48 Hours in Geneva, Switzerland

Once upon a very boring class,
I glanced over my agenda and saw that I have yet to plan for the 1 week holiday we have here in France, called the Vacances Toussaint or the All Saints Holiday.
 I opened a new tab on my chrome browser and started typing, “fastest plane ride from Nantes, France” and one of the fastest + cheapest option came up on top.

‘Geneva,’

it said, hmm, I’ve always wanted to go to Switzerland!
I have been in it for a few hours inside a bus, absolutely strucked by its beauty, but I can barely count that as a trip as I had not spend the night, hear the locals speak, eat, walk, interact, and basically live, nor have I induldged myself in any of their habits and culture. 

 I checked my schedule and without looking up anything about Geneva, I booked my flight.
 I arrived midday from Paris, having spent the night at the airport (bc my plane leaves early and I don’t think there are any ways to get to the airport had I not been closeby) I was TIRED. As I got to my hotel room, I laid down for a minute and fell asleep for half an hour because I was THAT tired.  But then I got ready and left to see what Geneva has got to offer.
That night I saw Jet D’eau in the dark.
It says on Wikipedia that

“Five hundred litres (110 imp gal; 130 US gal) of water per second are jetted to an altitude of 140 metres (460 ft) by two 500 kW pumps, operating at 2,400 V, consuming one megawatt of electricity.[2][3][4] The water leaves the 10 centimetres (3.9 in) nozzle at a speed of 200 kilometres per hour (120 mph). At any given moment, there are about 7,000 litres (1,500 imp gal; 1,800 US gal) of water in the air.”
 
       
       
   
 
Q
What is my verdict on Geneva, you ask?
I liked it.

It wasn't crowded, people seem to enjoy a peaceful life and overall a very chill place to be in.
I am happy I got to see it for what it is.

Next, Z├╝rich!

What is in my Travel Make Up bag!

 
I have been so blessed with the ability to travel within and out of my job.
I might explain later how I manage to travel so much and how I have set my eyes on traveling as a goal, but for now I will let you into my little secret pouch of minimalistic make up that I bring along my journeys to see God’s finest lands.
These are it:
 
You might be wondering, but how do you apply them?
Well, i have brought with me this super compact travel sized brushes that are the perfect ‘all you needs’!
I also might carry a beauty blender (the black one) I forgot to inlude in the photo because it was on my table.
But the original beauty blender is the best and super versatile for different usage!
Anyways,
I should be going to bed an hour ago.
So I’ll see you on the next post!
 
X, nessie.

Day Out in Nantes Festival

Hi #TeamNessie, I have tried to convince myself to take it easy, given that taking your 30 kg luggage from one hotel to another every 3 days isn’t easy. I,alone, took it upon myself to see the festival happening in town, just down the street from the hotel I am currently in. I might have to prop my camera on top of random places, I apologize for that, haha!

In addition to the supper fun rides, there are countless candies, churros, amd other types of sweets available in beautifully decorated stands along the lines of the rides.

 

It had restored my fresh minds, being amidst happy children.

Whatever life throws at you, just know that God is watching, and He won’t give you a problem bigger than what He knows you can handle. Amen.

I’ll see you on another post, loved ones!

X, Nessie
