It’s time to say goodbye.

Closing our summer house in La Rivière and flying back home to Singapore for the 4th year.

Until next time.

I couldn’t resist a little GIF of the drive in the pitch dark, very narrow and not one-way (!) tunnel.

The roads in the Vercors are not for the fainted heart but it is so beautiful.

And no this in not a one-way road 😉

“La Montagne, Ca Vous Gagne” *

This was the slogan in the 90s to entice more people to go to the mountains, not only during the wintertime but also in the summer.

With more and more people enjoying nature and being tired of overcrowded beach (plus the more and more frequent heatwave) the French Alps is sure a great idea.

* loosely translate to “The Mountain, It Wins You Over”

It took a little longer than expected to have this photo with almost nobody.

Son started to losing his cool when I kept telling him after this group leave we’ll take my picture and go but more and more people were coming through so I settled with those 2 present in my photo ;-).

Another great view of the Valley and the different mountains from 940m (3,040ft) altitude. For reference the valley (hence Grenoble) is at +/- 200m (700ft)

This is located closer to Grenoble near the Notre Dame de Chalais Monastery.

While the monastery date back to 1100, the present community of Dominican nuns bought the property in 1963 and restored it. Today the nuns of Chalais manufacture Monastic biscuits to cover their expenses.

He didn’t kill me the first time so I’m renewing the experiment… no WiFi for several hours and walk in the woods.

After a tough little hike up in the woods we reached Notre Dame de Vouise.

Ninety more steps to climb to enjoy the view of the valley and the surrounding mountains.
