Mon Dieu! What a beautiful city Geneva is. The lake, the swans, the views of the French alps, the dramatic flags draping above footpaths, not to mention the deliciously pure air  (I could go on) that all create a charmingly graceful city. And then of course the sun starts setting and I remember that Switzerland is most defs one of my favourite European countries. Everything looks even better through amber-tinted sunglasses right?! Remember when I visited Fribourg just half an hour north on the train? Take a look, you know you’re curious!

I’ll show you a sneak peek of the city with the Parc des Bastions, home to Europe’s longest bench don’t you know. Take that pub quiz. It’s a place to admire the old town far below you, take a drink in a cafe or kick about in the leaves next to the university.

I guess I must have been inspired by the nature of the trip (to discover the city with the help of a new Girls Guide to Geneva which you can pick up for free from the tourist board) so got dolled up in my most ladylike suitcase-friendly pieces. As I write this, I’m sat in this dramatic pink duster coat and fluffy snood and in Geneva I paired them with my latest love – a little flippy skirt. There’s lots more to come on Geneva so keep your notepad handy – you’ll be wanting to visit very soon!
