... North into France to Evian. I didn't see anything particularly stunning that makes their water better than anywhere else, but it is a nice town at the foot of the mountains and was worth a visit. Our final day was pretty much a washout, but fortunately our AirBNB guy has a massive TV and so we had a chillout day, catching up on some schooling, playing Monopoly and watching a couple of movies. Next stop, back into France to Champagne. :-)
My stay in Geneva has been a wonderful repose for me and very necessary before my next big adventure where I know I will be seeing lots of sights. In addition to relaxing and getting a lot of work done, I did manage to get out and about a bit and even make some lovely friends.

... visit to the Olympic museum was a disappointment due to the fact that the museum was closed for renovations. We managed to take a stroll around the Olympic park which consists of the gardens between the museum and Lake Geneva and a number of sport related sculptures. The site of the Olympic flame is also within the borders of the park. The museum was founded on the 23rd June 1993 by Juan Antonio Samaranch. After 23 months of renovation the museum reopened on the 21st December 2013
