Here are some things I learnt recently whilst walking in the Swiss Alps:
- It is unprofitable to lead if you do not know the way.
- The slowest walker sets the pace.
- When you’re wrong, you’re wrong – even when you’re right.
And on a slightly different note – the tour guide, on the way up into the mountains, pointed to the left and said, “… and this will be the last thing you will see.” A few seconds later, he followed this up with, “… a great many people die here.”
I was left hoping that those two statements were not, in any way, connected!
