Our little chalet was lovely! As our trip was our Valentine’s Day gift to each other, we decided to book a ‘VIP’ chalet. This meant that we got lots of nice little extras, like a Jacuzzi, a sauna, and a lovely lakeside location.
The weather was still VERY wintery while we were there. The lake was frozen over, and we had a few flurries of snow. As snow always does, it made the water and forests look even prettier and more magical!
Of course, we hired bikes for the week, and got a lot of use out of them. Our sunset bike rides were my favourites!
We also played a bit of table tennis, went for a few walks, visited the farm animals, fed the ducks, and did lots of swimming (well, floating around on the ‘lazy river’ and whizzing down water slides more than ACTUALLY swimming if I’m perfectly honest). There were some wonderful, hot outdoor pools too. I think my favourite bit of the holiday was swimming outside, while it was snowing!
This Center Parcs trip didn’t involve much other sportiness. We spent the rest of the time drinking hot chocolate, eating pancakes (it was Pancake day while we were there), watching movies, and snuggling up in our chalet.
Of course, I did a bit of crafting while we were there (more of that to come in another post). I also took LOADS of photos. I wanted to experiment a bit with the news lens Simon bought me for Christmas. I lured in lots of little birdies with tasty snacks, and they made the perfect test-subjects! I really like the photos I took of them.
We had a wonderful, relaxing week! The only thing we didn’t like was having to leave!!!
Why do holidays always whizz by so quickly???
Now we’re looking forward to our next one.....
