Europe Trip Part 3

I haven't updated this blog for a long time and I'd go through all of my posts and one thing I've noticed I haven't completed our Europe trip last year lol. So here's the part 3. 

Our fourth stop is Geneva, Switzerland.

If Paris has the Eiffel tower, London has Kensington Palace, North Wales has Conwy Castle then Geneva has Jet d'Eau, a water jet fountain. This majestic 140 m water fountain, the tallest in the world is the main attraction of the city, and one which cannot be missed. They said that it become a tourist spot since 1891. We also visited many places in Geneva. So thankful for our generous friends Caroline, Bong and his family to show us around the city. They are awesome tour guides.


This is not a statue. It is real :)


If you like swiss watches, this is a place to be :)


I've tasted the best chocolates at  Rhor chocolates store where royal families came by for a box of chocolates.


This is the Jet d'Eau (far right). The shots are not that great, it was raining at that time.


The biggest broken chair in front of United Nations


This is in Le Chateau' in Nyon


We visited the Le Diablerets, an hour away from Geneva. This is a city on top of the mountains. As you can see, there are many houses in the side of the mountains. They call it Swiss Chalets which means log houses.


There was a Suise- Canada parade when we were there, so we're able to see all of it.


The Alps of switzerland



We ate their racklettes, traditional suise food


The real swiss Chalet in the background.


 We had a great time in Switzerland. This is a must to see. I'm so glad that I am able to visit one of the great place in the world. God is good!
