i am laying on the couch in switzerland, in a little town called aubonne, looking out at lake geneva and the beautiful mountains. after 7 days of moving all around france…


(4 hotels, 2 planes, 3 trains, lots of car rides and walking around everywhere) i arrived to my family friend’s house yesterday and just reeeelaxed. the family made a delicious dinner (with this view) and then we walked around the little town in the evening. i caught up on some work and then slept until 1pm today! i haven’t done that in SO long, i must have been really needing sleep.

i will be here for a few days and might visit lausanne or montreuxย since they are so close by. the family has been teaching me french words and swiss traditions (how to cheers here, or that they kiss 3 times when they say hello) they have been so welcoming, it’s amazing. i will be doing recaps of my france adventures when i have a little time to catch up. we saw many champagne regions that i’ve never seen, so that was a treat. but after 25+ glasses of champagne, i think i will switch to wine for a while. ha.

on saturday, i will take a plane to florence and a train to tuscany. it’s so invigorating traveling alone. it’s funny, but i always feel like a real grown up when i arrive to my destination after not knowing the language and navigating through stations and unknown places. it can be overwhelming at times, but also such a good learning experience. it teaches you to be very observant, prepared, and aware.

i hope you have a great week, and i will check in again soon! there’s some fun posts this week, so stay tuned… xx, bri

    enjoy sitzerland.
    do you see the mountains from your place?
    i LOVE them a lot.


    That sounds amazing! I haven’t gotten to travel nearly as much as I’d like to (yet), but I can imagine that invigorating feeling of navigating through countries on your own! Best wishes for safe and wonderful travels!

    You should definitely make a trip to Montreux! It’s so beautiful and the views of the mountains and Lake Geneva can’t be beat. I live in Bern, an hour away, and we love going there for a stroll along the water. I’m looking forward to reading more about your travels: might have to make a trip to Champagne region next…

    Hi Bri, glad you like switzerland! Next time, you should also come to Zurich, you’d like it! Traveling alone is great, it clears your head and makes you feel strong, indeed. Have fun in Italy! Ciao!

    Beautiful Bri! Heads up when on trains. Never, never, never, for one second put your purse/bag down while loading or unloading on the train. Last year in montreux, Switzerland someone got my attention to distract me when coming off the train, then his friend grabbed my briefcase and ran. No good! But yes, like you said, being aware and alert is key. Safe travels to you gorgeous. Head high in confidence when going anywhere. I always gave off the energy ‘don’t even THINK about messing with me’ (you need it as a beautiful woman traveling alone) XO

    Your trip looks like so much fun! (I’ve been following on Instagram — so jealous!) Solo travel abroad is so empowering, I love seeing people take the opportunity to do it. Have fun, and rest up!

    Hi! I spent four months in Tuscany last fall in a little town called Arezzo (an hour south of Florence by train!). I highly recommend stopping by this town of you get a chance. And amazing view of the country side at the park on the top of the hill and incredible mom and pop Italian restaurants. Try pici pasta while in Tuscany!
