I love going out in good day especially if there's a company to walk with. Pictures of me taken by Wira.
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.
Geneva still frozen on the second week after snowy day. The temperature still reach 10 below 0. Because we still curious about more frozen around Lac Leman, we decided to go to Versoix. In Versoix you can see cars that froze near the lake. This cars had made news all over the world. So we had to see it ourself.
We took bus number 5 until Nations and continue with bus V until Versoix. When we reach Versoix, there's a lot of people. It became a touristic site in this few weeks. I took plenty of pictures and about an hour later we decided to went to go Carouge to take pictures in less icy place. Yeah...our feet started to numb after standing on ice for an hour.

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.
