While I was in Montreux, Switzerland and waiting for some tea to brew…a storm was brewing over Lake Geneva. In a matter of minutes the clouds came over the mountains and engulfed the sun and turned a sunny and peaceful sky into a threatening scene.I was very impressed by the power of nature on display over this lake.

Lake Geneva is full of surprises.

Montreux, Switzerland comes eighth on my list of day trips from Geneva. Lake Geneva is the absolutely gorgeous background to Montreux. The lake promenade is dotted with cafesrants, restaurants and lots of benches for simply sitting down and admiring the views.
