Did You Go Anywhere Different This Year?

By Annie

I did!
All thanks to Gillie.My lovely friend asked if I would like to go on holidaywith her and her sons and two of their friends.
 ( Her sons even decided which room I would have,
and they chose the Balcony room.  Loved it.)
 Oh my word ....Of course I would.How lovely of her and her sons.
Gillie has a fabulous  chalet in

La Clusaz.

View as we sat on the  side veranda ..

Etale is a mountain of Savoie and Haute-Savoie, France
It lies in the Aravis Range of the French Prealps
 and has an elevation of 2,484 metres above sea level.
Every night we sat on the veranda and just took it all in..

 It is absolutely fabulous. And even though it is well known as
a Ski resort , the Summer season is just as busy. So much
to do.  Plenty of shops (Chocolate shops too)   a super weekly market ,
supermarkets,restaurants and walks. It is not far from
Lake Annecy either. As you can see from the map below.
The nearest airport is Geneva which is about 27 miles.
It is a ski resort in the Alps near the Swiss border. The commune of La Clusaz is part of the Haute-Savoie department La Clusaz has been hosting winter sports since 1907. It is the birthplace of famous French skiers Guy Périllat and Vincent Vittoz and sailor Philippe Monnet. Based in the Aravis mountain range La Clusaz (originally from the word cluse - meaning a narrow path between two mountains) was once called Clusa Locus Dei meaning God's narrow place.

Still went to France but a totally different holiday and area.

Big thank you to my friend and boys.
 I actually went to a few different places this year. I was very lucky indeed.
I have been trying to do a blog post continuing with Austria but having problems
exporting my photos from my phone .. I will get it sorted.
