we are couple, and we are thinking about visiting Chamonix on June  3-7.
I was hiking before , but its the first time for my husband, and i'm looking for some "friendly"  one day hiking routes? (not in the snow, but in the valley)
is there any recommendations for us for this time of the year ?
what huts are opened during next week?
is there any other activity we can do in Chamonix during this days?
 
thank you all :)

Sorry, but you are on the forum about Montblanc pens, watches and other luxury goods, http://en.wikipedia....tblanc_(company). I think you will have to look elsewhere.

LOL... I laughed for a solid minute. This has made my morning. I don't think I have ever had anyone actually think that I was, or they themselves were, referring to the "REAL' Montblanc.

 

I'll admit, unfamiliar with the mountain, but we do have members from all over the world, so your question may see some responses.

Don't tell me they're all FAKES????

 

ps.....I have to admit that I was left puzzled for more than  a minute! All sorts of things went through my head ...is there a pen event at Chamonix? Do MB have a museum there? Then I scrolled down to Opooh's response!  Did I feel silly!

Great! Thank you.

 

 

 

Mont Blanc = mountain

Montblanc = brand for writing instruments, watches etc.

 

However, many of us also mix both ... for example, if you search here, some users still use "Mont Blanc"  ... and refer to fountain pens ... which is also wrong.

If you do a search for Montblanc on ebay it comes up with a number of items. If you add the phrase "Mont Blanc" to the search in the advanced box, the number is the same. So ebay have selected both spelling options as one search if you see what I mean

Imagine this,  The couple shows up at the factory floor and taps on one of the gruff voiced German machinist asking him where the trail was.

Or queueing by the feed section waiting for breakfast?

 

Or spending too long in a Mont Blanc bierkeller and going home piston broke (sorry for that!)

Imagine a newbie FPN member comes to Chamonix and ask where he has to be for a guided factory tour.
