Vi började dagarna med en stadig frukost, man behöver mycket energi för att vandra. Hotellet vi bodde på, Heliopic Sweet & Spa, hade en god och varierad frukost. Det är första gången som jag på hotell kokar mina egna ägg :) På frukosten fanns det en maskin med kokande vatten som man lade äggen i. Varje ägg hade en egen "korg" så du visste vilka ägg var dina. Det fanns många olika bröd och bakverk, ostar, charkuterier, yoghurt, frukt m.m. De hade även glutenfritt bröd.
Längs med vandringslederna kan man hitta mysiga stugor som serverar kaffe och ätbart. En dag stannade vi till vid en stuga och satt vid den öppna brasan och drack kaffe och åt citroncrepes.
We have been hiking in Chamonix on our holiday. We took the flight to Geneva, and then went by car over to the French side to Chamonix. By car it takes a little more than an hour. The last time we were on a hiking trip was in Hong Kong and before that we were in Montreux. It's something special about being in nature, the forest and the mountains, you get a calm that is not experienced elsewhere. All you hear are the sounds of nature, birds chirping, the wind sound from the trees and your own breath. The weather in Chamonix during the time we were there was colder than usual, but it did not bother us, you get warm when you hike and walk over uneven ground that it even is nice to have crispier and colder weather. And as it is said, there is no bad weather, only bad clothing. During the time we were hiking did not rain, the rain came later in the afternoon or evening. We will definitely be back.
We started the day with a hearty breakfast, you need a lot of energy when hiking. The hotel we stayed at, Heliopic Sweet & Spa, had a good and varied breakfast. It is the first time that I am in a hotel and you have to boil your own eggs :) At breakfast, there was a machine with boiling water where you put the eggs. Each egg had its own "basket" so you knew which ones was yours. There were many different breads and pastries, cheeses, meats, yogurt, fruit, etc. They also had gluten-free bread.
Along the trails one can find cozy cottages that serves coffee and edibles. One day we stopped at a cottage, and sat by the fireplace and drank coffee and ate lemon crepes.
I found yummy wild strawberries along the trails.
Jag åt goda smultron längs med vägen.
Snacks that we took along, dried mango from Mother Earth
Snack vi hade med, torkad mango från Mother Earth
