Since everyone seems to come out with a Best of 2012 list at the end of the year, I thought I would list my top 10 most viewed posts this year.
Everything You Don’t Need And Can’t Live Without – I don’t like to sit still, don’t nap and hate to be bored. I realize that it doesn’t always make me the most relaxing person to be around, but it’s generally pretty entertaining. When we had a free Sunday, I decided to go check out a little shindig they had going on in the cool Carouge neighborhood. Unexpectedly, this post was selected for Freshly Pressed.
More Pictures of the Versoix, Switzerland Ice Storm– Remember the picture of the frozen car? Well, since it was taken in a suburb of Geneva, I couldn’t help myself. I went to get the shot. On a side note, it would have been smart of me not to wear high heals when doing so. A couple of nice Swiss gentlemen helped me off the ice. Yep, I’m an idiot, but the pictures are great.
In Courmayeur, we saw Mt. Blanc from the Italian side. Our hotel near Mageve, had a beautiful view of it from the French side. We were in an area known as the “Pays du Mont Blanc”. Translated, it means the country of Mt. Blanc. It is a group of villages and resorts perched along valleys at the foot of the Domes de Miage, the Aiguille du Bionnassay and the east side of Mont Blanc. It is on the bordering Haute Savoie and the Savoie regions/departments of France. Megeve, St Gervais and Les Contamines are located in the “Pays du Mont Blanc”.
The area has wonderful views of the Mont Blanc Massif. I don’t know if I will ever get used to panaromas like this. I kept running out on the balcony to snap pictures as the light changed. Quel beaute! Quel joie!
