The towns are crowded with summer holidaymakers who choose the Alps over the beach, something very new to us folks living in Australia. It’s eye opening to see how the locals choose to spend their summer holidays; lakeside over sandy beaches, mountain trekking over suntanning.

These pictures were taken in the towns of Yvoire, Talloires, La Clusaz and an amazing drive through the Alps known as the Col des Aravis where you can see cows wearing cowbells and a very picturesque little chapel set admist a stunning backdrop of mist (it happened to be a rainy day).
