Well, I sure do feel bad for pulling my Bernese Mountain Dog away from THIS place! What a beauty Switzerland shaped up to be. For those of you who don’t know, Daniel and I headed to Geneva, Switzerland for 1) My 30th Birthday (boooo!) and 2) New Year’s Eve. We had a great time and love Suisse country. Miller, you would have loved it too!
Here is what we kept busy with on our trip. Even if you don’t care, I need to get this down for my future reference. Someday–and too many diet cokes later, I will look back on this blog to remember this whole “Julie and Daniel’s Great Adventure”. So…like I was saying:
(1)We shopped along Lake Geneva (Old Town); (2)Stayed at the cutest boutique hotel (EastWest); (3)Ate Swiss chocolate; (4)Bought Swiss army knives; (Not 5)Couldn’t afford a Swiss massage; (5)Ate some of the BEST Italian food along the Lake; (6)Drank hot cocoa at the Godiva store; (7)Drank lots of expensive wine ($16/glass); (8)Visited the Jet D’eau; (9)Took photos in front of the Flower Clock; (10)Went to a modern art museum (never need to do that again); (11)And finally, rang in 2011 with amazing fireworks on Lake Geneva!
I wish the pictures did this place justice. It makes me want to sell everything, get some great Northface gear, and become a true mountain woman. I would eat chocolate, get Swiss massages, and drink Swiss wine all day. I would ski (OK, TRY to ski), take Miller to play in the snow, and whatever else those crazy Swissies do! Ahhhh….the life! I just wish it was about 30 degrees warmer????
More Suisse posts to come. Bon Appetit!
