TRAVEL TALK: Checking In

Checking in from Hotel Mandarin in Geneva.

Bern was wonderful - an eccentric city that is a mix of ancient and modern and has a wonderful character. I've taken lots of photos!

Geneva is a self-conscious city, but very pretty with the Rhone flowing through it and Mont Blanc towering over it. Went to the Cathderal de St Pierre in the old city for a performance of Hayden's "Creation" and also managed to attend a morning service in the Russian Orthodox Church which resonates with a spiritual energy that moves one to tears. Beautiful place. Rest of the time has been taken up with business; I'm pleased to say my husband's presentation went down well.

Onto Zurich tomorrow then Monday we fly to Croatia. Hope the weather there is as good as it has been here - clear and sunny.

Hope everyone is keeping well and busy.

So glad to hear you're having a ball and that the weather is cooperating!

I also love Geneva - they say it's even more spectacular in the winter when it's covered in snow!
