I already shared some photos about the old town of Geneva and now I’m showing you some photos of the lake. The weather was pretty good although it rained a bit. There are a few parks and a botanical garden where you can go for a walk or stop for a coffee.
At the beginning of May I spent a week with a friend in Geneva. Switzerland is one of my favorite countries but I prefer the ”German” part. However I’ve never been to Geneva before so it seemed like a great short break between studying and working.
I was surprised by the old city center. It has a strong french vibe and in some parts it really feels like you’re in France – french-looking cafes with tables on the streets under big old trees and carousels surrounded by people. Especially the part around the Gothic cathedral is lovely. Narrow yet empty streets and beautiful historic building.
Traveling with friends is great. I always feel more like going on an adventure, because you get to spend few days living with people you don’t usually live with. We made a reservation via airbnb and actually stayed in France just a few meters from the border. It was a unique experience that I always seek for when traveling with airbnb.
