This summer, I travelled for one week around the French/Swiss border. Our base for the week was the stunning skiing resort and world-famous mountain biking town of Morzine. From local honey to white water rafting, from extreme mountain biking to relaxing hikes in the forest, this town is a microcosm for European mountain living.
There is nothing like swinging in a chairlift high in the fresh mountain air. It feels like a whole other world compared to the grey rainy days in England! If you have never visited the mountains, or if you have only been for skiing in winter, I would definitely recommend an off-season visit to experience wildlife and mountaintop sun. These photos will bring a blast of summer heat and wild mountains before we settle down for Autumn.
