The Name's Bond.

As I mentioned in my last post, I'm actually in Switzerland this week! My family and I are creatures of habit and we come back to the same place (resort, hotel, room, table in the restaurant etc) every year.. we've actually spent nearly six months in this place in total.

This year as the weather is so beautiful, we ventured over to a neighbouring valley where the James Bond movie On Her Majesty's Secret Service was filmed in 1968. To get into the spirit of things, we decided on something slightly more extreme than usual and skiied off the mountain side with a parachute at 7,500 feet or there abouts and it was INCREDIBLE. It's something I've always wanted to do and we made a bit of a snap decision to go and do it yesterday.

No one ever believes that I am the action adventure type when I tell them!

Lots of love from Switzerland!

  3. Totally like something from a bond movie..
    Your insane! I don't think i'd ever be brave enough to do something like that (even if it does look fun)
    Glad your enjoying your well earned break.
    It looks beautiful there :)

  5. I can't even look at that picture of you hang-glide skiing without throwing up in my mouth a little. I think I would pee in my pants. You're kind of hardcore.

    AND...thank you for reminding me that double the Chanel = even better. I hadn't even thought of doing that (durrhhh) and now I think I just might have to, and dedicate it to YOU and your beautiful mind. You're my favorite person in the blogosphere.

  6. Wow, that looks incredible! I've done the parachuting and the skiing, but never combined both... I'll have to try that at least once. Hope you're having a lovely time - the weather there looks gorgeous!

  9. I'm so jealous of all your Swiss adventures- every year they sound so fun! That M by MJ shirt is so rock n roll! I want it.
    Wow.... hang-gliding off a CLIF! That's just amazing.

  12. Well I certainly hope you are free of that awful law firm and doing more fun things...like skiing in the swiss alps. No one should be expected to work their lives away. My job was actually exactly like that when I started...we were literally not allowed to leave until 7:30 pm and were expected to check in constantly on the weekends. Thank god it's calmed down now.

    And I would love nothing more than to run into you in a dark alley. Can you please come to California so we can shop and perv out on cute dogs?

  16. This post is awesome! I haven't been skiing since my first time doing it when I was in France in 2009 - I did really enjoy it, though it hurt my thighs a lot (haha!)
    Great photos of the scenery, snowy mountains are so beautiful especially when the sun reflects off them.
