Ever since my brother and his friends stayed there during college I dreamed of seeing the Matterhorn and Zermatt, both of which exceeded my expectations. I hiked, ate mountain lunches en plain air and checked into a couple of hotels that were just delightful! The weather was idyllic with blue skies and few clouds which made photographing the  majestic views of the Matterhorn a dream come true.

Yesterday was a difficult day between me and Wordpress, the program I use to compose these posts. They published my ode to Geneva before it was primed. So here's round two of Getting My French on in Geneva, Switzerland which includes the highlights of a low-light day: It's been a great first day of my Best of the Alps trip. First stop, Geneva. My French is rusty, but my photography is up to par. Enjoy these photos from today's walkabout in this timeless city. Please ignore the rain, because I did and had a great time!
