On Top of the World!

A holiday which smelled of hot chocolate, cheese fondue and French baguettes. A holiday with a panoramic view. The French Alps are truely breathtaking. We stayed in the valley of Les Deux Alpes which is a two hours' drive from Lyon and after Grenoble. The glacier is higher than 3400 meters and the temperature -13 degrees celsius with an occasional wind which varied up to 80 km per hour! It can be reached by a funiculaire which is an underground train shuttle like the ones you find in mines but more sophisticated. You can easily get high altitude sickness. We got dizzy a few times and our noses were bleeding once in a while.

There is a lot of snow and it is always sunny.

Ironically, the clouds just stay at the bottom of the valley.
