Some of you have followed my travel adventures for a while and by now you know that I travel many weeks every year. I am lucky to be doing so because I like it. I also like to share it with you.
This year, we had a new adventure. We visited friends in Switzerland. It was my third visit in Geneva. While we were there we went on a day trip to France. In Europe, it is so easy to go from one country to another. Quite different from crossing our borders here in Canada.
I wanted to visit Aix-les-Bains and Annecy. They were both interesting towns. We enjoyed a nice lunch at this restaurant in Aix-les-Bains. The crêpes were delicious and the owner very friendly. It is a custom to drink some cider with the crêpes. And we did!
Aix-les-Bains was an interesting visit as it was market day.
It is possible to buy non-pasteurized milk in a machine. 1 liter costs 1 Euro.
Then, we drove to Annecy, one of the ornaments of Savoie. The purity of the lake and the beauty of its setting compels Annéciens outdoors – in good weather it seems everyone is hanging out in pavement cafes, mountain-gazing along the lakefront, swimming in the lake, or just aimlessly cycling around it. And for us, it was a good day to stroll in the town. The architecture is very nice. I liked particularly walking and looking at the old buildings.
More to come on my travels. Thanks for your visit and comment.
