    Val Ferret Day 5

    August 19, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Hiked the 14km (8.6 mi) from Courmayeur to the Italian Val Ferret. It's a steep climb but the rewarding views are worth it.

    Laced the hiking boots back up!

    A long way to go

    September 1, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    On se souviendra :
    De la dernière vue de Montréal lors de notre départ vers Reykjavik.
    Du stop à Amsterdam et du nouveau départ vers Genève.
    Du stress de ne pas avoir le flixbus à Genève.
    De la petite chambrette de l'hotel Cristallo !
    Et d'une bonne nuit réparatrice !

  • Day9


    August 9, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Ai piedi del maestoso Monte Bianco, salita alla punta Helbronner mancata causa maltempo e visibilità pessima. Tuttavia un'ottima cena a base di bistecche, senape e porcini fritti ce la ricorderemo lo stesso, anche per il conto!Read more

    D21 - TMB La Fouly to Refugio Bonatti

    July 25, 2019 in Italy ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    TOP 3 Highlights:

    1. Marmots - well perhaps not plural, but we did spot a single marmot running away into its burrow.

    2. Col de Ferrat - a highlight, literally. This was on just day 2, a huge pass of 2537m above sea level, then dropping us drastically (and dramatically) into the depths of the next valley. The wild flowers had me in fits of excitement, particularly when I found the vivid blue Gentians, a prized characteristic of the Swiss Alps!

    3. Freezing River Water - the most rejuvenating thing one can do in the middle of the day, soak the weary feet in the icy spring water. Don’t mind the cows sitting up stream on the banks keeping their cool...

    It was a long day...

    GIORNO 13 : Val Veny

    August 11, 2018 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 13 °C

    V : Destinazione Francia ma siamo stati bloccati al traforo del Monte Bianco Chiuso per code. Nella Sfortuna, come spesso accade, abbiamo fatto tappa in Val Veny. Valle spettacolare ai piedi del monte Bianco che ci ha offerto un cielo stellato senza eguali.Read more
