On the Road: Montreux

Château de Chillon Montreux

This time I crossed the border to the French part of Switzerland!

Auberge de jeunesse montreux

We arrived on Friday evening and just enjoyed the beauty of the place. Our hostel in Montreux, Auberge de Jeunesse, was just in front of the lake, so we just watched the sunset from the benches by the water and chatted until we got hungry. After a dinner that was delicious but took absolutely AGES to appear, we went back to the hostel and had some drinks outside.

The idea was to visit at least something on our relaxing weekend trip. I guess we took that out of the list when we walked on Saturday morning until Château de Chillon (fun fact: chillon = ‘cry baby’ in Spanish).

Pool Villeneuve

After feeling we had done something with our day (especially after the party until 5 am the night before) we walked until Pool Villeneuve and had lunch.

Zurich Together

In the afternoon we basked in the sun until it got late and we walked to dinner in town. At night, we ended up at a disco with sand on the floor I would not recommend, so we just went back to the hostel and stayed awake chatting in our rooms until who knows what time.

I realized we could literally just have stayed in Zurich and organized a pajama party with the so few activities we did, but also that company is what makes a trip spectacular, and we definitely had great company.

I get it now, and I surrender to its beauty. Continue reading “On the Road: Nice & Fragonard”

Life Bits #1: Zurich & Davos

I love how fast I can capture the world with my phone. I only bring my camera to big occasions (for sure not to work or the lake) but my phone is always with me and ready to photograph.

I’ve recently set aside for a while the VSCO app with which I usually edit all my photos and started using the app HUJI that brings a cool vintage touch. I love the light effects and the date on the photos, it brings me back to my parents’ film camera and photos by the beach.

Check out some of the photos I took from June 30th to today July 18th! Continue reading “Life Bits #1: Zurich & Davos”

Portugal & Spain – Part II – Spain

Processed with VSCO with e3 preset

Like I promised, I am slowly (and finally!) showing you the photos of my last trips.
In February, after going to Portugal, I continued to Spain, in particular the South of Spain, with its magical and gorgeous cities I immediately fell in love with.
