Being an Australian, it’s still such a novelty that you can be in 3 countries in a week. Wake up in Germany on Monday, spend the week in France & pop on over to Italy on the weekend. #jetsetter
The lifts aren’t open yet in Chamonix, nor has there been enough snow, so we headed over to Courmayeur in Italy for the day.
An early start by my standards. 8am and it’s still just becoming light. The city is so pretty at this time of day.
After a morning of “finding my feet” back on the board (aka sliding down the mountain on my back-side), we needed a break.
We stopped for lunch at La Chaumiere at 1,746m. Being in Italy & all, we couldn’t go past a pizza. Although all the food that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. Don’t expect to get in & out quickly though as their service is v slow.
This is a bottle picked up in our meanderings around the Burgundy Wine Region, which we had promise we’d save until our first day on the slopes. How very well behaved of us to actually follow through 🙂

The photos are incredible. Although, I can definitely say I was glad I wasn’t on the trip.
