Settling in and Exploring

Time has flown by since I have arrived at the Geneva airport early Saturday morning. Arriving to a big hug from my host mom and stopping at a real French bakery on the way home for a fresh baguette definitely got me “off on the right foot”.

After five days with the family I have begun to settle into a pretty easy going routine starting at 7 am: – driving kids to school – walking the dog – nap/watching tv – lunch – go explore a near by town – pick up kids – homework time – dinner – relax and bed

Despite enjoying relatively relaxed days (compared to university life of classes, teaching, studying and hockey) I am exhausted by 930 and head to my room to catch as many zzz’s as possible.

Yesterday, Griffin (the dog) took a walk down to the pond. It was absolutely serene and beautiful. I plan to bring a book and lunch down here once the weather gets warmer! Here are a few photos:

Yesterday I also spent the afternoon walking around a beautiful city called Nyon in Switzerland. It is about a quarter of the way up Lake Geneva (Lac Leman). There is a wonder castle, and I also stopped into a bakery to enjoy my first pain au chocolate. C’était délicieux !!! This city is absolutely stunning – I can’t wait to return!

À la prochaine, bises.
