Last February 2012, Wira, 2 of our friends and me went to Mont-Blanc. No...we didn't climb the mountain, but we went to the closest place so it feels like the Mont Blanc within our reach. We went to place called Chamonix-Mont-Blanc. We took the train from Gare Cornavin. On the way, we have to change trains twice. It takes almost 3 hours to get there.
From Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (1030 m) we took 2 téléphérique to L'Aiguille du Midi (3842 m). First téléphérique went from Chamonix Mont-Blanc (1030 m) to Plan de L'Aiguille (2317 m) and it takes 10 minutes. The second téléphérique took us from Plan de L'Aiguille to L'Aiguille du Midi (3777 m) for another 10 minutes. And then we can continue the journey with elevator until it reaches 3842 m. When we went there, the téléphérique going up open from 8:10 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. And the last téléphérique return was 4:30 p.m. The return ticket price for was € 45.60. Always check the schedule and ticket price in here because it changes with the seasons.
A small town just across the border from Grand Saconnex. We can even walking to this town from where I live now. We go there to buy our grocery because it's a lot cheaper there than in Geneva. Because our limited budget, we have to shop smart.
I think this small town is quite lovely. Suburban typical town. The old house look pretty. Even the chateau and the cemetery look old and nice.
Every Saturday, there is a farmer's market held out in this town. You can find almost anything in this market. If you looking for a fresh vegetables or fruits, you can find it in here. Sometimes we buy our vegetables, fruit and bread in here if we're not to lazy to get up in the morning. The farmer's market open from 5 a.m till 1.30 p.m.

Pertama kali pergi main ski waktu ikut pertukaran pelajar tahun 1993-1994. Ya...18 tahun yang lalu. Waktu itu diajak oleh host sister & host brother. Bukan pengalaman yang menyenangkan karena langsung main dari atas gunung padahal berdiri diatas ski aja gak bisa. Walhasil setelah jatuh bangun berkali-kali, saya putuskan untuk turun jalan kaki sambil menjinjing peralatan ski turun. Keesokan harinya, badan saya pegal-pegal dan lebam-lebam.
