Post series Walks for my own reference

I—or we—have done so many walks over the past twenty years, that we can often be uninspired when it comes to choosing places to go. This collection of blog posts is mainly intended to provide us with reminders of places we’ve been for walks in the past.

  • A cold walk on the shores of Lac de Neuchâtel, and some lovely pink post-sunset light.

  • Wetterhorn, Grindelwald

    A pleasant, mainly downhill walk in the Grindelwald valley.

  • Faulensee at sunset

    Time to start warming up for hillier walking…

  • The third of our slightly soggy hikes in the English Lake District in autumn 2022.

  • Buttermere in heavy rain

    A wind-swept, soggy, lovely walk around Buttermere in the English Lake District.

  • Hiking amongst the glacial screes

    Walking into the middle of nowhere from the heights of the Furka Pass.

  • I was keen to do more winter hiking this year, and although winter seems to have flown by, I did manage to get out into the snow more often than in previous years. Most recently, we got the big cable-car up from Grindelwald to Eigergletscher with the intention of then getting the short train connection…

  • It’s easy for me to forget that I don’t need to “go somewhere” to enjoy a walk. I sit here and wonder where to go: which cable-car, which lakeside walk, which spectacular valley. This comes of having the great fortune to live within half-an-hour of some pretty wonderful places. But this commonly leads me to…

  • Axalp in the snow

    Axalp in the snow

    Walking in the snowy landscape of Axalp, high above Lake Brienz in the Swiss Bernese Oberland.

  • Spoilt for choice

    With so much to do and so many beautiful places to visit, the choice can sometimes be overwhelming.

  • A pedestrian-only footpath through the woods and cliffs on the southern shore of Lake Brienz.
