Switzerland, my friends, is a beautiful thang!
With the Alps and lakes surrounding many of its cities, it's evident that Switzerland is highly overlooked by Americans, and dammit, we need to start putting it on our MUST VISIT lists...
The night before our early flight, Laura (my expat friend in London) and I had to scrape for groceries...so thus, our White Trash Meal was made. In case you were wondering, there is Crystal Light in the glasses. Yeah buddy!
We stayed with a couchsurfer in Geneva, which produced a hilarious story in where we slept in the attic with a wood-burning stove that hardly produced any heat, so Laura went to bed looking like this:
But I digress...the actual town of Geneva was quite splendid:
Things you should know about Geneva:
- It's the French side of Switzerland, so pull out your Merci! and S’il vous plaît!
- All of Switzerland is on the pricey side, but Geneva is especially so.
- The city is very walkable, and includes a lot of cute churches, cafes and hotels.
- Although great for a day, I don't think there is terribly much to do in Geneva to stay past that...plan your trips accordingly!
