Traveler: Geneva, Chamonix, Italy

I had an absolutely fabulous spring break in Switzerland and Italy (and a quick day trip to France) almost two weeks ago. The food was incredible -- gruyere cheese fondue in Geneva, as well as mounds of pasta and incredible wines in Italy. The sights were gorgeous -- the tall Jet d'Eau in Geneva, bustling San Marco Square, the Rialto Bridge, and the detailed Duomo in Florence. And of course, it was so great to use my (fairly rusty) French again! Here are a few of my favorite shots - and there were A LOT.

The "world's best gelato" in Tuscany (it was the best I've ever had!)

After a Tuscan wine tasting and lunch -- amazing!
