in the hospital during Christmas, I can imagine your frustration.  Hope that you feel much better now.   I  only had a flew which was very annoyed, but only that. I made three times the cookies.  Some like them with almonds and some dont, so I made both.  Everybody was finally satisfied. If you make them remember the more you beat butter the better they will come. 

    Here is some fresh snow for you.  It started snowing last night. This will pick up, think positive!!!

    Although the Holidays are over, we are still fully booked up. Thanks to booking.com. Even single day gaps have been filled up by bdc.

    We are very happy with the season and in our sparetime we love to do the same as our guests here in Gries am Brenner in Tyrol do. Skiing and having fun in the snow :-)

    Hey Everyone!

    Ironically I missed this one, because I didn't have any time off. But I SO enjoyed all the photos. 

    M Adamopoulou  - The snow looks so fluffy! I would sell my house for a bit of coldness right now. S.A is Boiling. Perhaps I need to move to Surfers Paradise. I must say michael beeston , those cigars and relaxation looks like it Hits the spot!

    I'm not much for hiking and being busy when I've got a Short peroid of time off. Maybe if I had a little while longer, then I would say yes to adventure. Me, I like spending time with my friends. No matter the view. 

    Sharonhaseley - YES! I love dogs, but I don't have any of my own. So I enjoy other people's pets when they are out and about. 

    PS. Welcome to the last stretch of the Month, only a few more days to go!

    Hello

    Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday !!

    As for time off... Unfortunately I had forced time off starting Christmas night. Spent in the Hospital for a week !! not the holiday we wanted for sure. Home now recovering. 

    Love the pictures M Adamopoulou. (was not able to make the cookies, but having a redo Christmas this weekend so definitely making them then)

    It seems to be a very slow time for us right now.. a little concerning. The weather is not cooperating with the ski areas around us. Send some of the snow our way please, lol. I have dropped our prices, cannot drop any lower. Hopefully things will pick up.

    Hi Auther, we'd love to see a photo of how you spend your time off! It doesn't have to be at the beach or in the snow - though that appears to be the prevailing theme ;)
