Kick off for hiking season

Finally, after 4 months I felt my lungs and muscles work hard again. We went to a very deserted area, located 800m above the sea level and then climbed to 1100m. Driving from Luberon to the direction of Banon, you soon observe that the vineyard fields are being replaced by lavender fields, that the size of villages is getting smaller and smaller and the distance between country houses is getting larger and larger. The area doesn't posses any of the extraordinary scenic beauty like it does around gorges and rivers but offers a serenity and silence which is so rare nowadays. We walked mostly quietly, united in our happiness. As always sandwiches, coffee and tea were with us and the picnic not only strengthened our power but also helped create the whole experience of the day.

The perfect Autumn day

Woke up into a beautiful sunny morning and enjoyed my every morning meditation. The MAN in my life is already in the kitchen making the breakfast and the smell of the roasted bread, the freshly ground coffee makes the morning irresistible...and he also makes a fresh orange juice every day:)) I am again thinking about the nowadays' morning magics and compared it to my busy days in Zurich when mornings were more about running to the airport, to the office or to a meeting. Although I miss Zurich a little bit...sometimes? not really! my husband waits for me as we are going for a walk into the hills.
Beyond the strikes, the fuel shortage and other scary news....just the hills and  the sun and the wind on your face
