2017, Summer holidays have finally come and we planned to visit one of my favorite areas in France: French Alps.
Travel bag packed, we took the road to the mountains for a little roadtrip.
First stop: the romantic city of Annecy.
We had so much fun going paragliding from the col de la Forclaz!
What an breathtaking experience to discover the landscape from above... Tiny pine trees, blue sky above, blue lake under.
After this amazing experience and some sunburns on our faces, we went to visit our lovely friends in the massif des Bauges.
Walk with the dogs, horse-riding, photoshooting, firecamp in the garden, what a wonderful time!
Time to say goodbye until the next visit, and we went back on the road, to reach another part of the Alps: the massif de la Chartreuse.
We have discovered a hidden place in the mountains, an enchanted location: the Cirque de Saint-Même.
It is a very touristic place in summer, but luckily the area was almost empty and we were alone in the wild, walking in the wood until the gigantic waterfall.
After a full day spent under the rain, discovering each little part of the wood, we joined the south of this massif.
That day, the blue sky was enchanting the landscape.
Out of the forest, we went hiking some famous peaks of the Chartreuse, like the Charman Som which allowed us to see the Mont Blanc over the clouds,
and the Pinea which offered a breathtaking view on the Grenoble valley. The wind was so strong we couldn't stay for long!
These holidays were an excellent break from work, between city and nature, friends and outdoors activities.
I love mountains, it's always a perfect retreat for the mind and to find inspiration. It was also the good opportunity to train my filmmaking skills!
