the Alps according to Instagram

(follow me on Instagram 'sweetharvestmoon')


First, I want to thank all of you for all the great and encouraging comments on this blog. This little place turned 1 two days ago and I couldn’t be happier. Thank you!

Here are finally some pictures of my vacation in de French/Swiss Alps. Editing these pictures made me miss it even more. As usual I’m experiencing ‘post-mountains blues’ and I can’t wait to go back in July.

As you can tell from the pictures I had a wonderful time. Nobody on the slopes, lots of snow and sun but, holy smoke, it was cold (-26C/ -15F)! Even my super expensive GORE-TEX gloves couldn’t keep me warm (but the many hot chocolate stops did).

Before leaving I made this amazing mixtape, including the new First Aid Kit album, Bon Iver, Ben Howard and many more…, that made the eight hour drive less long.


Have a relaxing Sunday,
Sara

  11. wow, jealous. i haven't snowboarded in several years and i do miss it. i don't really have an excuse except that i'm a cheap bastard! someday i would love to visit the alps. i saw them from afar in switzerland, but i've never been up in the mountains for real :) i'm not jealous of those temperatures, however. i basically don't leave the house if it dips below 0F around here...
