Anyway, we refused to let ourselves get depressed and decided to get the best out of our day. Instead of travelling to another country, we chose to stay in Geneva and visit the scenic vineyard region at the foot of the French Jura mountains. So, we took the bus to the train station and there we got into a little regional train that drove us to the small village of Russin.
When we were there in October the weather was quite wintery. Although the vineyards were magnificent with their fiery fall foliage and the sun was shining wonderfully, the air was extremely crisp and a strong northern wind (bise) was blowing. The landscapes were mindblowing, the colors so soul-uplifting and the Mont-Blanc stood proudly in the horizon. Amazing!
