Passerelle du Drac & Lac de Monteynard

20170610_181628

I like France, for her diversity of any kind. Especially in nature. For example- living in Alpes does not mean the only ski but also walk & bath in plenty of the beautiful lakes!

Today I invite you for a small walk on the rope bridge Passerelle du Drac!

1 paserrelle - Copy
Length: 220 m, width: 1.20 m, height: 45 to 85 m according to the height of the water.

Apparently, this type of Himalayan bridge is very rare in Europe. The view of the lake & surrounding mountains is really breathtaking. You can make a hike and go back by boat, however, boats are available only during summer.

Provence & Nice

Everybody in France wants to live on French Riviera. Seriously. They even made a movie  Bienvenue chez les Ch’tis  were people tried literally everything to just get job in south part of country… ( btw. movie is great comedy, it is a must to watch it!)

Anyways, autumn is here and days are shorter & darker  and I think we need some remaining of  warm & sunny days.

This time instead of mountains I prepared  few pictures from- Côte d’Azur from our first stop:  region de Provence & Nice.  (I promised to upload more pictures from another  places of French Riviera shortly).

We have visited Provence in June. After 3 hours of driving, lavender fields showed up…
