CHAMONIX MONT BLANC.

MONT BLANC

Mer de Glace

Well, well, well…
This is what I can tell you :

Mont Blanc is MAGNIFICENT.

Monsieur and I had an extraordinary experience to see the famous Mont Blanc in Chamonix for the first time. We’d never thought that it would be soooo great.

We had to go to L’AIGUILLE DU MIDI by cable car to reach out [almost] the top. When we’re finally able to get close to 3842 m altitude of mountain, it’s very stunning!. We [or actually it was me!] were like “Oh my God…oh my God…how beautiful it is…!. We felt like the nature’s big and we’re so small.

We also took a red train from Chemin de Fer du Montenvers to go to MER DE GLACE [frozen sea]. Besides a beautiful frozen sea view, there’s a sort of glacier cave exposition underneath this frozen sea. We took a look, and got a little bit disappointed. So if you don’t want to see it, you won’t miss anything. I don’t recommend to go down there [the cave] if you have baby or toddler because it might be difficult to them to climb the stairs [approximately 400 stairs!] unless if you want to carry them.

NOTES :

• You need an access card to enter the tourisme spot in Chamonix. There’re various kinds of access card [with various ranges of price too!.], better do a research first from chamonix tourisme website before you buy it. We bought Mont Blanc unlimited pass [63,50€/person] to get all access in Chamonix tourist spots for one day. You can buy it online maximum two days before the day, or you can find an automatic counter in front of cable car center.

• Aiguille du Midi is not allowed for less than 5 years old children.

• We prefer to go in winter time to see all the areas of Mont Blanc covered by snow. But if you want to go in summer time it will be nice too, although you won’t get snow as much as in winter [less attractive for us].

• Check the weather!. It’s important because if the weather is not a good one, you will not get a good visibility of Mont Blanc [especially in raining and cloudy day]. Sunshine is always the best thing!.

L’ETANG DU DOUL – PEYRIAC DE MER.

I always love when we’re accidentally lost and ended up with finding an interesting new place to be visited. 

This is Lake Doul in Peyriac de Mer – Aude. I love the wood bridges that will take you from the lake to the hills. They’re very photogenic teehee. But unfortunately we’re not able to go until the top of the hill because petit monsieur dislike the insects around it. So we turned back. But I saw a group of tourist who would do a trekking. I guess the distance to reach the top of the hill is quite long. Don’t worry the hill’s road is not a difficult one, even petit monsieur could walk easily – but keep prudent always.

This morning at my breakfast time, I checked my Instagram and I got a notification from R Hotel Rancamaya’s account. A good one, and you know whatttt??, I won a photo contest!. Ahaha.

Actually I did it just for fun, I never thought that I’d win it. Thank you R Hotel at Rancamaya – Bogor.

We were there in July. It’s our first time to spend our holiday there, and since then Monsieur always asked me to come back to this hotel. Yes it’s been his favorite hotel in Indonesia so far.

We chose this hotel because it’s so close to the nature, a spacious room with beautiful view, and [my favorite] super classy bathroom.

For us, the most important thing when we’re choosing the hotel is the facility that they have for the kids. Because it’s important to petit monsieur to play and have fun too!.

Fortunately, besides the swimming pool for the kids, this hotel has a kids club which is very-very interesting place. When we were there petit monsieur didn’t want to go back to our room and wanted to stay there all day long!. The kids club at R hotel has a lot of toys to play with, cinema room, and kids’ activities. The tutors are very kind and friendly to the kids. You can also leave your kids and let the tutors take care of them. Believe me it’s very helpful when you want to have your [short] time alone without the kids during your holiday. And so far I haven’t found the other hotels with who have kind of facility. We did it. We left petit monsieur at the kids club with the tutors and the other kids, and did our fitness at the hotel’s gym.

Overall, this hotel is a great escape place for your family. They have a great service and delicious meals at the Pavilion restaurant [their three pannacotta dessert is a delish!]. Their room service is quite fast.

The only problem is when you don’t have a car it’s very difficult to get there. Because the taxi from Jakarta can’t enter this city – Bogor. I don’t know why, I still can’t understand until today. So, I suggest it’s better to rent a car or ask someone to drive you there.
