A weekend in the mountains

title 2

For the French part of our weekend adventure we caught an Easy Bus from Geneva airport to Morzine in the French alps for a couple of days of fresh mountain air.

The drive was about an hour and a half with lots of twisty roads up into the mountains which made for some good window watching.

Morzine is a small village that revolves around skiing in the winter and mountain biking in the summer. It’s a cute place but does feel like it was a home base for many native english speakers. I don’t have a problem with that, especially as we were a party of 3 english people, but I like my adventures to include at least some of the local lingo.

24 Hours In Geneva

Geneva

One of my sister-in-laws moved in Geneva 5 years ago but it has taken us until this year to make the journey to see her. Which is terrible if you ask me, especially considering it the flight was really quick! We spent a whirlwind 24 hours in Geneva and I can safely say it won’t be the last time!

Unlike 99% of our trips this was not one organised by myself which did leave me a little uneasy but I needn’t have worried as we had an amazing time.

Victoria has a lovely central apartment with high ceilings, white walls and sash windows – if I ever live in a city that’s the type of apartment I want! We stayed with her which meant we didn’t have to fork out for a hotel which I’d read could be pricey in Geneva (much like the rest of Switzerland.)

Our flight arrived late on Thursday evening so after a lie in and a leisurely breakfast Stuart, Victoria and I met up with her friend Ana to begin our tour.

First stop of the day – CERN.
