2 out of 2 – 2013 Monthly Bivi Challenge

Yesterday I descended from the bright and sunny Alps in order to do two things:

1. Drop Nikki and Amelie off at the train station in Chambery for their week back in blighty.

2. To head out for a day/night/day in the hills to tick off my February Bivi trip (yes, I’d left it a little late!).
