We took an overnight flight from Iceland to Paris which meant getting in at 6am. We were completely exhausted but managed to settle in to our apartment, take a quick nap and explore the city. Our first mission was to find coffee – not too difficult with a million cafes lining the streets. After a good hour of people watching, we strolled through Le Marais eating pastries and taking in the scenery. The Parisian way of life was certainly a harsh contrast to Iceland where the landscape is so expansive and there are more sheep than people. We met a good friend who was much more familiar with the area and immediately started to feel more comfortable. By the third day we started to really enjoy the city, just in time get our car and head for the coast.

Hi! I’m surprising my husband with a trip to Chamonix for his 30th birthday 🙂 i wonder though what’s the best way to get there? Which train company should i look for? Should we go via Geneve or Paris? 🙂
Hey! Sounds amazing! We really don’t know much about getting there by train, as we had a rental car, but we can say that it’s a short and very beautiful drive from Geneva to Chamonix. Have an amazing trip, we’re jealous!
Chamonix is an hour or so drive from Geneva. Train it’s a good days drive. For French train travel try SNCF.
Just stumbled upon your blog again, we really enjoyed Chamonix and will never regret going there. Thanks for the information, we hired a car and went to Chamonix. Would highly recommend others.
