I know there are mountains all around me even though I can’t really see them. I can feel them looming though. I know there are beautiful rocky outcrops, huge open spaces and my favourite lake (so far) in the world. Climbing, flying, walking, chilling and much more in store for the next two weeks. I’m so excited I can barely sit still.
We have arrived in Annecy. It’s dark and we have been on the road for 13 hours. That doesn’t sound like much fun. You think that the drive is the most boring part of the trip. But it’s actually wonderful when you get to spend that much time with your good friends. There’s nothing like spending 13 hours locked in a box together to remind yourselves that you love each other. We have talked bollocks, giggled, shared (driving, food, etc) and gossiped all the way down.
I’ve already met someone with so much flying, climbing and life experience that I am listening in awe. Even though it’s dark, we can see the shadows of the mountains. There’s much more to say, but I’m exhausted and tomorrow’s looking good, so I must go to bed and prepare myself for the fun!
