Through the Alps to Switzerland

Two years ago, we described the beauty of traveling to Switzerland from Manosque – but it was in Russian! 🙂

This time, we rather do this in English. Again, we traveled to Lausanne from Manosque passing through the beautiful French Alps – though this time we did it in September and not in November. Let us not spend many words describing what we saw – the photos will show you the scenery as it has been pictured. 😉

This beauty can be seen along the department road from Sisteron to Grenoble. There is no motorway: the heavy traffic started only when we approached Grenoble itself. From Grenoble to Lausanne, it took us about 2 hours to reach the hotel. Unfortunately, the traffic between Geneva and Lausanne was quite busy.

Lausanne was well-known to us: we lived there from 2005 to 2009. It is always nice to visit this city again, to walk along the Lac Leman (Geneva Lake) coast and to do some shopping. 😉 Especially if the whole family was traveling together! 🙂

This was a short but very intensive and exciting weekend tour! 🙂
