Walking in the Winter Wonderland

02 Feb

If there’s anything that I miss right now, I should say it’s the warm weather. It’s currently -5 C and that’s still about to drop. My fingers are starting to numb as I type this text on my phone, can’t feel my lips anymore, my nose is probably even redder than Santa’s Rudolph, and the freaking tram to my French class has still not arrived.


I like winter and the fact that I can hit the slopes with my snowboard at least once a year.. It’s just that it gets tiring at some point. Especially when I need to dress in layers just to keep me warm. And although I’ve already gotten used to cold by living in Europe for years, I think I’m still better suited to warm weather.

Oh how I miss summer.. the sun, the heat, the pool, the beach, being able to wear flip flops and light breezy fabrics, and having ice cold beer or cocktails sur la terrasse..

Speaking of cocktails, I miss having this

strawberry daiquiri at the terrasse of Beau Rivage Palace while enjoying the beautiful view of lac Leman

Their daiquiri is really good, but I can’t say it’s the best daiquiri you can find in the French region of Switzerland, since we’ve been unlucky in finding other bars where they serve daiquiris. Kit, on the contrary, can attest that BRP’s caipirinha is the best he’s ever had.

I have to warn you though that these drinks are pricey (quite a good sucker punch to the stomach, I think!), but then, is there really anything not expensive in this country?!?

Well I guess that’s the price we pay for the nuts and olives that come with the drinks, the view, the place and the service.. Yeah, BRP’s service is really good. They did a good job when we wanted to eat at their Japanese restaurant Miyako.. I’ll tell you all about that though later. In the mean time, my tram is here. 😉

For BRP’s contact details, pls see our post on Anne-Sophie Pic.
