Travel Diary: Geneva

This past weekend I went to Geneva to visit my Aunt and Uncle. What was supposed to be an easy flight out of Florence, direct to Geneva, turned it to a little bit more of a headache? I happened to wake up at 4 am and checked my phone for the time. I noticed that I had a text from a number I didn’t know and read it… It was a message from the airline saying my flight was canceled, and they would be in touch soon with rebooking options. Of course, I freaked out, and because it was 4 am, I couldn’t call to check. Luckily, though, it was only 10 pm at home, so mom was able to help me find a solution. There was another flight on a different airline that was leaving roughly around the time I was supposed to, so I quickly booked that flight and was on my way!

Once I landed, Aunt Lisa and Nate were there to greet me! We drove back to their house and dropped my stuff off and headed out to lunch by the lake! It was a beautiful, sunny day, so we enjoyed yummy bagel sandwiches by the water. We then went back to their house and hung out a bit, and Nate studied, and I worked on papers until Anna and Sam got back from school. We all hung out that evening and had a yummy tapas at their house! Nate, Sam and I then went to the movies to see Batman vs. Superman, while Anna was at another movie with friends. After the movie, we all went back to their house and then Nate, and I went out to the bar down the street to hang for a bit! It was so weird, but it was nice to catch up with him!

Saturday morning, we all slept in and took a super lazy day. It was cold and rainy out, so Anna and I watched the first two Captain America movies! We literally just lounged all day, which was so nice! I haven’t really had the opportunity to do that while here, or if I have, it wasn’t in a comfy house, so it was nice! That night Nate, Sam and I went to the movies again and saw Captain America 3, which was WAY better than the movie the night before! Anna was at a sleepover, so she didn’t join!

Sunday morning we all got up and went to Escape Geneva, which was so fun! We did the intermediate level, and it was apocalypse themed. We struggled a bit in the beginning, but managed to get out with 2 minutes to spare! We had lunch at a pub across the street and then went back to the house to drop the boys off! Aunt Lisa, Anna and I then headed to Morges for a fashion, food and art festival. Though the weather wasn’t great, it was so fun to see Morges, and it was beautiful. There were some interesting things at the festival, but Anna found some cute jewelry! We then went back to the house and back to studying and lounging! We finished the night off with some yummy Italian food and called it a night!

Stuck in Escape Geneva

Monday morning I went with Aunt Lisa to drop the kids off at school, before heading to the airport. It was such a fun trip, and I can’t wait to go back in a few weeks since it’ll be my last time at their house in Switzerland! It was a super relaxing weekend with family, and I was sad to see it end!
