Every year while we lived in Germany, the International School had a winter break, or 'ski break'. The school organized a ski trip and we always signed up. We went to Chamonix, France; Bad Hofgastein, Austria, and finally, Zermatt, Switzerland. Might have that in the wrong order, but France was definitely first, where the kids learned to ski.
I found a photo of Jenni and me skating in Austria. Just love the yellow and blue parka...ah, the early nineties fashion in Europe!
