This is the tale of my 6-month journey across 26 borders in Europe in early 2017, to discover how borders evolve, what they mean and how they impact people’s lives.Written in summer 2017, while living outside the UK.
In trip no.6 I travel to the French and Italian Alps and try to summit the highest peak in the EU. From over 4,000m I reflect on how physical borders like mountain ranges and seas (like the English channel) impact the people and communities living near those borders, and the impact of de-bordering and re-bordering when significant infrastructure, like tunnels or walls, are built.
