Évian-les-Bains


It was a surprisingly long and even tedious drive, and we arrived at least an hour later than the optimistic predictions provided by our various GPS units.

We obviously hit rush hour (in actuality that time when drivers are unable to rush) as we drove into Switzerland, through Geneva, and then back into France.

Anybody who thinks roundabouts solve all traffic problems needs to spend some time driving in Europe.

En tout cas, we are here, checked in with  a nice view of the lake from our balcony, and currently sipping some wine in the lounge.

  1. I hope you didn't actually drive through Geneva, but instead circumnavigated it. I've driven in Geneva a couple of times -- once pre-GPS -- and did not find it an enoyable experience. The worst was when I drove to the Hotel les Armures in Old Town, with crooked one-way streets with street signs I couldn't read. Enjoy Evian-les-Bains.

    1. Yes, we drove through part of Geneva, and around 5 p.m. It was stop-and-go all the way. The same was true of the drive from there to our hotel. We're happy to leave our car parked for awhile.
