This was my second visit to Annecy. The first time was during summer and this one on the first day of 2015. I didn’t visit so many towns in my life but I can say for sure that Annecy is one of the most beautiful towns in the world.
There are two main sites in Annecy : the part next to the lake, le Pâquier
and the old town which is very often called Venice of the Alps. It is not hard to guess why.
The town is most of the time full of tourists and if you are, like us, not fond of the crowd this can be disturbing. Coming on the first of January was a very good choice. We were not alone, but it was not crowded either.
The day was cold and sunny. But there was something in that cold air. Was it holiday spirit, the sun that got through clouds, the blue water of the lake or just us? People were smiling, enjoying the sunshine, laughing, walking, Linda was eating snow, a dog even sang Happy New Year to us…
We got hello from strangers, we met dog lovers and many dogs. One cute basset reached up to our hearts.
What a beautiful day in Annecy that was.
… and as the cherry on the cake : Linda and I played in snow !
