    Today was the final day of our tour, but sadly we could not hike due to pouring rain. Luckily we are at a nice hotel in an actual town (Charmonix) which is a good place for a day off. We've all been relaxing Ryan on his phone and I spending an enjoyable day reading on the kobo. Mom and dad have just been walking around. That ...

Our final destination was the Col de Forclaz where we checked into the only hotel and organized our rooms - shared washroom and shower again. Not too difficult a day, but different scenery and interesting walk through the forest and farms (with many cows). I swear I think they are following ...

    ... with plenty of spots to charge electrical things. I had a shock when we walked in to find Tegz the only girl in there with 8 ( I counted them!) Hairy Hotties! These were HH of all nationalities, reading, chatting, playing games etc. In fact, when Tegz returned to the Refuge later to drop off some unopened bottles of cider that she didn’t like (they have an area that people can leave unwanted goods) she got a wolf whistle as she walked in wearing Lyn’s waterproof ...
