Annecy was to be our last stop before Suze went off to Paris and I to Switzerland and Prague. We didn’t spend a whole lot of time there, but were able to walk around the quaint downtown near the lake and enjoy some delicious pizza near the canal. It reminded me a lot of what I’d picture Venice in Italy to look like, though I’ve never been there. We spent our evening reminiscing about our trip and all the things we had experienced together. We only really had time to enjoy the lake and its scenery, as we left the next day.
Before we left town, we ate breakfast at a little coffee shop near the train station. We sat outside in the sun and ate our pastries and coffee, and of course the one time that we decided to talk (rather loudly) about boys and relationships, assuming that everyone around us only spoke French, we wind up sitting next to an American. Surprised to see “backpackers” in this part of France, he asked us about our travels and told us that he just so happened to be a professional hockey player there in Annecy. Our visit to Annecy was short and sweet, but it was beautiful all the same.
