I have started working on my vacation plans today. I am thinking about a trip to France and the Alpine ski slopes there or in one of the surrounding countries. A friend of mine was telling me about his trip there the other day. He went to a place called Vaujany which in the French terminology is called a commune. That is something that is left over from the days of the French Revolution I believe. It means that they all work together. He says that it is a good place if you have a family, because the slopes for beginners have a lot of good instructors and this a very quiet area. Of course if you are a single college age tourist you would not be looking for a place where there was peace and solitude. You would be looking for a place where there were lots of young women who were ready to drink, dance and have a great time.
This is a different matter, since I have a wife and two small children. (more…)
