Simon adores ALPES

The first ever time I went abroad, I travelled to the French ski town of St Gervais-les-Bains (see link) which by an incredible coincidence is one of my names.

Anyway, I fell in love with both St. Gervais and with Les Alpes generally.  So here are just a few pictures giving a flavour of my love of mountains.  In the last couple of years, I have also visited the Italian part of the Alpine chain known as the Dolomites and a page is available for you to view.
