Weather conditions in Mont Blanc, France, has been favorable this week. So we spontaneously decided to visit it. On a last year’s visit we were unlucky as the region was covered in clouds and it was raining so we couldn’t see a thing nor go for a walk.

On the way to Mont Blanc we experienced what it feels like to have a car tire burst while going at highway speeds. Nothing exciting or dangerous. Our rental car did not have a spare wheel and the tire was torn to shreds so we had to call evacuation. All in all, only 1.5 hours lost on the incident.
