Busy Weekend Around Geneva

My study abroad program is actually based in Geneva, but for the past few weekends, I have constantly traveled away from Geneva. I barely walked around Geneva even though I have been here for over 6 weeks. I decided to take a break and chill out in this past weekend. Initially I thought stay at home and probably study for a bit can be relaxing, but I ended up going out the whole weekend.

Our university took us to Art Basel, one of the biggest art fair in the world. The field trip took the whole day Friday. We traveled to Basel, which was a nearly 3-hour train ride one way. The art fair was indeed mind opening. I have been to a lot of museums but never art fair. New experience, great experience.  Continue reading “Busy Weekend Around Geneva”

A weekend up in the mountain: Interlaken & Jungfraujoch

We went into the mountainous area of Switzerland. The view high up at the top of Europe was breathtaking. The scenery of the lakes was my favorite of all the places I went in these past few weekends.

Right when we arrived at Interlake Ost station, we directly chose to go up to the top of Europe, Jungfraujoch. The train up is pretty slow, but the view outside just completely attracts you, so you don’t really feel it is very slow. It was cloudy and slightly raining the day we went. Even so, the view was still breathtaking. I am so jealously of the local people who can live with the view day by day.
