Europe Part 1: Lausanne, Switzerland

A sunrise walk to Lake Geneva and my first fondue experience are my souvenirs from  Lausanne, Switzerland. Nestled in the Jura Mountains, this city is incredibly charming.

Interesting facts about Lausanne

  • It is the site of the International Olympic Committee headquarters and is officially recognized by the committee as the ‘Capitale Olympique’
  • It is the smallest city in the world to have a rapid transit system
  • The Lausannes consume 4 tons of chocolate per day and the average resident drinks 40 liters of wine a year
Vineyards, Swiss chocolate, year-round skiing; does life get any better than this?
