Ailefroide 2011

By , August 7, 2011 4:07 am

I’m fat again so there was no climbing this year but my holidays usually feel like mini expeditions so it was actually a refreshing change.  I managed a lap of the VTT track and took Lucas on his first Via Ferrata, apart from that we spent the rest of our time either sunbathing, walking or drinking […]
