The A Walk in the mountains series

Another walk in the French mountains from this summer. Le Touret is a natural belvedere overlooking the village of Le P√©rier, in the¬†√Čcrins National Park.

This was a sunny, warm summer day. We parked the car at Le Périer, and began the ascent from the south, along the river Le Tourot. The path was rocky, and we were quickly surrounded by insects of all kinds, including a lot of butterflies.

√Öland, land of dragonflies

√Öland, land of dragonflies

This is no ordinary blogpost…

You wanna fly
So you drag on flies
Drag on dragonflies

No, this song doesn’t have anything to do with the rest of this post. No, it’s not a masterpiece either. But I like it, and seeing so many dragonflies in √Öland this summer made it pop into my mind. When I came home, I knew I had to include it in my road report. This is presumably a song denouncing the abuse of drugs, especially heroin. However, for most of the song, the lyrics do not make any sense. Then again, it’s an Edguy song!¬†¬†Remember, drug is bad.
