Trip To Switzerland – January 2011

As you already know, I’m on a quest to tame 12 monkeys by the end of this year. But as busy as I can get while taming those monkeys, I promised myself to keep having a life. And, most important, keep traveling.

So, I spent the New Year Eve at my sister, in Geneva, Switzerland. There’s not much to tell about my staying there, other than I thoroughly enjoyed being with my family. Geneva is a rather small town and Switzerland is a very quiet and peaceful country. This year, in particular, I didn’t stretch much outside the town. But while I was doing my regular walks in the morning, I took my camera with me.

A picture is worth a thousand words, they say. In this case, this post should be 15.000 words long, because there are 15 pictures in it. Just click on any of them if you wanna see the bigger version. Enjoy!

Geneva - more old town
Geneva - even more old town
Yeap, you guessed, it's the old town of Geneva
What can I say, I love old town in Geneva

What you wanna do? I don't know, what you wanna do?
Have you seen my watch? Think I lost my watch around here...
It's freezing cold, I'm outta here

  1. I’ll join your trip to tame those monkeys. We have a similar goal for the first month of this new year. But I want to go to Spain to meet my roots. Furthermore, a complete trip to Europe would be great too.
    I like those Switzerland pictures. Have a nice trip! πŸ™‚

    Happy New year.

  2. Either you took your walks very early in the morning…either there aren’t that many people in Geneva! πŸ™‚
    Nice pics (and comments)! Especially the one with the happiness…I can say that you made my year with that! πŸ™‚

    • It was the first day of the year, people were staying in their beds. Most of them. But even during the weekdays Geneva is not very crowded.

    Dragos, you really have talent for photography! The photo of Lake Lemon, the ducks and birds are amazing!

    By the way, yesterday i found out an new monkey to tame, i realized, i can sometimes talk in a way to hurt others feelings pretty much, it will be very beneficial for me and my surrounding if the monkey is tamed. huh.

  4. Hey Dragos, my Uncle lives in Switzerland and to say, it is the place I actually dream of visiting some day. India is pretty far actually. Like your first commenter, I just feel like I want to travel the world, enjoy cultures and make friends from across illiterate borders.

  5. next time, pls come and visit us in Annecy, it is in France, close to Geneva, a very(*) nice place (mountains + lac) where you can practice many different outdoors activities (paraglading, ski, canyoning, via ferrata, snowshoeing, … depending on the season)
    (*) I know , I know , French are said to be chauvinistic πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰

    • Been there in 2009 and enjoyed it a lot. Ate fondue at one of the restaurants near the canal and felt just great. It was a one day visit but I liked the city a lot πŸ™‚

      • Yes! fondue, tartiflette, raclette … very light food πŸ˜‰
        Hopefully we have opportunities to move and burn thoses calories !
        I forgot to mention that we also have a small airport where you can land next year (don’t forget the flying-monkey, not the easiest one to tame !)

  6. Travelling all around the world is one of my target, in which I can keep exploring myself to new things and new “wow” in this world. I wouldn’t want to work on a 9-5 job for 30-40 years and end up a lifeless journey.
    So my blog is one of the target which I will build the channel to monetize and make income for my targets, while keep travelling + updating blog everywhere in the world πŸ˜€

    • What a thought man! I like the idea. I’d want to do that too. A great sip of thought with coffee to my morning πŸ™‚

      • Thanks Jaky πŸ˜€
        It’s an attitude and passion to fight for that target and make it real πŸ˜€
        For me, life should be meaningful, instead of doing the same thing everyday for that monthly cookies(Salary).
