Zoned out and panicked

After a harrowing 24 hours plus travelling (you know how it is) we touched down into a 7 degree geneva. Actually Etihad was really pretty good as airlines go-apart from seating Gai and I in separate sections of the Abu Dhabi leg (a bad thing?). However, because of a light loading we could move pretty much anywhere after lift off. I have to say i much preferred that ride on a now long-in-the-tooth A330 and found it quieter and smoother than the Dreamliner.
In a flash of brilliance which come me rarely, I convinced my son Luke to make the short hop over from Chamonix to take charge of the lease car trip back to his place. There were some frantic moments finding fuel, deciding if Benzole really means Diesel and programming the inbuilt GPS to skirt the
Swiss 40 Euro Vignette required to drive 500 metres on a motorway in their territory.
And then...Chamonix!. You can't take a photo of this, it's just everywhere...towering peaks like the mesmerising Mont Blanc...and fabulous The Brevent (going up tomorrow.) So we stand on Luke's verandah and just look straight up, vertical on both sides of the valley and go,,,,oooohhhhhhh!!!
