    Walking from Bex to Aigle

  • Mountain streams

    Reading Time: < 1 minute Whilst some people are perfectly happy sitting at a desk chatting to others via webcams I prefer to be out and about streaming daily life. Today was one example of what I like to do. I went up to La Dole for a walk with the n95 and streamed a…
