The journey to Meribel was an 8-hour drive. We took it easy, driving in two-hour stints and taking a lunch or coffee break between each one. The elapsed journey time was 10 hours. Easy. We'll do it again I'm sure; it's comfortable enough for a short, last-minute, long weekend break.
On our first evening there, the local cows were not far from the village, and their bells were making a huge din. I found it surprising; most of the cows were lying down but enough were moving to make a lot of noise. The video isn't that interesting, but it's the bells I wanted to capture.
