On our way to Milan we decided to stop by the infamous Courmayeur for a couple of hours. We weren't disappointed! Although Courmayeur wasn't as big and appealing as Chamonix it was a picturesque town with ...
... Hansen etc.) colorful restaurants and bars. The only downside was that due to ''extreme'' snow conditions we couldn't take the Mont Blanc train nor could we see the Montenvers Mer de Glace.
To sum up, I must say I wouldn't recommend Chamonix as a must-see but it's a nice town to spend a few days but definitely not the best place for skiing. ...
... with a bowl of crisps that was enjoyed especially by the kids.
The cheeses were superior to any that we have ever experienced and we are reasonably knowledge about our cheeses and nearly all meat was ham, cured and prepared in hundreds of ways always perfectly thin cut and pristine packaged. Add the infamous baguette and this place was perfect.
We fell in love with Chamonix straight from the ...
Driving in the luxury of the Benz into Charmonix for lunch
and then through the Mont Blanc 11.6km tunnel into Italy is fantastic and we take the road
leading up and over the St Bernard Pass. it's the highest mountain road pass in Europe 2300 meters. Lucas has put that
car through its paces on the twisting turning switchback roads and scared the
**** out of me on the hairpin bends but ...
... quite a fast ride. I am suffering from the altitude and it is very hard to breath and my lips are blue by the time we get to the top. I struggle into the warmth of the cafe and Lucas brings me delicious hot chocolate which revives me. We continue up the stairs to the viewing platform and views are unbelievable and the sight will live with us forever. Not nearly as cold as i thought it would be. Absolutely perfect weather and we can see for 100's of klms.
