Traveling from Chamonix to Lake Annecy we went through some breathtaking views through the Alps. The city is quite gorgeous, a favorite Lakeside destination for French families in summer.

We also actually got to ...
... cathedral, it has a replica of the Shroud of Turin because it used to house the real one, After the cathedral, I decided it was lunchtime and treated myself to a 3 course meal at a Italian restaurant (and thankfully I wasn't the person eating by themselves). I had a tomato and mozzarella "salad" which was yummy, spinach tortellini with a cream sauce and goat cheese, and super rich chocolate ice cream. I got some ...
