Hiking










My Parisian working girl body very much needed some pure air and exercise.
We started slow with some long walks along the torrents passing through beautiful villages, and the we intensified rhythm and difficulties.
My parents met on the Mont Blanc, my father was a climber, my mother a skier. One of the mysteries of genetics:I have never been much into sports! But, in my late thirties, I am starting to crave for some physical activity.
And let's be honest, taking photos makes hiking much more fun!

Ça a l'air magnifique comme endroit! Je pourrais regarder les deux photos qui présentent une vue d'ensemble pendant des heures!
J'aime beaucoup l'avant dernière photo avec le petit radeau près de la berge. C'est adorable.
Tu as tout à fait raison. J'ai des problèmes de genou et je ne fais pas de sport, mais je suis prête à grimper haut avec deux appareils et plusieurs objectifs pour prendre des photos!

very beautiful, the first one especially so! I know exactly what you mean (although my parents are both exercise-dodgers too) I hate sport as such, but love to ramble, swim in lakes or cycle just to get myself moving!
