Helicopter ride in Switzerland
Just back from two great days in Switzerland, tasting wines from 25 of the country's leading producers. As well as the surprisingly (and uniformly) high quality of the wines, the highlight of the trip was a helicopter flight over some of the spectacular vineyards of the Chablais region, followed by a hair-raising but spectacularly beautiful buzz over the top of the alps. The picture here is me, taken by fellow passenger Sam Harrop. For one of the aerial views of the vineyard, see the photo of the week. I'll be blogging more about our Swiss experiences in the following days.
