Annecy and St Jean Sixt.

A trip back home for a wedding and a hen party was long enough to whet my appetite for more time East of the Atlantic so, after a month back in Texas with my nose to the grindstone finishing off the last of the school year, we dropped off the dog with friends for seven long weeks and returned back to Europe for a Summer full of (yet more) weddings, catching up, parties and some weekend trips further afield

Wanting some quality time with my parents we planned a four day trip to the French-Swiss Border.  Planning to meet a family friend at the airport in Geneva for a night in her beautiful St Jean Sixt Chalet before leaving for a road trip round Lac Leman / Lake Geneva.

Landing early we collected a car and bleary eyed drove from Geneva Airport over the Border and towards Annecy for lunch and a potter

Through beautiful medical french streets,

over bridges,

 and around lakes

And then jumped in the car to drive through the mountains to explore St Jean Sixt

I love ski resorts in the summer. Mountain bikers and hikers galore.

And still just as much Cidre and Tartiflette as your heart desires.

Before all the mountain air and rich food sent us to bed in preparation for a morning hike.

Location: Annency and St Jean Sixt, France.
