Switzerland, I am in you until the end of the week.
And I’m excited.
Last year I spent a night sleeping on the concrete floor of Geneva airport in between planes. Oddly, this was a pleasant experience, because everyone around me was speaking French and it made me feel at home.
This is why I’m never allowed to go to France: I don’t think I’d come back.
Anyway, flying out of the airport I looked out of the plane window and saw the mountains, and I thought I have to come back here properly at some point.
This week is that point.
I’m going over for DFRWS, and I’m not spending as much time there as I’d like, but hopefully it’ll be a nice introduction. I’ll be in Lausanne, staying at a hotel near the university, and wandering around in the evenings to see the sights and stuff.
Any suggestions for things I should do while I’m there would be gratefully received! I hate parties, loud noises and being around drunk people; love bookshops, quiet spaces, and nature. Suggestions, anyone?
