In Sight of Mont Blanc
The town and whole valley where I was staying in France was pretty busy with tourists as it was the school holidays and of course so lovely there, but we managed to make our escape up to a mountain pass in sight of the awesome Mont Blanc for a bit of camping. You can wild-camp practically anywhere in the Alps apparently which is pretty cool, will definitely be heading there again for a few days, as we just did one night this time. We arrived in the evening and picked the ideal spot with a brilliant view overlooking a lake, then barbequed and had a great evening of stargazing and satellite spotting. Then we attempted to sleep with the noise of cow-bells ringing on the mountain slopes...
Taking a puppy was fun, here he is munching on the bonfire wood, monster!
