Taking time, because its worth the best friends ski trip to Obergurgl
My best friend and I finally managed to spend time together. It was not very easy to find space where we both didn’t need to follow our daily business. Simone and I have been friends for ages. In the past years, it was entirely though to meet up regularly.
We decided to spend some time in Obergurgl, as Simone has never been there before and I quite like the area. A reason why we chose that region because my friend is running a hotel there, where I’d love to stay. Especially since they hired a new chef, the food was delicious. So basically, we combined our time with a good ski and spa trip. The food was brilliant too.
„It’s about good times. Alps, Spa, Food, Ski“
We arrived later the day and got welcomed with a lovely drink and a nice view. Kind of our private apres ski. We explored the spa and booked us a massage. The lady who took care of us was super lovely. I appreciated that she used products from Thalgo, a high-quality brand. Also, the sauna options were quite impressive. Simone and I tested the new pine tree sauna – definitely worth checking out.
The food lover
The dinner was fabulous. Besides soup, salat and a nice aperitif, I chose the steak and Simone wanted to try the surf and turf. Both have been amazingly delicious, and the portions were quite big—lots of food for us. We decided to drink red wine and got a great suggestion for our main dish— Austrian wine. Of course, I could not say no to the dessert. Banana cake with the chocolate mouse – sounds like the dream, right?
Back at the bar, we had some drinks with Sophie; she is the receptionist of the hotel. She is responsible for having a good time. We planned to wake up early to enjoy a full day of skiing.
„Waking up with a view.“
What I liked – was the view in the morning; it was a magical place to wake up. It felt like being on vacation, even if we just have been 1 hour away from home. A short trip is the best trip. Easy. Relaxed but taking a lot back home. Simone and I had some lovely breakfast, eggs, fresh bread, lovely made porridge out of Verival Bioproducts (a brand from Tirol), Pancakes, fresh juices, coffee, and fruits.
As it has been a beautiful morning, we jumped out of the hotel directly to the piste. There were no clouds in the sky, just a wonderful sunny day. We skied and explored the new gondolas at the ski area, had some hot chocolate, and enjoyed the time with us. I realized, especially after been super busy and traveling a lot, it is essential to take the time for your friends. I always can be the last time you see each other, remember that. #bestfriendsobergurgl
When did you enjoy your last trip with your best friend? Ages ago? What I suggest – do enjoy it now!
Thanks to Simone for having such a good time. #bestfriendsobergurgl
