When I first arrive in Annecy I was welcomed by my friends Sydney and Elodie, I was so happy to see them again after 1 year since they were Couch Surfing in Australia with me. They came to pick me up from the train station , took us shopping and feed us with so much amazing French food. We stayed at Sydney parents house for the first three days with our own room and bathroom. In that three days Sydney and Elodie took us to the ski resort at Semnoz where I saw snow for the first time in over 17 years, as well as taking us to visit their friends.
After we went to stay with Sophie and her family for three weeks in Saint Jorioz which is about 10 km from the city center where We did Helpx.org.
During my stay there Sydney and Helodie came to pick us up and took us to this amazing chalet with no electricity high on the mountain which only a 4X4 could get to. This place was breath taking, it is absolutely amazing. They both knew that I wanted to go to Mount Blanc so they did the next best thing because Mount Blanc was in the background. They were also proud to show us where James Bond the move was made as well. We love there amazing dogs Cahuete and Baboo always with us running around so happy to be in the snow.
Looking back now I will always remember that day where we cooked food on top of the fire heater and a candle lit dinner playing word games and drinking among friends. These are great memories that will stay with us for a life time.
Thank you guys you have made our stay in Annecy that much more special.
