ABOUT US

We often hear people moan about how boring Geneva is. We really couldn’t agree less. The idea behind the website is to uncover and discover Geneva from every angle and share our experiences with likeminded people.

We’ve found the city to be beautiful, culturally rich and welcoming.

Our site is unapologetically subjective reflecting our own choices, preferences and tastes.

We hope to give you a bit of flesh around the story, colour, personal observations and insights, with the aim to celebrate Geneva.

Of course, the website has also given us the perfect excuse to eat and drink our way around the city!

I am curious about life, which means I’m seldom bored. I love Geneva and enjoy getting under its skin.

As a journalist and communications consultant I enjoy writing stories that make people sit up and notice.

My other big passion is yoga. As a qualified teacher (500 hours), I love to share this passion with my students.

See my article about yoga in Geneva.

I grew up in South Africa and have lived in Berlin, Paris and London before moving to Geneva in 2016.

I moved to Geneva from Canada in 2015 with my family.  Coming from central Canada, I was pleasantly surprised by how mild the winters are here in Geneva.  If you want cold, go to central Canada in January.  You can ask my parents who talk about the weather every time we talk.  I love Geneva and I continue to be amazed with its beauty and vibrancy.

In Canada, I worked as an interior designer/architect for 6 years.  This career gave me a chance to explore my love of design, color, planning and project details.  It was only after we moved to Geneva I that I discovered my interest in front-end web design.  I also love exploring the city and its surrounding area not only seeking for new fun places and activities for our son but also looking for new and interesting restaurants and attractions.  I’m a jogger and I love running along the lakeshore close to where we live.

I grew up in São Paulo, Brazil, and moved to Geneva in 2004 to go to university. It was a tough adjustment (I was simply not prepared for how cold winter is over here), but today I can’t imagine living somewhere else. The quality of life we have here is unbeatable.

Geneva was also where I discovered my passions: writing, photography, food and wine. I talk about these things and more through my Instagram account, @brightaylor and on Twitter, @Bri_GHTaylor

CARO BLACKWELL

Contributor – Photographer – Social Media

I am Caro a passionate foodie and wine lover, photographer and traveler. Yes I’m the annoying one that always has to photograph my food before eating it!

I love my life in the Genevois region having moved here over ten years ago from the UK. The mountains in the winter and lakeside in the summer. I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, Asia and lived in the Caribbean as a chef on a charter yacht for several years.

I’m a CIM marketing professional specializing in digital and social media, a wordpress web designer and I qualified with a diploma from the Photography Institute as a professional photographer. My food passions are indulged on my blog Taste of Savoie and my photography is showcased on Caro Blackwell.com and on Instagram you can see what I eat and where I travel.

I love seeking out new places to eat, things to do and to see in Geneva and the beautiful region I live in.

I am from Charlottesville, Virginia, USA, and moved to Geneva in 2015 with my husband after living in France and Spain. I love how international Geneva is for a small city, and how easy it is to spend time on the lake, biking, or in the mountains!

Geneva is where I discovered my passion for bringing stories to life  through pen and social media. I work as social media coordinator for an international organization.

 I’m also passionate about travel and all things languages and linguistics. I’ll be the one taking pictures of road signs in Welsh…

Swiss foods to try Geneva

LAURA FROM LETS EXPLORE

Travel Content Writer

I was born in Amsterdam, but have left the Netherlands many years ago. After having lived in France, I moved to Geneva in 2003 and met my French-Swiss husband. We now have two children, and they would not want to live anywhere else but here. I love the nature that surrounds Geneva, and consider ourselves lucky!

Coming from a flat country below sea level, I love the fact that on a grey day with low clouds, you could choose to drive up the mountain to catch some sunbeams!

I have a passion for travel, food, and learning about different cultures and write about that on my blog called Let’s Explore. It is a family travel blog which also has a recipe series. This recipe series has been very enriching!
