On vacation in September 2000 I walked around Mt Blanc. The route was 186 km, which I covered in 7 days. This is one of the "classic" walks of Europe and passes through three countries and seven valleys, in what amounts to a large national park. It was a good feeling to do such a long circular walk alone and it felt like an achievement. The views on the French side were spectacular. Tour of Mt Blanc
In 2002 I walked out one morning and kept going up till I became an Accidental Alpinist. I have added 24 photos to the account.
In August 2005 I walked most of the way around Monte Rosa, which is on the Swiss-Italian border, and climbed three 4000 metre peaks. These were the Allalinhorn, the Breithorn and the spectacular Mt Castor (4226m). Tour of Monte Rosa
In March 2009, Les and I went trekking in the South Patagonian Andes
