PAPERWEIGHT TECHNIQUES IN A STUNNING SCENT BOTTLE COLLECTION IN MARSEILLE, AND FRENCH COLLEGE STUDENTS PLAYING AMERICAN FOOTBALL. While visiting France recently for my friends Gautier and Aurore’s wedding, I had the opportunity to spend a couple of days in Provence, a day in Chamonix in the French Alps to see Mont Blanc and the mountains across from it (the Aiguille du Midi), and extended time in both Grenoble and Marseille. I’d been to Grenoble in the Alps once before, and I enjoy it immensely. (This post has 42 photographs.) It was my first time in Marseille, and I found it to be a wonderful place to visit, with a fascinating old city area called the Panier, a newly restored port area with its archeological museum, warm dry weather not unlike southern California, and excellent food. What is it about a simple dish of steak and French fries (steak frites) eaten in France that makes them extra delicious? I was in Marseille for six days total and stayed with friends in a villa in a hillside neighborhood ...

Germany dedicate 4-0 win to Schumacher 17 June, 2014 Lukas Podolski dedicated Germany’s 4-0 World Cup thrashing of Portugal to countryman Michael Schumacher, after the news emerged that the Formula 1 legend has emerged from a five and a half month medically induced coma. Substitute striker Podolski declared after the match, “He’s a good friend, a good guy and he’s also crazy about football. Maybe he watched the game or he knew about the result.” Schumacher had been in a coma after a skiing accident in the French Alps on 29 December, the 45 year old being treated in ICU at Grenoble Hospital. The seven-time world champion is now at a Swiss hospital in Lausanne, closer to his family’s home and out of the coma. The BBC reports that F1 driver Lewis Hamilton, world champion in 2008 and the German’s replacement in the Mercedes team, said it was “amazing” to hear of Schumacher’s progress. “Everywhere I go people ask about him,” said the Englishman, who drives for Mercedes, the last team Sc ...
Schumacher out of coma: Former Formula One champion Michael Schumacher is no longer in a coma and has been moved from hospital in Grenoble after a skiing accident last December. The 45-year-old has been in an induced coma since suffering a serious head injury in the accident in the French Alps resort of Meribel. He has now left Grenoble in France and been moved to University Hospital of Lausanne in Switzerland. Read full story here:
Schumacher out of coma, shifted to Swiss hospital GENEVA/LAUSANNE, Switzerland (Reuters) - Seven times Formula One racing champion Michael Schumacher, who suffered severe head injuries in a ski accident last year, has come out of a coma and was transferred to a Swiss medical centre on Monday, officials said, but gave no details of his condition. Schumacher, the most successful Formula One racer of all time, has had several brain operations since his accident in the French Alps in late December. He was moved for further treatment early on Monday to Lausanne's CHUV hospital, a sprawling modern glass-fronted complex above Lake Geneva. The centre treated former Zairean dictator Mobutu Sese Seko for cancer in the mid-1990s and last year its forensic scientists analysed the remains of the late Palestinian leader Yasser Arafat for traces of poison. Schumacher, hugely popular in his native Germany and across the world in a sport that had become immensely lucrative in the course of his career, has been regularly v ...

This weekend I traveled to Annecy, France with a few friends for a quick a day trip. We were recommended to visit this city by multiple locals, and for good reason! The city was incredible in terms of natural beauty and resembled Switzerland with its view of the French Alps (second photo). We took in this scene as we indulged on some doner kabobs on the bank of Lake Annecy upon our arrival. Following this serene experience, we took a stroll up a stone path to the city's little-known cathedral, called the Basilique de la Visitation. Afterwards we found one of the more famous sites of Annecy, the Palais de l'Isle (which can be seen in the first picture), a castle in the centre of the Thiou canal now used as a historical museum. Enjoying ice cream at one of the city's premiere ice cream shops was a perfect end to the day, as we hopped on a train and returned to the best city of all; Lyon.
last few places at this wonderful course in the French Alps - treat yourself
Post 3: This past weekend we took a trip up to Annecy, France. Having been recommended the city by some of the locals, we had very high expectations for Annecy and the city definitely lived up to them. It was a change from the usual weekend trips to big cities, as Annecy is a mid-sized town nestled in the French Alps with a more outdoors feel than an urban one. They are well known for their beautiful lake and surrounding park, where many (including our group) could have been seen relaxing, picnicing, and taking in the scenery. Apart from the lake, there are also many canals to walk along and hills to hike, which made this trip very enjoyable. We got to see major spots like Palais d'isle and the Basilique de Visitation. The best part of the trip was walking into the small French shops that lined the streets of Annecy and getting to experience the warmth and friendliness of the locals. We ended the day with some fantastic gelato and one of the famous Annecy gelato shops. Overall a solid weekend with some ch ...

My Aunt Sara died on this day, Flag Day, 30 years ago in 1984. Her husband had been killed in WWII. He was a gunner and his plane went down over the French Alps. The only remains she got was an American flag draped over an empty coffin. She left the flag to me, and it is now framed and hanging in my son's home...48 stars, fragile, but in good hands for posterity..Because of this, Flag Day, which has always been a special day, has a special but bittersweet meaning for me.

Jen and Massimo are currently guiding our Colombiere, Madaleine, Alpe D'Huez trip and we would like to welcome to the ranks of Nicolas James, Alistair Smith, Andrew Brown,Nicola Brown, Trudy Bergen, Shelia Ward, John Ward, Jane Laughton, Karen Mair, Mark Ellis, Charlie Patrick and Diana Bloss. Everyone is having a great week and this trip is one of our lesser known but really enjoyable trips. We consider this trip to be one aimed at two types of mountain riders; the rider who is new to the French Alps and wants to give them a try, and then riders who have taken on all the other challenges of the French Alps and would like to try some of the lesser known but still challenging routes.
