Get out the wrong side of bed this morning Jessi?

nope always like to slag off the french.

I love this Mark Twain quotation;
"In Paris they simply stared when I spoke to them in French; I never did succeed in making those idiots understand their language."

Austria rules. :headbang:

You are spot on... I did my first season there as a ski host and i can tell you now that there is more than enough pisted and off piste to keep any seasionire happy!

great post jess...

nope, the "whole of tirol" doesn't mean they have a chalet/hotel in every town: basically it's some 10 chalets/hotels in the arlberg region, some in the oetztal, some in st.johann, but much is concentrated on arlberg (especially during holidat weeks) - so i guess it's workable. and yep, i was unforatunately born i a car (the one that took my mum to hospital)...

tnx for the esthetic advice on la plagne.

chances are 80% for st.anton i would say and 20% la plagne (skiworld just pays a tiny little bit better). prato nevoso i'v ruled out today, it's too bloody south, lack of snow worries me. just gonna miss kimberley now, she was going there i guess.

hey, no one mentioned marrying a wealthy frenchman like you have done! anyways, belgians are definitely more sexy than french. there's fewer of us too - another advantage.

i'm so going to drop this whole thing.
st anton over la plagne is all I have to say on the matter.

to belgian vince;
good luck driving, remember just cos there's no actual sign to say it's 50kph in a village doesn't mean you can't be fined 36euros for not doing it. and be careful at roundabouts, they've only had them 10yrs so some drivers are still getting used to the whole 'look to your left, give way, choose 1 lane only and indicate' malarky.

:date:

hey jess,

just as a hint: i've been drivin' around belgium, most of europe and especially austria for 8 years now as a :cowboy: :cowboy: , have been fined numerous times in austria (but hey, after the third time you have drinks with the coppers and they let u go) and just as another hint, we have the same traffic rules in belgium as we do in austria. so on a roundabout, you ALWAYS give way to the one ON the roundabout. last time i was in brighton, i had difficulties too - i admit.

but tnx for your concern! and if you are in stanton this winter, how shall i recognize you? hair colour still the same?


btw: they've raised the fines for drunken driving - last time i had to pay it was still in schilling (2500 - about 250£) and payable only on the spot, now it's gone up to 500€...

BV i think driving advice was more a rant than anything, it looks like you'll be just fine
not going to austria this season, i'm jetting across the atlantic! I spent the summer in oesterreich, by the lake in zell am see but taking care of rauris and the gasteinertal. love love loved it. :favheart:
hope whatever decision you make works out well.

yanks don't do roundabouts, too complicated so have to have lights designed to run over pedestrians instead. rant over.

my fave yank word has to be 'crush'; it's almost onomatopoeic . there really is no better description of fancying someone than having a crush. brilliant.
