So it was off to Italy for the winter of 2004 / 2005. Through the Finnish grapevine in the summer I was told about a magical place in the Val d'Aosta, so rented an apartment there for 6 months starting in December 2004.

Christmas, New Years and January through till April I was there. Plenty of good folk came out to visit...my brother Toby for 6 weeks which was great. Dan and the snow safari boys, Alberto, Waz, Tim, Amanda, Nis and the Danish possee, Foz (the rock of Gibraltar when it comes to doing ski seasons!), Smithy, Krys, Heed, Soph, El, Bridgey - you know who you were!!

Here are the highlight snaps as thumbnails. If you want to see them in photo album format, just click on this link and look at the Gaby 2004 / 2005 album:
