Chillon Castle in Montreux

Screen Shot 2014-10-02 at 5.31.19 PM
History is defined as the lore of human behaviour through time; therefore, to appreciate the present you must understand the past. One-hour train ride from Geneva, Switzerland and in the town of Montreux is the Chillon Castle, a historical monument, and one that must be visited.

Surrounded by the sea and detailed with painted walls, stove tiles, glassware, art, and many more architectural remains the Castle is a maze itself, it’s fit for a game of hide and seek.

It is pictures that can capture the minor detail but to get the full experience it must be seen by the naked eye. Just for now though check out the arts page, does it do it justice you ask?
Probably not.

The beautiful Geneva

It started with nothing more than a casual stroll in the City of Geneva. Without expectations it feels a little like home, it’s balanced between quiet and busy and with very little tourists.

The photograph blurs the boundary between the natural and artistic; it’s the plain beauty and perfect calm that sets it apart. You can’t help but be transfixed by the sound of the water jet fountain, the greenness of the grass, the ducks swimming in the lake, and the total scenery.

Alternatively the signature Rolex and Patek Philippe shops shape the class of the city. The ‘look but you can’t touch’ concept comes into play, but with a museum of watches window-shopping becomes rather enjoyable.

Jusqu’à la prochaine fois!
