Unsurprisingly, summer is without a doubt the most popular time of the year to travel for almost everyone. From the (generally) good weather to long breaks, there are many reasons why most people plan their trips during the summertime! Choosing a destination for summer trips though can be quite difficult, as you must consider weather, activities, and busyness of any potential place you’d like to visit. So, to help you all out with choosing your perfect summer destination, in this post I’ll be listing seven spots throughout the world that I think would make for the perfect summer getaway.
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.
