Geneva – Day One
22nd of September
Lately because it’s not really tourist season anymore, it’s been really easy just meandering down to the train station and hopping on the next train to your destination. It’s usually a much shorter journey than the trips that they give you when you reserve a seat too, which is great for us! So today was no exception we got on a train to Geneva which isn’t too far away. I got to read my book and relax for an hour or so and before we knew it we were in Geneva!
We had passed through here before when we flew from Bordeaux to Madrid and the airport was great so we were expecting good things. We have been to so many picturesque towns, so when we arrived at Geneva main station we were a little disappointed. Trying to find a tram and bus was a nightmare and even a local who wanted to help us couldn’t give us an explanation. After me getting a little annoyed and begging Rhys to get a taxi, with no joy. I decided to take action and study the map for a good 10 minutes … I decided we should take the tram into the centre of town and catch a bus from there. Even when we got into the centre there was an intricate map on how to get to the various bus stops around. After walking in the wrong direction, twice! we found our stop and our bus came shortly after.
