Lausanne and around

It’s taken me wayyyy too long to visit Lausanne. Almost as long as it’s taken me to finally get around to writing this blog post.

One of my best friends – and superstar extraordinaire – is from Lausanne. Well, he’s actually from Berlin and we were flatmates in Sydney – but his life deserves another blog post of its own.

A’ite back to my story: So as I was saying, my friend Gerrit is from Lausanne and over the years I have virtually/electronically/telepathically gotten to know many of his family and friends.

Stunning Chamonix

Chamonix-Mont-Blanc (or just Chamonix, or “Cham” according to the cool kids) is a stunning town nestled in the French Alps, very close to the Swiss border. It’s the launch pad for some of the most exciting skiing in the region, and a fun town to spend a serene, cosy weekend – which is exactly what I did two weekends ago.

It’s also one of the most picturesque places I have ever been to, so I cursed myself for nothing taking my camera with me. Trusted iPhone saved the day and here are some of my favourite shots from the beautiful Chamonix. Enjoy!
