Chamonix, France

October 8, 2022

After a long day (setting off at 5am) we arrived in Chamonix in the early evening where we met with the owner of the Air BnB apartment that is to be our home for the next couple of months.  After a brief tour of our bijou (when in France!) apartment, we headed out for a celebratory beer and dinner at the nearby  Monkey Bar and Canteen and left the unpacking for another day.

The next day we were ready to explore the town and get settled into our new home (which it is not an exaggeration to say is only a tiny bit bigger than ‘The Beast’ for those of you who followed our travels previously).   However, it has been beautifully kitted out, has everything we need, is in a superb location just a stone’s throw from the town centre and the Aguille du Midi lift and has a lovely balcony overlooking the river and mountains, perfect for a sneaky sundowner.

For those of you who are not familiar with Chamonix, it is incredibly beautiful,  with fresh mountain air and fantastic views dominated by the Bosson glacier which hangs above the town.

The weather we were greeted with was absolutely fabulous with temperatures in the mid 20’s, blue skies and bright sunshine.

    Looking forward to reading your blog and seeing where you go. Chamonix is very beautiful as you say. And skiing down the Vallee Blanche from the Agui do Midi is very scary. Take care. Paul

      I’ve managed to have some fairly hairy moments hiking around here. Never take the mountains for granted! Great to have you on board.

    That’s incredible! I would challenge anyone to take a bad photo in Chamonix – I bet it’s impossible…
