During winter of 2018-2019, I spent seven months in Chamonix, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in the heart of the French Alps. In June 2019, I went hiking in the Dolomites, the heart of the Italian Alps. The Alps are a very large mountain range spanning across Europe and crossing eight countries. Its summit culminates at 4809 meters at the top of Mont-Blanc. From Chamonix, the summit of Mont-Blanc is clearly visible when the weather permits. The Mont-Blanc chain and that of the Aiguilles Rouges opposite are two mountains made of granite and gneiss, widely traveled in winter by skiers and in summer by hikers and alpinists. Interspersed with glaciers and long valleys, the region fascinates me. The Dolomites on the Italian side, an ancient coral massif, are also very popular in all seasons. Their particular aspect, very rugged, almost architectural, is fascinating to observe.

Glimpses of the Italian Tyrol

At the beginning of June 2019 I embarked on the exploration of the Dolomites. But personal problems forced me to shorten my trip. Here are some photos from my week in Italy.

Interval in Provence

After seven months in Chamonix, I returned to Provence to visit my parents and prepare my next travels.

A breath of Spring

End of my stay in Chamonix. Spring is back, I find motivation again and I take the opportunity to do a few activities.

The black hole

The first months of 2019 are difficult. Winter is passing in Chamonix and I am facing depression.

In the arms of winter

The good weather has passed, the tourists are back in the streets of Chamonix and my morale is playing hide and seek.
