An escape to the top of the world

Last month my boyfriend and I went on a little vacation in  the French Alps to visit his mother who leaves near Chamonix and the took this little trip as an opportunity to go up to l'Aiguille du Midi, a mountain peak culminating at 3842 meters, accessed by cable car, and offering a breathtaking view of the Mont-Blanc, but also the Aosta valley in Italy and the Swiss Alps.
Seeing the world from a different point of view was such a refreshing and resourcing experience and we got extremely lucky with the weather since there was not a single cloud in sight (even though the temperature up three was minus 12 degrees celcius). 

The only (other) animals that you can find up there are there fearless black birds called chough that seem to be totally oblivious of the void around them and of the altitude.

This day trip also gave me an excuse to sport a hand-made beanie (one of my obsession from the past Winter) one last time before its Spring and Summer exile in the back of my closet. This one is the Lucie beanie by Wool and the Gang in the color Pink Lemonade.
