Summer in Switzerland, please

My experience in Switzerland is a perfect example of the truth of the saying "when one door closes, another opens." I went to law school during arguably the worst time I could have. I was expecting to get some great internship during my first summer, and in reality, I had nothing. So what is a girl to do? Study abroad in Geneva of course! Looking back, I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to live abroad once again because... sadly... it was probably my last time. I'll take my summer in Switzerland over a summer staring at the computer any day. 

our home for the summer

they just don't make buildings like they used to 

sailing from swiss to french waters 

chateau de chillon, quite possibly the cutest chateau ever 

Geneva was gorgeous at night 
United Nations 
amazing ceiling in one of the UN rooms  

real swiss chocolate yum

cows, fog, mountainside... sigh

gorgeous interlaken 

best view in the house 

the water color was unreal 

p.s. excuse the picture quality. I used to value the color of the camera (I just HAD to have the pink one) over the quality of the pictures :) 


  1. such amazing pictures.. i so want to visit there now!

  2. beautiful pictures mere! you can wear pink pants now that your camera is black :)

  3. Just found you via Denise (above :)) and I love your photos! I am excited to keep looking through to see how you went from NC to Texas and Switzerland to law!

  4. Is there anything better than being in Switzerland in the summer? The only thing I can think of might be being there in the winter to ski. And Chateau de Chillion is one of my favorites, too.
