Livigno Day 7-8 La Grande Finale #blogg100

Due to technical issues and transfer, this has taken some time to hit the air.

Time to wrap up the week in Livigno, and when you read this, I’m just thru the door.

The final day’s in Livigno continued in the same sunny and great way like the rest. Great skiing and fun shopping in this Tax Free Paradise. Due to its history of being isolated bigger parts of the year, before a tunnel to Switzerland was built, the town flourish due to tax free shopping.

This time I of course need to add a picture of myself as well. 🙂

As most dad’s probably can recognize, the number of pictures of the photographer are scarce.

The morning on Friday started with a great view..from my bedroom window.

On the way to the slope the sun was up and today was the day when our little one, had her day of truth after a week in the Ski school.

We did some test runs and after that, dropped her of. Well after the day, it turned out that she finished as number one in her group. PROUD PARENTS! 🙂

 

AND DAUGHTER!!

So with that, we went to Hotel Bivio for a celebration dinner and as always the food was great.

Saturday was spent finishing of the shopping, getting some Italian food, including of course Parma Ham, Parmesan, Balsamico, Olive Oil, Grappa, Spumante and some Wine.

After a 13 hour straight driving, the 1350 km, from Livigno to Sweden, via Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Denmark we are back.

So folks Today, we re-start the green section again!

Take care
