A walk in the woods

One of the great things about living in Switzerland is that you are seldom more than a short distance away from some patch of nature.

Both at home in Nyon or at work in Renens, I am only about 5 minutes walk from a nice bit of forest, and we often take advantage of this to go for a walk, run, or bike-ride through them.

This has become especially true this Autumn since we haven't been heading out as often as we normally do because of the weather, but also because the Autumn colours are really amazing!

Of course being Switzerland also means that these patches of nature are not exactly wild - normally you will find the yellow-signposted paths winding their way through any patch of nature - making the whole expedition very safe and easy.

We are looking forward to Winter proper when we can take our snowshoes up the hill behind us into the Jura mountains for some winter walks through the snow up there!
