Take the water to the mountain

I have been roaming a lot in mountainous environments that are very close to large bodies of water. I am not used to this vicinity of water and mountain but it is particularly beautiful and soothing.

I have spent a week in North Wales at the end of April. I had surprisingly good weather trekking in Snowdonia National Park and visiting astonishing medieval castles. The newly born lambs were very cute in the fields and delicious with mint jelly in the plate. I was delighted to meet up with ILRI former colleague Peter Thorne; we walked up Snowdon together.

Only last week end, I went on tour with Choeur Varenne to Montreux and Lausanne in Switzerland. We got to admire the Alps surrounding Lake Léman and tasted a delicious Swiss cheese fondue. The weather was again outstanding.

My next holiday will again mingle a mountainous peak surrounded by water. Stay tuned to discover where that will be...
