As beautiful and polished as Swiss ski resorts go, but lurking in the shadow of the mighty mega-resorts, is the much quieter Villars – a village in the Vaudoise Alps, only 15 miles from Lake Geneva. From December to March Villars turns into a photogenic winter wonderland filled with icicle-laden wooden chalets, frozen forests and snowy mountain peaks…

A huge thank you to London City Airport and Swiss Air.

Born in England, with a few family roots from Bavaria, and a heart in Scandinavia I've always been a bit of a restless soul. My first true adventure began as a six month voyage around South East Asia as a fresh faced backpacker and ever since I've lived a semi nomadic existence, clocking up over 40 countries on trips and living in Dublin, South East Asia and Australia. I'm a lover of US Road Trips, deserted beaches bathed in warm glow of a sunset, Cuban mojitos, easy-on-the-eye travel destinations far away from the tourist crowds and all things Scandinavian - from cloudberry liquors to Scandi Noirs. When not wandering the world, you'll find me walking my rescue dog in leafy South West London, strolling around the Brighton Laines on random day trips, hunting for photogenic landscapes or daydreaming about returning to my all time favourite places in the world; Havana, Copenhagen, Italy, Thailand and the frozen landscapes of a wintry Iceland.
