We live in the tropic, we see green everyday, e v e r y d a y the same weather, same scenery, we can wear shorts or pants, a sweater or a tank top, sandals or boots, dawn and sunset at the same hour everyday, yes I guess is true that we have perfect weather! But remember we are human and we want what we don´t have,.. that´s why freezing to death is about our favorite Christmas wish! And we are blessed enough to be able to travel every year and put on lots of layers, hats, gloves, you name it, we do it!
This year we picked skiing in Deer Valley, Utah for our winter vacation! Best part was that my mom and dad tagged along as well as my sister with her fam!
Flying from Venezuela to Utah is a long haul, but thankfully our girls are pretty awesome travelers, I could say maybe even better than me! And then again nowadays, just hopping on a plane and leaving Caracas is a sigh of relief... kinda sad, but true!
We stayed in Salt Lake City for a couple of days. We found SLCto be a great little city, it has the feel of a campus town, very quiet and serene, with lots of parks and snow, some great malls to visit like the City Creek mall or the Gateway Mall. Great restaurants, a lot of Mormon sites to see, specially the North Temple which is pretty impressive, plus we got to see all the Christmas lights which are really beautiful and very many!!!!, There is also the Utah State Capitol building which is huge, you would never believe how big it is. We went to New Year´s Mass at the Magdalene Cathedral which was beauuutiful! This is a Mormon town, and you can definitely feel their culture, people are very nice and friendly, you can see lots of children everywhere, the downside is that everything closes on Sundays, and that there is no liquor in most restaurants or supermarkets. But then again... who´s drinking, right? What we loved the most was its people, everybody was ready to helo or just be kind and friendly!
One day after this terrible pic, we drove 30 minutes to Parl CIty / Deer Valley to the house we rented! It was a beautiful drive, on a beautiful cold day!!! Couldn´t have been better!
And with no time to loose, of we were to rent our skis and boots!!! You can judge by their faces how excited we all are!!!!
I´ll post more pics of us on the slopes on the next post!! Thanks for stopping bye!!!
