Walking on the Slopes- A Photo Essay from Switzerland

verbier

OK, prepare yourself for a long row of photos from Switzerland and the surroundings of Verbier where we stayed. We went out hiking every single day except one when it rained, some days it was hard and we came back destroyed but happy, other days it was light and we came home happy. We picked lots of wild strawberries and even some wild blueberries, we saw cows and cows and cows and it was lovely to be there on the sloping sides of the mountains. We went up and we went down, on winding paths or small roads, always moving forward, a bit like all those cows now when I come to think of it. There is something about walking that I really enjoy, it relaxes me and you can choose if you want to think or just exist and take in the scenery, the times when I distance myself from my being are invaluable because I need to forget about myself now and then, it’s like going on vacation! I get so fed up with myself now and then that I’m happy when I can take those ‘trips’! Enough, now I will let the photos speak, I hope you will enjoy them:
