POSTCARD LANDSCAPES

I cannot emphasize enough on how the Geneva countryside is beautiful! It's serene atmosphere, smooth and welcoming landscapes make it a great place to walks and ride a bike...

One of my favorite tours consists of walking up the flanks of the Salève mountain in France (pic 8), going down towards Switzerland and crossing the border in Troinex (pic 7), then walking back through the fields in the direction of Veyrier (pics 1, 2 & 10).

I hope that those pics will give you a glimpse of my 2 hours journey through the back-roads that surround my village.

  9. Rosa, this will be my third try to leave you comment, the other two was having problem, and kept on send me "Blogger Problem" note. So, hoping this one will go through.

    I was saying that I could live long in this village of yours. The beauty and the pure air, will certainly make me happy and healthy. You are lucky to live in the picturesque country like this. I can only wish ... but hey, who knows ya...?

    ELRA: Strange... The air isn't as pure as it seems. Geneva is quite a polluted place! Yes, I'd love to have you as neighbor.
