I have recently changed my blog away from solely fashion and started to get into topics that inspire me. I will be featuring lots of lifestyle and travel related posts including everything from places to visit, things to do and places to eat all of course on a budget. I have recently wrote about a short trip to Dublin and I have decided to post some of my previous visits from cities and towns we visited as I have some lovely places I’d like to share.
Whilst on a trip to Geneva to visit friends, they took us over the border into France to spend the day in Annecy. It was a gorgeous summer day and after strolling around the beautiful town, we took a boat onto the lake. This is the first time I’d actually ever been to France and I am so grateful to have seen such a lovely place.
This idyllic town is in such a beautiful setting with stunning scenery and gorgeous architecture, it is definitely somewhere worth seeing if you are visiting the country. We visited in early summer and it was the perfect temperature, warm air and slight breezes meant walking around wasn’t too hot but sitting outside a cafe was totally perfect to soak up the atmosphere and sunshine. After some light lunch, we took to the lake Annecy and spent an hour taking in the beautiful views and wishing we had a little more time to explore the area.
On the lake you have such a variety of scenery, there are stunning views of the mountains encapsulated by a sea of luscious green and beautiful buildings nestled in the foot of the mountains and around the lake. The sound of the calm water gives you that slightly serene feeling and I definitely had one of those moments where it felt like I had nothing on my mind, a moment of peace.
I took lots of pictures to capture the beauty of Annecy and I hope the photos do it justice. I would love to visit some other quirky French villages and towns, does anyone have any recommendations?
