World Tour: Geneva, Switzerland

[ 0 ] May 28, 2010 |

The first time I went to Europe as an adult, I visited Geneva, Switzerland. What a great way to start my travels in the EU?! Switzerland is beautiful and typically you would think of the Swiss Alpes as the main attraction but when you visit Geneva, it’s almost like you forget they are there. Lake Geneva took up most of my attention and I spent most of my time observing its accents night and day. It was one of the most calming and peaceful experiences of my life. Geneva is a major city in Switzerland but ironically loud noise past 10 pm is totally unacceptable. Good thing we had plenty of fondue to keep our mouths shut.

Once we discovered how cheap the fondue was and how delicious Swiss fondue tasted with our favorite beverage of choice, red wine, we spent most of our time dipping and double dipping. Geneva is the place of chocolate. As you know, chocolate, sweets and the rest of the family are not my favorite foods but if chocolate is your thing, this is place you need to add to your travel list. Watches with much attention to detail, cheeses to please any palate and chocolate galore…Geneva has carved out its own identity in the EU and these are some of the main reasons they attract guests from all over the world.It did not hurt that United Airlines bumped us up a notch to first class after a we had snagged a cheap flight to Switzerland. Thinking about this trip brings back amazing memories…maybe it’s time to plan another trip??…
