In the Easter holiday, many families and friends travel up to the mountains where we live in cottages/cabins and take ski trips of course.
When we go for a longer ski trip we usually take a break during the trip. In the break we eat oranges and a chocolate bar which is called “Kvikk Lunsj”. In English it means: a quick lunch. We often sit in the snow and try to get a little tan. As you see in the picture.
