“I truly believe that travelling is a mindset, more about the way you explore, interact with and see the environment you’re in and less about being away from home. If you’re curious about the place you’re in, learning new things and looking at everything with fresh eyes then you’re travelling. Sure being in a foreign country may make it a bit more exciting, but it’s not a requirement.”
When visiting London for a weekend break earlier this year I found myself thinking the same thing over and over – “This place is incredible and I used to live here. I hardly explored at all, what was I doing?!”. I then made a vow to myself that I would get out and explore my home town of Geneva in Switzerland, determined not to make the same mistake twice.

I was really surprised by the variety of architecture on offer, and loved the different colours splashed around in every direction. Here’s a small selection of what I found!
