Your mountains….and cheese….and chocolate…and complete cleanliness….and multitude of civilians that follow all of the laws (like not crossing on red when there are no cars ANYWHERE)…..
So, for the slower readers out there- I went to Geneva, Switzerland last weekend and it was beautiful and cold and clean and expensive and perfectly relaxing.
So you might be asking, “why would you go to Geneva when there are other beautiful Swiss cities to explore and mountains to ski?”. Good question. Most people don´t head to Geneva when they go to Switzerland, but it´s a nice place to see. Luis is working there for 4 months so I went to visit….and Geneva, while small, is beautiful and quaint and I didn’t try the fondue (yet), but I imagine it’s as delicious in Geneva as in Switzerland’s more happenin’ cities.
I was so impressed by Swiss airline, from their friendly staff to the BOCADILLOS and CHOCOLATE they gave me on the 1.5 hour flight! Give me free food and don’t weigh my bag and I’ll think you’re a fantastic airline.
And on Saturday, we explored. There are things to see in Geneva, there just isn’t a lot to see. Actually, that´s not true. I think there is a lot to see, but it doesn´t have a ton of popular sites that other cities have.
I mean…type in “best things to see in Geneva” on Google and one of the top suggestions is “go out for cocktails”. Haha…but it’s still a beautiful city! It reminded me very much of Paris (WHO AM I??? I THINK I CAN SAY THINGS LIKE THIS NOW!!!) But really, it did remind me of Paris. Lots of small cafes and bakeries and people sitting outside. And $$$$$
Fueled and ready to go we continued our journey through Geneva. We stopped briefly at the famous lake with the shooting fountain (Jet d’Eau), but didn’t stay too long since it was cold and I was whining 😉
“LOOK! A bird!!!!!”
Ok, I didn’t really win. But I’m learning.
That night, we watched a movie and fell asleep earlier than most grandparents across all oceans do on a Saturday night. I told you, relaxing weekend! But to our defense, everything in Geneva closes at like…7:00 pm. The commercial center is close-closed by 7:30 with all employees home and warm with their families by 7:31 pm. It was dead by the time we walked through.
