At least from Wengen for the winter of 2017/2018. The Idle Skiers have left the village.
In fact, we are fast approaching Berne en route to Zurich airport. It is so long since Mrs IS ventured into the wide, wide world that I will spend the next twenty-four hours stopping her wandering into the traffic.
When Truman Capote heard that Jack Kerouac never rewrote anything after committing it to paper, he commented “that’s not writing, that’s typing”. Well I hope you have found this blog to be more than just typing. It’s been a lot of fun producing it.
So much fun in fact that the blog will make the occasional appearance over the summer, with idle thoughts from the coast, the river bank, some cricket grounds and, of course, Wengen in summer. I hope you will stay tuned.
A couple of hours skiing this morning produced 4,293 vertical metres in 13 lift rides. This brought my season figures to 687,956 vertical metres in 1,564 lift rides and 3,787 kilometres travelled.
I might put my feet up for a couple of days.
