1962 Trip

South of France - Summer 1962

AnnecyOn the way we stayed in Paris and also Annecy. The college where we stayed in Paris was on the Bvd St Michelle. We were in dorms in Annecy and, for some reason or another, were under curfew at one point. From Annecy we went to Chamonix and I remember snow on the mountain-tops as we ascended by cable car.

NiceOur final destination was Nice where we stayed in what I think was originally a Russian Palace. There were trips to Menton, Cannes, Monte Carlo (but not in the casino) and also a boat trip to an island.

On the return journey we again stayed in Annecy and Paris. In Paris we travelled on the Metro and visited Montmartre where we were offered ‘dirty postcards’ by a street seller. Didn’t buy but probably looked! (David Fuller)
