Canada and USA 2011-12

Lars used to be a ski instructor and one of his biggest wishes was to teach the kids to ski. Three weeks after Liva turned three she skied for the first time, on the opening day in Lake Louise ski resort in Canada. Tiuri had learned to ski two years earlier, for three days in A-Basin, USA, and was flying down the hill, great start.

This trip was a combination of skiing and traveling through Canada and USA, in a camper for four and half months.

Liva is a tough cookie, looking like a two year old, but just turned three years. So she got a lot of attention.
