We have had a great holiday. The weather chucked everything at us - 1/2 metre of fresh snow in about 12 hours, driving rain more commonly associated with August in Scotland & two days of wall to wall sunshine to finish with.
Les Contamines is a lovely village, it still has a traditional alpine feel. The skiing is good & its fairly laid back as french ski resorts go. The views (when visable!) were stunning.
I managed a nostalgic walk up the valley to Notre Dame de la Gorge. We walked through there about 25 years ago, starting out on the Tour de Mt Blanc (the long distance walk around Mt Blanc) on a very hot summers morning. It was a little different on Tuesday afternoon, but very beautiful in the snow.
The apartment was a real find. Very nicely laid out & furnished, right in the middle of the village & just a few minutes drive to the lifts. Flights were OK, all luggage accompanied us on both legs of the journey. Geneva airport on the peak holiday Saturday was the usual cattle market, but I just kept knitting.
Back to school tommorow! I could do with a few more days at home to get my head around everything, but there it is, no chance! Just get on with it!
