Julienne LaMere gets to attend a resort management conference at a prestigious ski resort in the Colorado mountains.

The author guides us through every corner of this fascinating region, where they have spent much of their time over many years. Gaudi´s Sagrada Familia in Barcelona is one of the most unusual churches in the world, with its melting sand-castle appearance and odd, bubble-shaped spires. Catalonia´s Costa Brava provides stunning views, as the Mediterranean waves clash with the jagged coastline. The stretch of small resort cities along the Costa Brava, which means the Rugged Coast, feels like a world caressed by the heavens. Stand above the rocks and look down to the sweeping coastline, the sea stretching endlessly. Relax at a seaside bar, sipping cocktails. Hike the trails leading from the shore to the hills above. Unlike the tourist-swarmed French Riviera, the Costa Brava is intimate. It´s like discovering a well-guarded secret. There are several busy resort cities, but there are also many quiet and isolated beaches. Some of the prime beach cities include Roses, L´Escala and Blanes. Mountain-climbing destinations, ski resorts, spa villages, Gallo-Roman ruins and prehistoric cave paintings are abundant in the region. Catelonia is marked by breathtaking cliffs, expanses of beaches, and the thriving, hip seaside city of Barcelona. In the Navarre region, men taunt large, dangerous animals for Pamplona´s annual Running of the Bulls. Andorra is its own little world, and not just because it´s a 290-square-mile independent principality (a fifth the size of Rhode Island). Nestled atop some of the highest peaks of the Pyrenees, the principality is filled with amazing architecture, surreal panoramic views, and some of Europe´s finest skiing resorts. Andorra attracts tourists for its duty-free shopping alone. Because many visitors are French and Spanish residents seeking bargains, there is a very authentic European flair to a vacation here. 1.

Henry is a man ready to spend Spring Break with his best friends and their kids in Aspen, Colorado when he gets left with the five-year-old on the plane while the others do some last minute shopping. Delayed by the weather, his friends insist Henry and the boy go on and they will catch up later. A snowstorm is brewing as the plane takes off with 44 passengers and crew headed for the ski resort. When the plane crashes at the top of a 10,000 foot mountain, Henry realizes it is a miracle that almost everyone is alive and unhurt. Deciding to stay on the plane for shelter, most of the passengers are content to await rescue. Then Henry notices a wall of snow above them and that the wreckage is directly in the avalanche path, which would throw the plane off another nearby cliff. He decides that him and the boy are taking their chances elsewhere. Having been on the mountain before, Henry knows there is a cave somewhere on the other side of the peak. He tells the others his plan and asks them to join him. Some do, some don´t. What happens next is an exciting story of survival and adventure and shows what makes a hero. 1. Language: English.
