Before the beginning of this year, I had never skied.
Even going to a snow-covered destination seemed like such a drag given how little sun we get in the UK. And I am forever praying at the sun altar.
Plus, a conversation with a skier and snowboarder – where the experience was described as going ‘shoob, shoob, shoob down the mountain’ – left me thinking skiing sounded really boring and was probably not worth the money.
For millions it is the ultimate bucket-list trip – who doesn’t dream of getting behind the wheel of a Mustang to explore the wide-open roads of the United States?
So whether you want to get your kicks on Route 66 or visit the quaint coastal towns of New England, buckle up and enjoy the ride…
