On top of the world

It is nice when the world reminds me again of why I called this blog ‘On top of the world’ in the first place.

It is this amazing thrill of climbing a mountain, working your way to the top, taking in the absolute beauty of mountain nature all around you.

Last week brought us to the top of ‘Le Grand Donon’, a top of a little bit more than a thousand meters of elevation in the far northeastern corner of France. It was a slightly different trip than I am used to, as the circumstances where slightly different from ideal.

It was snowing. It was freezing. It was incredibly windy. And yet, it was incredibly amazing.

I guess we stood on top of the world for a while – before being blown off by the wind – but the mist did not allow us to take in the view.

And yet, it was for a while the top of the world, and I adored it.
