I love these Alpine relief maps. I'd been looking on the internet for a while to buy one and they have them here in Chamonix for €95. Unfortunately they are about 1.5M square!
A cracking view toward the Italian Alps from the gondola that goes to the Punta Helbronner peak in Courmayeur.
Weather station at Punta Helbronner. I thought it looked cool.
A beautiful old SWB Landie in cream.

God forbid you leave Switzerland and find out there is a nationwide chocolat shortage en France. Pas probleme, right next to the border control is this handy store to the rescue. My producer went in for a bag of crisps. They didn't have any. But they did have chocolate, and cow bells. I think there's a gap in the market here.
...where all those delicious little chocolate bunnies come from at Easter? Well check out this giant beast I found roaming the valley below the Matterhorn (where, by the way, miners excavate Toblerone day and night).
