    Off to Geneva this morning. We farewell our little apartment in Paris early and head to the airport. As a footnote, I don't recommend Air France. Firstly they don't include your baggage in your ticket and secondly are quite pedantic about individual bag weights even if as a group you are much lighter than required. Geneva airport is a bit weird in that it has a Swiss side and a French side. Therefore two sets of customs etc. Now to pick up the car from French side. Yes well um! Not an easy task as Toni discovered and staff at airport not that helpful. We eventually got there though and picked up a nice little Peugeot 308 wagon. Just got all the luggage in the back. By the way 6 speed manual and you change gear with your right hand not left. Driving on the right and changing with the right at the same time. I didn't know my left from right for a bit. Just about mastered it now though. Our hotel was in a great location right near the transport hub, restaurants and other facilities. The drive down to Geneva from airport is easy and provides you the first glimpses of the Swiss country side and lifestyle.Tomorrow we're in for a science lesson, off to CERN.Read more
