Annecy can be best described as the setting of fairytale storybooks I wrote as a kid. Just dream of a bustling picturesque city, swans on the lake included, and you’ll get something along the lines of Annecy.
Our bus left Grenoble at around 9:45 AM and we arrived close to 11 AM. I could have spent the entire day walking around the old part of town admiring the little boutiques. We people watched while listening to dozens of languages. Very much a tourist destination.
We ate crepes and continued to the lake. We learned it's possible to walk all the way around the lake, which I would have loved to do if we were staying there longer. While the three other girls went on a little boat ride, Anna and I visited a church up on the hill and then went to an old castle which had a museum exhibit about Chinese visual art. Why not!
We had a fun time finding eating dinner and eventually wound our way back to the bus station to catch a ride home on a spanish coach bus. It was fun to hear spanish when I wasn't expecting it and communicate with the bus driver that way.
