Why Geneva is the perfect place to spend Christmas.
Its that crunching sound you hear while walking through dry snow. The cold air that creeps up your nose and stings a little. The smell of trees, mountains and wood that flows through the air. Its those exact things that I love from the winter. Walking through the cold streets, people holding a hot cup of coffee to keep their hands warm. The big jumpers and big scarfs that cover your face but always tend to slowly move down and leave your nose to freeze. When you open the door and make your way inside you can smell the scent of hot chocolate as you warm your hands next to the fireplace. Its those moments that leave me feeling in pure happiness.
We made our way from the white beach to the white mountains a few days ago. A special occasion left us on a plane straight from Bali to Italy! There we started our road trip with as our next destination Geneva!
Through the snowy hills, the green woods and over icy water we made our way. When arriving in Geneva you will notice the amazing atmosphere. The Christmas feeling takes over as coloured lights light up the streets. On every corner you will find the cosiest cafes full with people warming up their cold hands with a hot coffee and a slice of cake that Geneva is so famous for. I believe it is the perfect location to spend your Christmas holiday with your family, your friends or your loved one. You walk through the beautiful streets as you look over the lake with the snowy mountains in the background, the view is incredible. White swans take over the lake and create the most beautiful image. Its a fairytale city that creates the perfect Christmas atmosphere.
If you are looking for a place with delicious food and a great atmosphere then I definitely recommend you to visit Chez Philippe.
Its a beautiful restaurant with the most amazing service as well as the most delicious food. Its perfect for a great lunch, dinner or a special occasion!
I ordered the roasted rainbow beets salad with ginger which was absolutely delicious. Beautiful colours took over the plate creating a little piece of art. Fresh flavours where combined with the zingy flavour of ginger. Creating an explosion of flavour in every spoonful.
For a wintery soup that will warm you up you have to order the squash soup with pumpkin seeds. Its very creamy and full of flavour. A perfect cosy and warming meal for those cold days!
