When the weather is this nice, it's hard to stop thinking about summer vacations... ones I have planned, as well as ones I'd love to go on in the future... Like going to Mont Blanc!
There's still a little over month or so left to enter our contest to win a trip to Mont Blanc, courtesy of Raincoast, Lonely Planet and UTracks. The trip starts in the Chamonix Valley in France and the route takes you through Italy and Switzerland, on a horseshoe circuit around the Mont Blanc massif. Sounds pretty amazing.

Je voudrais une croissant.
Je suis enchante.
Ou est le bibliotheque?
Voila mon passport.
Ah, Gerard Depardieu!
Those are just some of the phrases you'll need to know if you visit France. But wait, should I really be getting my travel advice from Flight of the Concords?
Lonely Planet has a fair bit to say about travelling in France, too...
In this video, Lonely Planet founder Tony Wheeler is talking about the new Discover series. Lonely Planet Discover guidebooks feature full-colour images throughout, improved maps, and lots of recommendations and suggested itineraries. For examaple, click here to see a digital preview of France's Top 25 Experiences from Discover France.
While you're waiting to see if you'll be trekking around Mont Blanc... Enter this week's Lonely Planet MINI CONTEST!
To win a Lonely Planet Discover Prize Pack, including a Discover T-shirt and a copy of Lonely Planet Magazine, simply leave a comment below telling me which of France's Top 25 Experiences you'd most like to have. I'll randomly select a winner on June 8th. (Entrants must have a mailing address in Canada.)
