Lake Geneva in Lausanne, Switzerland

A long weekend in Lausanne and Montreux, Switzerland

With a limited number of days off work in a year, I love to make the most of the bank holidays with prolonged weekends away. For the early May bank holiday last month, I decided to do exactly that, heading to Lausanne in Switzerland!

My close friend Morgane, who I lived with in Australia, is actually studying in Lausanne, a city in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. This brought up the perfect opportunity to visit a country I had never been to and to reunite with her and another friend I had met in Australia, Charlotte. It was nice because Switzerland has never particularly been a country that I’ve been desperate to visit (there are many other countries in Europe that are further top of my hit list) so heading over I felt relaxed, with no pressure or high expectations.

However, I would soon become utterly impressed with the stunning scenery of the place!

Java, Indonesia: The top picks

Indonesia was one of my favourite countries travelling SE Asia, and that was mainly because there was so much to do and with so much variety. From delicious beaches to jaw-droppingly beautiful scenery, to action-packed activities, Indonesia seemed to have it all. And fortunately for us, we had a good chunk of time to spend exploring the culture-rich country. Java, home to the Country’s capital Jakarta, was a real treat to explore and we spent almost 2 weeks discovering every nook and crevice (well, not really, but it sure felt like it!).

A one day itinerary of Kampot, Cambodia

Kampot, a charming riverside town in Southern Cambodia is a spot I wished we had longer to explore.

We had one full day to make the most of our visit – here’s what we got up to.
