Two Days In Geneva, Switzerland

Quite a few years ago now, my family and I visited the Swiss town of Geneva. Geneva is located near the Switzerland/France border, in Southeastern Switzerland, and it is surrounded by Lake Geneva (Lac Léman in French) and the Alps and Jura mountains. Geneva is the second most expensive city in all of Europe, and the second most populous city in Switzerland, both after Zürich. We stayed in the city, famous for its chocolate, luxury watches, and Swiss Army knives, for two days. In this post I’ll be running you through everything we did in the two days we stayed in Geneva for, from visiting the world famous Water Jet (Jet d’eau) to learning about the history of Swiss watches and clocks.

French Cities To Visit That Aren’t Paris

For obvious reasons, Paris is a must-visit city for any tourist visiting France. But what visitors are missing is a chance to really experience France as a whole. Paris is a great place to start your trip to France, but there are many more cities (including many not listed in this post) that deserve as much of your time as Paris. I originally planned to write this post about the best day trips from Paris, but all of these cities are worthy of much more than a day of your time. So, I present to you four cities in France, other than Paris, that you must visit!

Italy’s Hidden Gem: A Guide To Verona

Verona is a medieval city in Northern Italy, well-known for being the setting of Shakespeare’s most famous play, Romeo and Juliet. It is also home to the third largest amphitheater in Italy,  suitably named the Verona Arena. My family visited Verona almost two years ago, and we stayed for only a day. Despite the fact that Verona does get quite a decent amount of tourists each year (apparently over a million), I would still consider it a “hidden gem”/overlooked because it deserves much more attention than what it gets! In my post today I will be guiding you through Verona, informing you on everything about the city, from must-see attractions to where to stay during your visit.

Amsterdam V.S. Venice – Which City Should You Visit?

Hello everyone! Happy Easter as well, if you are reading this the day it was published. Today I’ll be writing about two similar yet very different cities – Amsterdam and Venice. They are both known for their charming canals and dozens of famous attractions. Both cities are extremely popular tourist destinations, and it can be hard to choose which of one of them you should visit (if you must only choose only one!) In this post I will be comparing both cities, and hopefully helping you decide which city to visit – Amsterdam or Venice. I’ve never seen any posts comparing both of the cities, and so I thought it’d be fun to do one myself. Laten we beginnen as you would as in Amsterdam, or Iniziamo as you would say in Venice!
