A holiday in the Alps
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Thermal socks keep your feet warm when you are constantly treading snow
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: One of the best things that i bought on the trip was a thermal flask and we used it everyday filling it with tea or soup. It kept us warm and stomachs full.

You could also buy everything in Chamonix, but...

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be prepared for any weather conditions. The picture above was taken in July and the weather can change really quick when you're up on 4000 meters. One minute it's beautiful and sunny and the next thing you notice is a snow storm. So, you better take some warm clothing.
