The day trip to Annecy, a beautiful city located 3 hours and 30 minutes away from Bourg Saint Maurice, was one of my favorite excursions during the entire exchange.
The feeling of freedom, the cool breeze, the beauty and culture of the city are a few things that I am never likely to forget.
The day excursion to Annecy started off with us heading to the mall and being introduced to all of our partners’ favorite shopping stores followed by lunch, a joyful picnic next to lake Annecy. For lunch, I had the famous baguette filled with yummy cheese and tomatoes. The sun reflecting off the lake, distant snowy mountains and colorful flowers around us were a mesmerizing sight that left me quite speechless. Soon after soaking in the sun, we decided to go for a boat ride on the lake, where we shared jokes, laughed as if there was no tomorrow while listening to music and clicked photos of each other. After boating, we spent most of the day shopping for souvenirs, eating ice cream by the bridge, exploring the city and so much more.
