the climb up there was, the view wasn't too bad either. The view from Lake Tavaneuse
Aware that you all may be fed-up of receiving these emails now and bored of my holiday snaps (as if you could ever be!), I’ll keep this one brief.

I went to Geneva for the weekend, hired a cheap car, got upgraded to a 4x4 for free, so was happy about that. Stayed with some friends in Geneva, didn’t see the city, went mountain walking (climbing more like) in France, Portes du Soleil area and also went to Yvoires on the shores of Lake Geneva.

It was beautiful/pretty/spectacular/French/Swiss/Apline/Heidi/chocolatey all at the same time.
Oh and I flew from City airport for the first time which is fun as I could see my house when I landed.

There, that wasn’t so painful, wait until next month when I go back to China, then I might get a bit more verbose again.

That's the name of the town by the way

For all you Londoners, this is where a 4x4 should be used, off road (well, ok, it's only on the grass but you get the idea).

Ok, it may look the shortest route, but it was very steep

From Lake Geneva the Finland station. Anyone guess the song? Yvoires on the lake, very pretty if a little touristy

Sadly a little misty, but still not a bad view for lunch
