... Mont Blanc which I believe is about 4,800 metres. The town of Chamonix is at the base of it and is a major ski village in winter, and a base for hikers, mountain bikers and tourists in summer. We got there late one afternoon and planned the next day for me to go up the Auguille du Midi cable car to see Mont Blanc up close and for Phillip to go for a ride up some of the smaller peaks in the area. The next morning we woke to heavy rain which ...

... pure shunting through towns, particularly Freiburg where we saw an actual shunt, a woman having driven into the back of a man, and doing her best to blame him. It reminded me, with our limited language skills (though Liza's German isn't bad) how difficult a situation that could prove for us. Sat nav, as ever, got us through it all. Serena, what a girl.

Hence we only spent a couple of hours looking around before ...

... was good but just as we finished we was a storm coming across the lake. It started to rain and all of the patrons of the restaurant who were eating outside rushed inside as the wind came up and it started to pour. When the storm was over we called for a taxi and headed back to the hotel.

Getting back to the hotel, Melody went up to the room and the rest of us had a night cap and desert before turning in for the night. We plan to meet downstairs for breakfast at ...

A Day around the Lake

... long ago. It reminded me of a modern-day cruise ship - though it was scary to read that they had actual dedicated smoking facilities on a hydrogen-filled dirigible!

After the museum, we went to the lakeshore to climb the Moleturm, an open staircase leading to a lookout tower. Nice views of the town and the Lake. We spent a little more time wandering the town, and found a Zeppelinbrunnen - a fountain with an airship motif. But it ...
