Tauplitz, Austria - taken by Rae Tashman -></p>
<p><b>001</b>: Braving the 4-hour car ride from Saalbach to Vienna with friends in an entirely packed car, meaning my shoulder is probably going to hate me for the next week. Had an incredible time both in Saalbach and Tauplitz learning to ski though! As a total beginner, most of my time was spent trying not to fall and getting over the sheer terror of having to face completely down the mountain in order to turn – which, you know, is needed should you actually want to reach the bottom.<br />

    I’ve been determined to learn to ski for the last ten years and I’ve never gotten round to it. Sounds like such a fantastic experience though! Fab roundup too by the way – so happy you’ve pointed me towards that turnip and quinoa salad! :) x

  • Thank you so much for the article regarding rape. As it is a topic many, myself included, can relate. It definitely highlights the perplexing nature of rape even though it shouldn’t be at all. Despite consent being very clear, rape itself is murky and confusing. Sometimes rapists don’t know they are rapists because they were taught it wasn’t or it wasn’t ‘like the movies.’ The article explains it so well, so thank you so much Rae <3

    You are much braver than I would be, trying to ski! I’ve tried a bit of ice skating a couple of years ago and surprisingly didn’t fall. That’s as wild as I get!
