Mostly France

My lovely friend nicki has just sold her apartment in St Gervais, in the shadow of mont blanc. She asked if i would like a weekend away with her as she finalised the sale. No doubting my reply. We had superb weather and a lovely bit of french retail therapy and delicious food.

We travelled on the mont blanc mountain tram, very quaint, though nicki says very steep and hair raising further up the line ( we only did a 10 min trip).

Fondue and lots of mountain produce was consumed and made me re-live happy days spent in meribel on the ski season the Stokie Bloke and I did way back.Iles flottant, one of my favourite desserts EVER!

Our daily dose of ice cream;deciding the flavour was always tricky as they all looked so lovely.
