Hiking in the snow

It’s been two nice days of hiking in the Jura and the Alpes … we almost made it to Reculet near Thoiry (Jura mountains) and all the way up to La Laitemaire (Alpes) … in both cases the snow was our biggest enemy. For the latter tour we couldn’t even find the track on the way down … and due to the loose hip-high snow we ended up sliding down snowfields, crossing avalanche fields and walking in ankle deep mud … hmm!
Nice experience and definitely a good test for our new shoes ;)

Fleamarket, Gimbap, Champagne Party and the Jura Mountains

After starting into the weekend with some very nice and tough badminton matches, some Orangina drinking and almost last tram missing, I continued on Saturday with the Plains Palais fleamarket, some troubles to go through to get a drill that has a hammer/action, Korean Gimbap selfmade with my flatmates and a Champagne Party at Troels’ place … almost won the music quiz with my team and went home kind a late.
Still today I woke up fairly early and was convinced to go for a hike in the Jura mountains … unfortunately the bowling that was supposed to give this weekend the proper close, wasn’t at all as good as the mountains … the lanes were quite shitty and they had this cosmic bowling thingy going on … man!
