      Day 3🇨🇭

      July 23, 2022 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Woke up in Lugano at 6:00. There was a train leaving for Les Diablerets at 7:00 - for that destination we had to change 4 trains, and it took a total of 6h and 18m.
      The first train was Lugano-Zurich, and I’m mentioning it because it passes through the world’s longest railway tunnel, at 57 kilometres and takes 20 minutes to do so! Our goal today was to get to Glacier 3000 and that’s achievable only by going to Les Diablerets, getting a bus to Col du Pillon and from there the cable car to the top of the mountain. Glacier 3000 is a Swiss company that operates different cable cars in the area, and this particular one is a bridge from two different peaks at 3000 metres above sea level. The “peak walk” as it is called, is the only suspension bridge connecting two peaks!
      The weather today was cloudy and misty but at least not rainy. The altitude made it a bit hard to breathe in the beginning but after walking a few minutes we got used to it. We were the first in our group of cable car on the peak walk so we got a bit of time for ourselves for photos and enjoying the view. In the beginning I was a big scared of the bridge cause I was only looking down (first ever thing NOT to do on a nearly transparent bridge) but then I got used to it. We got to the opposite peak and the view was beautiful. The wind was rather cold though - we were dressed correctly but there were people in shorts and we felt sorry for them 😂.

      Continuing part 2!!

      Geneva Day 1

      July 18, 2023 in Switzerland ⋅ ⛅ 29 °C

      Idk if i would even count this as a Geneva day because it was spent mainly in transport. I woke up to check out and then left my luggage with the hostel and went down to the beach with Amber and Nieve. And honestly, I slept for the entire 3 hours that we laid there LOL. After that, we had to share one last ice cream together- I got the classic, mango and lemon and it was scrumptious. We went back to the hostel where I got a quick munch, seeing as I probably wouldn’t end up eating again until the next day. I took the shuttle to the airport where I met Amber and Nieve who had taken a different shuttle. We spent our last moments together in the airport- which was nice bc I think we would’ve missed each other if we were around Corfu for any longer 😙. We said our goodbyes and went separate ways😞. Not just saying this just bc i know that they’re reading this, but it was honestly one of the hardest goodbyes yet because I spent pretty much every waking moment in Corfu with them, whereas so far I’ve been bouncing around different friends. But if there’s one thing that I’ve learned when solo travelling, it’s that it’s full of goodbyes, or see you laters.
      And so, off I went on the plane, first to Naples- WHICH WAS DELAYED BY AN HOUR. This stressed me out bc I only had a 2 hour layover there before catching the next flight to Geneva. Thankfully, my second flight was also delayed, so I didn’t have to worry about missing it- trust me, I was VERY worried. Something that was nice though was that I had the whole aisle to myself on the second flight, so I slept nicely. Shortly after, I landed in Geneva and made it to my hostel safely, for a much needed rest.
