But that's all I'm going to write about that because it's literally not worth a single extra moment of my thought.
Onto today! I went on a lovely boat cruise on Lac Leman (Lake Geneva) today before heading out to eat pho and then spending some time at the Palace Wilson. Christina and I managed to bump into Christine and 2 other ppl whose names I don't remember in Geneva. It's almost like being in NY where you bump into absolutely everyone on street corners!
What an amazing thing it is to have a beautiful natural lake in the middle of your gosh darn city. So many things about this place are unbelievable!
Christina and I took a boatride around Lake Geneva and took in some sights and sun. A little too much sun, it was like 89 degrees today, AGAIN. I would give anything to dip in a pool in this crazy heat where air conditioning is non-existant!
But here are some lovely pics for you to see!!
The area around Lake Geneva is really fantastic.
What else.. a million sailboats were out, and people were really friendly, waving to the tourists on the boats =) I even caught a picture of a guy.
We also went to Palace Wilson again tonight, and it was much less.. how do I say.. upsetting than it was last night. Don't ask, I can't bear to tell the story. But this place reminds me a lot of skybar. It's really cool and service is awesome, it's a beautiful setting and has 5 star service - you honestly can't go wrong! I think it's one of the most romantic, impressive places in the city. But the price tag that comes with it is unbelievable. So much so that it prevents large crowds from gathering. A coke is 10 francs, etc etc. But if you want a really lavish, gorgeous place to hang out, you really can't go wrong here.. if I had money, I'd be here EVERY NIGHT. In fact, I think I may just spend my next weekend here. Why not, right? Go in the pool for a bit, have a few iced teas and some lunch, maybe even visit the spa. Now that's a luxurious European holiday...
