Mystery is intriguing don’t you think? I’m a trained journalist and marketer with four different Instagram accounts with a combined audience of over 500,000 followers. I spent my youth backpacking around the World. Whilst I had, quite frankly, the time of my life the ideologies of a hedonistic youth and that of an affluent, older gentleman are vastly different. Consequently, in the manic 24/7 World in which we currently operate time, the great commodity of the 20th century, is increasingly short. I therefore am continually driven to seek more luxurious surroundings, specifically those boutique or luxury.

Skiing

Skiing

Winter chalets

I’m a keen if not very good skier! With every passing year I spend less focus on the snow and more on the experience around it.

I’m driven by a passion for nature as you can see from my Instagram feeds. Being below, up or on a mountain range is an enjoyable experience throughout the year.

 “Climb mountains not so the world can see you but so you can see the world” .

Here’s some of the places I’ve been too recently:

St Anton am Arlberg

This delightful  Austrian village Is located within the Tyrolean Alps. It’s often referred too as a gateway to the entre Arlberg ski region and is additionally called the “cradle of alpine skiing” for its role in inventing the sport. Johann “Hannes” Scheider conceived the downhill skiing we know today.

St Anton is often rated among the top five resorts in the Alps and it’s easy to see why – Location, easy to reach and the sheer weight of snow!

In fact it wasn;t too long ago that people were snowed in here, yes that much snow! St Anton is located in Austria’s Arlberg region, traditionally one of Europe’s snowiest regions. You’ll find pistes galore including plenty of piste terrain for those more daring, 97 lifts and a town to die for.

Chamonix-Mont Blanc

Chamonix is one of the oldest ski resorts in France and is known as the “gateway to the European Cascades.”

It’s a vastly popular resort area near the junction of France, Switzerland and Italy. At the base of Mont Blanc, the highest summit in the Alps, it’s renowned for its skiing, attracting those more experienced eager to test themselves on “le grand ski.”

Yet this is far more than a ski resort. I’m visited through the year to enjoy the various peaks and panoramic views, including Aiguille du Midi above town, and Pointe Helbronner, across vast glacier fields on the Italian border.

It’s one of those rare places where it’s easier to find a list of things that you can’t do than you can. Chamonix centre itself is traffic free and consequently is a delightful place to stroll and browse before enjoying  the cafes overlooking the river Arve.
