As a budding Travel Blogger in Geneva, I’m regretting only staying in this Swiss city for three days.
But what are you gonna do?
Obligations and moneys and such.
You know how it is.
But I digress.
So without further ado.
I present to you.
Words and pics.
From day number two.
Vacation Allocation For The United Nations
Sorry. I don’t know why I’m spitting such hot rhymes today. I’ll tone it down.
The Geneva location is the second largest of the UN’s four office sites and hosts the Palais Des Nations, a building originally used by the League of Nations. Over 8,000 meetings of nations are held there every year.
It’s big. It’s beautiful. And we got to see it.
Touring The International Red Cross And Red Crescent Museum
Meh. I wasn’t that impressed with The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum.
A few of the exhibits here are interesting or creatively done. But I would’ve liked to see more historic information and specific past successes than the odd mix of exhibitions that they do have.
My main issue with this museum was the same reason that others may enjoy it: it is geared towards families and school groups. I support that sentiment (get ‘em caring about the welfare of others while they are young), but I’m not in the right age group.
Anyways, here are some pics and fun captions:
Mini Train Tour Of Old Town
This was a fun little tour.
I felt like I was on one of those tiny little trains that you see kids ride in malls. Which is always a nice feeling.
But we probably should have done this the first day. We missed this Geneva Tour on day one though, so we just threw it in when we had extra time on our second day.
I definitely recommend it to start your trip in Geneva.
Patek Phillipe Museum
I don’t recommend it unless you’re staying in Switzerland for an extended vacation.
I don’t know. Watches? I just couldn’t get into it.
I can’t relate to that craft. Plus we couldn’t bring our cameras or phones.
A Travel Blogger Ends His Day
After any long day, it’s important to celebrate.
So we stopped somewhere on the way home, and I ate an éclair.
