Decathlon resultaron fabulosas, a muy buen precio y estuvimos calenticos todo el tiempo y eso que hasta estuvimos revolcándonos en la nieve! La mayor parte de la ropa la compramos en Sport Zone y como estamos justo en época de rebajas pues mejor aun!
After three winters in Spain we finally did it! We went to Sierra Nevada to "see" the snow. We decided to go almost overnight so you can imagine how hectic it as during the week in order to get everything you need to go to the snow. From thermal underwear to glasses for protection from the sun (and thank goodness! Because as you will see in the pics we barely took them off, lol)
As for thermal underwear, and if they are from around here, the ones sold by Decathlon were fabulous, great price and we managed to stay warm throught the day even while wallowing in the snow! We bought most of the clothes at Sport Zone and since it´s annual sales time, even better!
Ziryab, una belleza y lo mas importante para nosotros, que nos dejaran quedarnos a los cuatro en una misma habitación. No en todos los hoteles se permite eso y mis kiddos son muy peques para quedarse ellos solos en otra.
Como les comenté al inicio, el motivo del viaje era ir a ver la nieve. Los kiddos nunca la habían visto y no pasaba un día que no dijesen "Mama, queremos ir a la nieve" Así que, monitoreando el canal del tiempo pues vimos que justo ese finde nevaría en Sierra Nevada y si que nevó!!! No dejó de hacerlo desde que llegamos el viernes por la noche y todo el sábado.... hasta nos tocó la famosa ciclogénesis explosiva!!! así que falta de nieve no hubo....
Since it was our first time in Sierra Nevada we booked a hotel near the main square, nothing too far from where the action takes place. In our case it was the Ziryab, beautiful and most importantly for us, they let us stay in the same room. Not all hotels allow that and my kiddos are too young to stay by themselves in a room.
As I mentioned at the beginning, the purpose of the trip was to go see the snow. The kiddos had never seen it and not a day went by that they didn´t tell me "Mama, we want to go to the snow" So, monitoring the weather channel, we saw that that precise weekend it would snow at Sierra Nevada and boy did it snow! It snowed from Friday night and Saturday all day long ....we were there during the famous explosive cyclogenesis! so there was no lack of snow ....
Good thing that, as the saying goes, the sun always comes out after the storm because on Sunday moring it came out and it was as if we were in a different place and we could really appreciate how beautiful it is. Too bad that they closed all the slopes on Saturday and we could not ski ... this way we have an excuse to come back, lol.
