Photo Friday: Lake Geneva, Switzerland

I haven’t spent much time in Switzerland but that is about to change. This will be the first of many posts on this spectacular country. The little village of Villette near the city of Lausanne on Lake Léman (otherwise known as Lake Geneva) is about to become my new home for the next few years!

The mountains views here are breathtaking — and ever changing. It seemed like every weather and light shift brought entirely new perspective.

The Lavaux Vineyard Terraces extend for 30km along the shore of the lake. Part of the Unesco World Heritage list, these vineyards are stunning and a source of pride for the historic winemakers of the area.

Pinch me please — I will be living next to quintessential villages where locals slow down and savor life’s pleasures. I can’t wait for their joie de vivre to rub off on us …

  1. Oh my goodness…I am sooooo jealous! I can’t wait to read all about your adventures and your moving preparations!

  2. Wowee!!!! We will miss you stateside, but I especially can’t wait for next June! Stunning pictures.

  3. Wow! What made you decide to move there? That seems a bit longer than your usual trips? I think I’m supposed to be working but I got sucked in by all the great photos and reviews on this site!

    What a great success story this site is! Congrats, and happy travels to you too. Cathy

  4. OH my goodness. I could not agree more about Switzerland. It is the most peaceful, safe, and friendly place I have ever traveled. We hopefully will be bringing our kids there soon. So glad I found this website because we are planning to go vagabond with our family soon.
    Thanks for the inspiration!
