Geneva – Eurotrip

18 Apr

Heaven, Switzerland

I went to Switzerland for the second time during my Eurotrip. Although, exactly a year back, when I visited Swiss for the first time, it was like being in heaven. The summer of 2010 was the most blissful and relaxing period of my life.

My first solo trip to Switzerland and my first pit stop being – Geneva. I tried covering Geneva in a day, but couldn’t visit the Red Cross and the UN Palace of Nations. Yet, my camera caught the beautiful blooming moments of Geneva Spring.

Merry-go-round, Place de la Madeleine, Geneva, Switzerland

This 15th century church, Place de la Madeleine, restored in the 17th century, is a beautiful landmark in Geneva’s Old Town with wodden horses, merry-go-round and flee shops selling antique jewellery.

    Excellent way of describing, and good paragraph to obtain data
    regarding my presentation subject, which i am going to present in school.

    Hi,

    I am writing a blog post about Geneva and I found these awsome pictures on your site. Can I use some of them, citing your site as the author? My blog is http://da-scoprire.678voli.it/ (in Italian language) and I am writing about various cities, mostly in Europe.

    Thanks and Happy Holidays,
    Debora
