Camping by Lake Annecy. Bit grey on arrival but remnants of today's storm look cool blowing over peaks on other side.

Short stroll this morning by the shores of Lake Geneva. A dip might have been tempting last night, but not right now!

Yesa Reservoir: Sea of the Pyrenees. Sadly seems there's been no 'sea' here for years. Quite surreal landscape today.

Just back from hols mostly riding in mountains & by lakes. What to do? Cycle Lac d'Estaing for more of the same! grin

Friday 8 July 2022

Nice spin in Parc naturel regional des Volcans d'Auvergne. Quite a mouthful! But great park could spend more time in.

Tuesday 5 July 2022

Sunset at Lac de Vaivre. Parked up in a quiet spot by this lake. Very nice & thankful it's still not peak season smile

Sunday 3 July 2022

Time to leave Lake Lucerne... really love this place. Last of the views on the road above Weggis. Tschuss!

Onwards & upwards as they say! Last part of today's hike via Windegghutte. Few chains on this climb. Awesome route!

Wednesday 29 June 2022

The Trift Bridge. Because why wouldn't you build a rope crossing between cliffs above a glacial lake? A. Maze. Ing!!!

Sunday 26 June 2022

Random shots from today's little drive along Lake Maggiore. Feriolo then coffee stop in Intra. Another glorious day.

... and so we find ourselves on the shores of Lake Orta. Quite pretty with some hills around. Weather seems OK. Phew!

Monday 20 June 2022

Tuesday 7 September 2021

Messing around on the shores of Lac de Matemale smile

Tuesday 15 September 2020

On the shores of Untersee. We were last guests of the season in this campsite & they gifted us the stay! Danke! smile

Thursday 3 October 2019

Little forest walk to the shore of Brombachsee.

Monday 30 September 2019

Sunset by Chiemsee. Spectacular! Feel like we could be on a Pacific island - if not for Alps on the horizon wink

Monday 30 September 2019

More random pics from a lakeside campsite. Gotta love out of season travel - this place would be packed in summer!

Friday 20 September 2019

Random stop for lunch overlooking Lac de Serre-Poncon. It's not about the destination... smile

Monday 15 July 2019

Stunning Lac d'Artouste. 2000m up, but with the sunshine today & that crystal clear water, feels almost tropical.

Saturday 29 June 2019

When your teenage guest is missing the beach... we find ourselves at Lac de Lourdes. I'll admit water was lovely in.

Friday 20 May 2016

Things to do this arvo, so little spin up the Aspin & to Lac de Payolle was all there was time for today. Oh well! wink

Ride from the Med coast up brutal climb (20%+ ramps), past vineyards, a castle & lakes. You know, the usual stuff wink

Rainbow over Lac de Longemer. And the view a few minutes later. Wow! Loving this place!

Lac de Longemer: what a spot! Roads here are awesome, but there's baguette & cheese to be eaten before any riding! wink

Saturday 2 May 2015

Morning stroll by the lake shore next to Castle Howard. Saying hello to some of the locals along the way... quack!

Just back from breakie looked out the window to see amazing light on the lake. Wow! It's so beautiful here. So lucky!

Saturday 21 March 2015

Nyepi day in Bali. Silent at dawn. We cannot leave hotel today so booked one with large grounds. So beautiful here.

Tuesday 5 August 2014

Lunch spot: Refugi de Juclar. Nippy at around 2300m up. Lake next door would be prettier if it hadn't been drained sad

Tuesday 22 July 2014

9km later... back down by Lac du Tech. Such a nice way to spend a few hours.

Tuesday 18 September 2012

This morning's ride was round a misty Lake Como. Menaggio to Bellagio. Shots on the ferry back home. Nice way to end.

Sunday 16 September 2012

Sitting on the balcony at dusk, looking across at the lights on the other side of Lake Como. Nice way to 'unwind' wink

Saturday 15 September 2012

Arrived in Menaggio & love the view. A few shots straight off the balcony. 12/85/300mm (DX) if you're wondering wink

Saturday 15 September 2012

In Italy, but had a look up a valley into Switzerland as we passed. Lakeside train station here: nice waiting room!
