the straight and narrow

IMGP7183Actually, in this case, not so straight: last week we went hiking in the Swiss Alps where it’s particularly important to stay on the marked path and leave no trace. If everyone walked wherever they felt like there soon wouldn’t be any soil left, and without soil there would be no Alpine meadows, which means there wouldn’t be any cows grazing there, and no cows equals no Swiss milk, WHICH WOULD MEAN THERE WOULDN’T BE ANY SWISS MILK CHOCOLATE!!!

So respect and protect the environment, people!


three carefully curated photos from my holiday in Switzerland last week

Doesn’t it look like snow got hungry and decided to have a little snack?
