Magical Morning to Montenvers, Chamonix

Posted in - France & Travelling Me on May 20th 2016 0 Comments IMG_5241

Having spent a spectacular morning yesterday 3,000 metres dizzily high in the mountains at Aguille Du Midi, and not to mention my mildly embarrassing fainting episode from altitude sickness that has been the centre of all jokes, today was a slow and relaxed kind of day. Every day I spend in Chamonix begins with the thought of …

The French Alps were magical and terrifying at the same time. Fortunate for us, we were whisked up to the tops of the mountains via modern and safe cable cars/ gondolas. This post is a couple of photos I snapped in France accompanied by some mountain and climbing quotes.
