After the big European freeze in January, I’d been hoping that my February getaway wouldn’t be problematic, so it was good to see the forecasts for this half-term week looking considerably more promising than feared. It’s going to be a thin year for me here this year, so I don’t want to waste any precious days!
A slightly modified itinerary for getting here from Devon meant I arrived in time for breakfast in Die, food shopping at the market, home-made squash soup for lunch, and a quick spin to Châtillon to take in some Alpine air. As you’ll see from the photos, it all went a bit grey as the day went on, but the small snow flurries were confined to higher ground. I was slightly amused to see that Devon was colder and snowier than Die this morning!
