Wanderlust: The Alps

I've always been more of a beach girl than a mountain girl, but lately I've been admiring large mountain ranges--they offer so much to explore and discover. The Alps have long intrigued me as a distant yet beautiful mountain range with quaint towns and localized culture scattered throughout their massive expanse. The Alps stretch across 8 different European countries (Austria, Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Germany, France and Monaco) and each country adds its own unique culture. I've never visited the Alps, but I would love to take some time to hike through and discover its lakes, breathe its fresh air, meet its people, ski its steep slopes, and explore its beauty.

Beautiful! I love the mountains. I live in Washington State, so there lots of places for hiking & hills & mountains...although it's not like the Alps!

Your blog is great. Following you now!

2. YES! The Alps are amazing! I've been to Chamonix which is where Mount Blanc is, and I definitely felt like I could stay there for the rest of my life.

Yup, Alps are beautiful. I'm from Slovenia and you can see them even from Ljubljana (capital). Amazing.
