This Saturday I spent the day in a beautiful mountain town towards Switzerland. It's not a very big town so there wasn't much to do for more than a day but it was a great day trip! We left Lyon at 7am, got there at 9am and then left around 6:30pm.
We started the day looking at the lake which is surrounded by mountains. It was so pretty and the water was so clear you could see all ...

The ice cave in the glacier was illuminated with different colored lights but I (Tasha) preferred the natural lighting at the opening of the cave. Parts had frozen so fast the ice was completely clear. At the end our long day, we decided we deserved a beer, so we went with Liv and Freddy to a cute bar in town.

Being in Annecy felt like I was in a Disney movie of sorts. I hope I can go back one day in the summer because I can only imagine how fun it would be, but definitely glad I got to see this beautiful town over the winter in all it's wonderland magic.
... noticed that there were markers at every kilometer to tell you how many km were left, how high you were, and the grade over the next km. At first these were informative, but it didn't take long for them to become annoying. I mean really, do I need to know that I’ve only gone 5km and I’m facing a 10% grade and I’m already feeling like this was a bad idea? Half way into the climb I reached the town of Le Reposoir.
