Geneva, Switzerland: Sleep, Eat, Play

Geneva was a city that we had wanted to travel to since we participated in Model United Nations in High School.  Geneva is the headquarters of Europe’s United Nations.  It’s also the headquarters to the Red Cross, global hub for diplomacy and banking and hosts the highest number of international organizations in the world.  We were lucky enough to travel to Geneva during the summer months, which allowed us to see the city alive with crowded streets, boats on the lake and blue skies.

Barcelona – El Born/ La Ribera Districts

Having stayed in this area we got to explore and found it to be one of our favorite spots to dine, wine and play! This past trip we stayed at the W Barcelona for the night on our way back from Mallorca and spent most of our time in El Born/ La Ribera after a hot lap through the Mercat de La Boqueria.

Mallorca

So why did we pick Mallorca – why not? Mallorca is part of the Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean known for its beach resorts and protected coves. The island sits off the coast of Spain (a 30 minute flight from Barcelona) and is a popular holiday destination for Europeans. Yes Europeans – not Americans…which makes it that much better! The island is actually bigger than we expected and has very different terrain. Flat land, mountains and fertile plains. If this place isn’t on your list of travel destinations…it will be after this post! (We hope!) Continue reading “Mallorca”
