Playing tourist in my backyard. It is good to see with fresh eyes the place you live in. One should stay curious and find the beauty in his home town the way a visitor finds it. You know that wonder, when getting in a new place, and everything is fresh and wonderful? When you take a holiday from routine? You can have that in your home place too! Just go where the crowds go, see what they see and marvel with them. What is your home town at the moment? Mine is Chamonix for the season. I went up to Aiguille du Midi a few times already, but never really stopped half way there, to the lower part. This time I did. I took a few minutes to see the same scenery from a different perspective. And it was brilliant. My face was lit by sun and joy! I made a promise to go again and stay longer. . . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #glacier #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #icecave #discoverearth

Curves. Sexy, is it not? The curves of mountains. Lines. Some softer, others more rigid. Nature is art. Sometimes I just love to let my eyes run along these lines, and curves and contours which seem so perfect in their random imperfection. Why are we so preoccupied with appearance? With being perfect, a perfect defined by some standards, imagined by some people at some point or another in time? Why don't we understand that we are already as perfect as nature in our unique imperfection? Today, look at yourself and give yourself some love. Look the way you would look at a scenery, at the hills and valleys of your body. Do you think this beautiful nature cares how it looks? Do you care? . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

There are these moments when floating above the trees, in the ski lifts, when you just take in the beauty and you feel grateful to be here, alive and witness such beauty. When did you feel like this last time? For me, it was two days ago. . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #chamlive #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

I marvel at the magic that nature is and what it can create. This is inside the glacier Mer de Glace in Chamonix. It is an "Ice cave". The shapes, coulours, the insides of the ice are something I had never seen before at such scale. It is pure magic. Art. And then you wonder how it is possible for us to comprehend all these amazing things around us. How can we have the arrogance to affirm we understand nature and its processess and sometimes think we can even control it. We are small, but we are part of the magic. What do you think? Do we understand nature? . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #glacier #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #icecave #discoverearth

A beautiful day on the slopes. The weather was not great and after workinv from 6am so I didn't feel motivated go uo. But I felt like it! So I went up! And it was magical! The fog, the wind, the mountains... Plus, the fresh snow under the skis was wonderful! There are special moments up there! . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

Some days are black and white. No colours. Lifeless. Some days you feel like just staying in bed and doing nothing. How do you cope? I tried to go out and ski but the day was like this. Ouside and inside as well. After just one slope, I returned home. No point in forcing anything. Nature and human moods have a lot in common, don't you think? But I did feel guilty for not doing anything productive during the day. How do you handle that guilt? How do you bring.color to a grey day? . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

This was my lunch break the other day. That is why I made the sacrifice of moving here and taking a not so exciting job: to be able to enjoy these wonferful outdoors and improve skiing. When you live at the foot of mountains you feel humble all the time. Being able to get up here and delight in these stunning views is truly priceless! #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #womenwhohike #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

Living here, in Chamonix, is humbling. While I go by my day like any other person, going to work, coming home to my beloved, cooking... the small difference is that, when I look up I see the rough mountains just above me. This is what humbles me and makes me feel very grateful to be here, when life gets hard. What brings your spirits up on a hard day? . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #chamlive #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

This is how Aiguille du Midi lookes like on a foggy day. It is something taken from a fairytale! Sometimes I fell that pictures cannot entirely tell the magic story of a place and a moment. What does this picture create in your mind? . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #chamlive #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #montblanc #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #surreal #perfectmoment #mountains #fog #moments #magic #girlscouts #womenempowerment #mysummitstories #discoverearth

I am starting to love fog more than anything else. Did you get some great shots with grey weather? There have been many days like this one in Chamonix valley but I didn't have my camera with me. It has been lost months ago and only now I have a new one I am so happy to be able to capture these magic moments and share them with you. Here, the fog was starting to lift after two days of pouring rain.The curtain was slowly revealing the beauty that has been kept underneath. It is sometimes like life: we know there is beauty behind sorrow but sometimes it is very well hidden. . . . #alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #chamlive #alpsmountaineering #frenchalps #hikingthealps #chamonix #bestofthealps #fog #earthfocus #hikingadventures #alpenliebe #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #perfectspot #wilderness_culture #mountainlife #naturelovers #nature_awe #forest #trail #thatmoment #amazingearth #girlslovetravel #girlscouts #splendid_woodlands #photostory #discoverearth

This is the kind of smile that only the crisp air in the mountains give me. We all have different kind of smiles depending on the situation. There is the smile we give to our lovers, with a twinkle in our eyes; there is the playful smile we give to children, there is the smile we give to strangers on the street, there is the smile we have when we see a good friend and there is the smile we have when we feel cold, with frozen nose, but we see the mountains and we feel so alive! After a week of rainy foggy days in the Chamonix valley, the sun made an appeareance and the mountains revealed themselves from the curtains of fog. And I smiled at the beauty around me! . . . #Alps #thealps #lesalpesfr #savoiemontblanc #chamlive #chamonix #frenchalps #alpenliebe #bestofthealps #lifeofadventure #perfectspot #getoutstayout #naturelovers #mountaingirls #mountains #mountainlife #wilderness_culture #fitgirls #smile #womenwhoexplore #womenwhohike #girlslovetravel #girlscouts #girls #womenempowerment #discoverearth #highmountains #haveabreak #happyme #beautifulwomen

There is no such thing as bad weather, they say. However, the fog is heavy on Chamonix's shoulders and so I spend my hours editing some photos from the Himalayas, also from a foggy day. Those days spent in the Gosaikunda area, were very long. The trek was rather easy, and we finished early, every day. Then, we spent many long hours in the tea houses. It was cold, dark and we would sip tea non stop to quench our empty bellies. We were on a very small budget, and eating in the Himalayan tea houses was somewhat expensive. Now I drink again some tea and dream about those days. What is your favorite activity on a bad, gloomy day? . . . #mountains #nepal #himalayas #trekking #gosaikund #discovernepal #instanepal #fitgirl #happiness #smile #goexplore #visitnepal #naturelovers #backpacking #mountainlover #lovetheoutdoors #hiking #outdoors #naturelovers #womenwhoexplore #mountaingirls #womenwhohike #girlslovetravel #followmefaraway #natureaddict #nepalisbeautiful #explorehimalayas #mtnchicks #girlslovetravel #girlscouts
