Australia to France in December

Traveling from Australia to France always involves a lot of flying (ok, Australia to Anywhere involves a lot of flying), but changing seasons is another big shock that is hard to get used to. I spent Christmas in summer with temps in the 30s C / 90s F and then I came back to the Alps where it is snowing and barely above freezing.

and on Sunday I will be heading to Michigan where it is even colder and more snow is in the forecast.

Bonne année à tous et à toutes !

Happy New Year everyone!
