The last, best & most exciting day. We sure crammed alot into this day. Visiting a city in 2 days puts you on extreme tourist mode. Seeing everything you possibly can, as fast as you can. I kind of love it.
Mont-Saleve Cable Car
After getting a little confused regarding the Swiss bus system, we found ourselves on the number 8 bus to Veyrier-Douane. The last bus stop to the south east of Geneva, and the closest stop to the cable car. A short 5 minute journey took us right the way up the mountain, revealing panoramic views of the entire city. Even though it was a cloudy day, it still took us aback. It was such a beautiful view, we paticularly enjoyed spotting the landmarks we had already visited, testing our knowledge after one day.
We went off for a wander, watched the paragliders take off & picked some daisys. Pretty perfect start to the day.
A little sun break to relax in the park, have naps & people watch was so necessary.
Lake Geneva Boat Tour
The lake is one of the main reasons I wanted to visit Geneva. After my 5 short minutes of researching the place, we know about my spontaneous decision to visit Switzerland in the first place in the last post. The boat tour was an hour, but felt so much shorter. We saw alot of the surrounding culture which keeps Geneva wealthy, i.e. the United Nations & World Trade Centre. It was so relaxing. Just being in the sunshine, exploring Lake Geneva on a boat with my bestie.
Pedal Boats on Lake Geneva
I think this was my favourite part of the whole trip. We had some serious alone time, just us two together, being stupid. I'd never done a pedal boat before, so it was more Stephen pedals & I take too many snaps. He knew that before we even started though.
We had amazing views of the lake, the Jet d'Eau & the harbour.
Little train of Geneva
By this time we were getting a little sick of our heavy bags & wanted a quiet tour. This precious little red train kept riding around town & we wanted our own turn. Going parts of Geneva we had yet to discover, we saw even more landmarks. Namely, the flower clock. Or the l'horlage fleurie (lol at me trying to act like I can speak French-I can thank google for that). Around 6500 flowers makeup this gorgeous piece. It's a nod to Genevas history & association with watched, and their recognition of nature. Pretty cute to look at, too.
We sat at the back, having a little cuddle during our what felt like private tour. We saw Genevas beach, small yet they do have one.
Our time was over so soon. We'd had such a busy weekend. but loved every second of it. I'm so glad we visited Geneva, it was the most perfect weekend & such a sweet little break. If only we could visit a different country every weekend, we would explore the world much sooner.
