Further afield
I'm back to this little aul country of ours - I had a wonderful time - the June bank holiday I was walking in the West Highlands of Scotland and having experienced the delight of the remote Glen Etive, and climbing above Kinlochleven and Glen Coe, I drove back to Dublin, jumped on a plane and flew to Zurich, 3 hours later by train I was standing in the beautiful town Meiringen, home of the Meringue and also the Reichenbach Falls where Sherlock Holmes and Moriarty had their famous fight. The Swiss have it sussed, every junction there is a sign directing you across alpine meadows, passed many cows, through forests, along ridges, across waterfalls, and of course.... across frozen rivers, glaciers the list is endless! So many ambitions have been fulfilled - crossing the Aletsch Glacier at over 3450 m above sea level at -5 deg C, passing below the famous peaks such as the Eiger, Monck, and Jungfrau, walking below the Weterhorn, the Wellhorn, watching an avalanche thunder it's way down the side of the mountains. Wow, wow, wow Bleck my friend my visa was hit but that was only in the gift shops, had I not gone in there the holiday was very reasonable in price - but the experience far out weighed the cost!!
