Yet another stop on our Franco-Swiss vacation – Lausanne.
Situated on the north shore of Lac Leman (Lake Geneva), Colette thought that it had enough to warrant a two-night stay, and she was right.
The town stretches from the lake high up into the hillside, with sections ranging from rowdy to upscale to dead quiet. A little something for everybody, and we thoroughly enjoyed our little something here.
Normally we try to stay away from other tourists, but we opted for a quick afternoon boat tour to catch the city from a different angle, and Coronavirus worked in our favor – an almost empty boat. Nice! Beautiful blue water, blue skies, European countryside and vineyards.
Probably not on the return list, but we’d certainly recommend it!

Every Which Way
It has to be some serious work handling the tiller on this big girl.

To The Moon
The Sauvabelin Tower looks like a rocketship ready to go. It offers a great view over the city and Lake Geneva.
Amazing geometry inside the Lausanne Cathedral
You don’t realize just how tall some of these buildings are until you’re looking down at the from a bridge. Lausanne is a very hilly city.
Well, no sails involved, but if you want to get out and spend a day on the water this is the way to do it!

My Two Loves
Colette loves the mountains and the water, and here she gets them both.
