Officially the last day of the summer season! Answering a few questions I’ve had recently about what I’m doing now ✖️ I started visiting this region as a baby (thanks mum), and my dad still lives out here, so you could stay it’s a very special place in my heart. Back in 2013 I had a sudden urge to work abroad one summer between college as I was getting fed up of life in Somerset, I needed more in my life. I found a great chalet host job at @sb_ski@chaletantoinemegeve in Megève for a couple of months, and got so hooked I kept coming back nearly every summer. I was blessed enough to spend my year abroad of university (2016/2017) living out here too (= little work & lots of skiing), which was an absolute ball. At the end of that year abroad I had to become manager of the chalet mid-way through the season, and let me tell you, it was not easy!! I went back and completed my final year of studies at the University of Warwick in the U.K., and was re-offered the management position, starting 3 days after my last exam! So, I now live in the middle of the French alps permanently, I work all year-round (though the hotel operates seasonally), and I have no plans on going elsewhere. Yes the job can be hard - being a manager at 24 years old (I’ll be writing on this shortly), but the perks are amazing. For example, I can hop in the car and 1h later I’m sat at this beach looking at the view - & it suddenly feels like I’m on holiday - not bad. I guess that’s why im enjoying blogging so much, because I can share my new life on there - all the good times, and the struggles that come with moving to another country.
