Hotel in Annecy - French Alps
In 1728, a young Henri Rousseau found himself in Annecy, France, "where he found abundant material — romantic, sexual, scandalous — for his celebrated 'Confessions.'" Rousseau became the ward of Madame de Warens, an aristocrat 12 years his senior: “I had imagined a sour-faced pious old lady,” he wrote in his autobiography. But “I saw a gracefully molded face, beautiful blue eyes filled with sweetness, a shining skin, the shape of an enchanting figure.” He called her “maman.” She found him small jobs in Annecy, encouraged his musical education — and then became his lover when he was just out of his teens. Thus, we discover there is history, beautiful canals, promiscuity, scandal, gorgeous mountains, and wonderful gastronomy all within the high Alps region of France. Your gift will contribute to spending two nights at the Hotel des Alpes in this fascinating lakeside town.

What's a honeymoon registry?
Wanderable is a new and unique honeymoon registry that allows wedding guests to gift
meaningful and memorable experiences to a newlywed couple.
Similar to a traditional registry where the couple registers for gifts,
couples will create a Wanderable registry website where guests can choose a thoughtful
experience to give based on their unique relationship with the couple.
Couples who choose Wanderable want a beautiful experience to help begin their journey together.
A marriage is about the experience of life and the journey you are just beginning together.
Wanderable believes that this is at the core of marriage. And the only way to help a
couple celebrate this is to provide a meaningful wedding gift of one of the first experiences
of this journey together.
Wanderable helps couples get started on their journey by providing a unique way for
guests to give more than a thing, but a gift of a new life experience the couple can share.
We believe that experiences can be made into memorable gifts, that feel as real as receiving
any other gift you can unwrap.
