Travel Day: Geneva – Marseille

Today we travelled to Marseille, France! Before we left, though, we did an hour or so of site seeing in Geneva.

We found a cool park where the University is. At the entrance of that park is the Music conservatory, and this was also a short walk to a beautiful cathedral that you might ahve noticed in the background of yesterday’s photos.

Anyway, check out the pictures. Nothing really to report from Marseille yet, just getting settled in.

Here’s a teaser for what’s to come out of Marseille:

Travel Day: Arosa – Zurich – Geneva

Today we sadly said goodbye to our beautiful mountain view and took the train to Geneva.

Not too much to report, but when we had a train change in Zurich, we decided to take a later train and walk around a bit (on advice from several folks). To be honest? Meh on Zurich from what we saw.

When we got to Geneva, we found out that there was a festival going on by the lake. So we headed over to that and noticed that fairs in Geneva are WAY fancier than fairs in the US. I’m talking people in suits, and bar tents with purple chandeliers playing house music. It was a very different vibe.

Anyway, here are some photos of our VERY brief visit to Zurich (we didn’t see much):
