Chamonix One

by Sarah Morton January 27, 2015

Having just landed in Scotland after my first of many trips to Chamonix this winter season, my early-morning travel-induced brain fog is making it tricky to recall everything I’ve been up to recently!

One thing I’ve really enjoyed was travelling with one, single, small, lightweight backpack. What a joy! Unless you travel on a regular basis it’s perhaps quite difficult to understand just how irritating it gets having to trawl loads and loads of luggage all over the place. And no matter how hard I try, I just can’t travel light – more than ten years of lugging luggage has definitely taken its toll. The second thing I really enjoyed today, was a Starbucks – white mocha with lashings of cream and caramel syrup. Divine. I’m clearly way too Americanised to ever live full time in France…

Alps Part Deux

by Sarah Morton September 11, 2014

So, that’s my Alpine season complete. After two months – which has literally disappeared, I’m back in Scotland wondering what to do with myself. It’s been a great summer, and I’m so lucky to have spent it in such amazing places – Chamonix, Arolla, Saas Fee, Montreux, and I’m sure many other places I’ll be reminded of when I look … Continue reading

Alpine Climbing – Dents du Midi

by Sarah Morton January 08, 2014

Passing the three-hour sign at Lac de Salanfe, along the Dent du Midi trail, I was feeling rather smug – having athletically trotted up the steep-ish first section of the trail, I thought; how clever we were to have delayed our leaving from base until the cool evening set in. Four hours later, glacier-blue mountain lakes, and lush-green Alpine meadows, … Continue reading

Travel, Travel, Travel!

by Sarah Morton April 19, 2013

Having complained about doing no travelling for a few months, the stars turned in my favour and since January I seem to have done nothing but travel – so much in fact, that my feet have barely touched the ground! My first trip was back out to Chamonix, in the French Alps, for a few weeks – my plan was … Continue reading

January 2013

by Sarah Morton February 19, 2013

The realisation that I hadn’t left the UK in about six months hit me quite hard – I love travelling and although I’ve done more than my fare share recently – it’s all been pretty much in Scotland, so I was very relieved to get out to the Alps in January – the Alps are one of my favourite places … Continue reading
