Scottish Ice Trip - Day 7The all white day...
It was a promising sight when I first peered out of the window this morning. Beyond the wet glass and besides a constant tapping of the rain, the mountains across the bay were covered in snow. Well, the temperature decided to drop at last. Our destination in the Glen Coe range was about two-hour walk away. But as I tried to catch as much as a glimpse of where we were heading, all I could actually see was a decently steep and long snow slope ahead of us, disappearing into white.
From surgery to climbingIt's already been two months since I had my knee surgery…
After some good physiotherapy near my home in Bourg St Maurice, I came to a special rehabilitation center for sports athletes in Capbreton, on the west coast of France.
At the moment that I write this post, I'm still here, chilling on my balcony in the sun, facing the Ocean.
But, despite how it sounds, it's not all holidays here…
