Page 4 of 15: Day One- Flight Lax-Boston-London-Geneva

We had the extra stop as I had purchased the tickets through FF miles from a friend. He accepted 1400 for the two tickets which was almost a $1000 savings off the regular airfare.

The flight involved the usual tedium, when the hell were we going to get there? Neither of us slept a wink, big surprise. Upon arrival in Geneva, both our backpacks were missing! We were lucky to be nearly the first in line, not too much of a hassle. Good news our packs were delivered that night.

After a shower, we set off on a walk through town and down to the Lake, stopping at Molino for lunch in their outdoor café. It was a nice sunny day. I had spaghetti Bolognese which was ok; Peg had a pizza.

We got to sleep somewhere around 6PM, and I was up around 4am so I took a stroll around town. I woke Peg up for an early breakfast at our hotel the Hotel central.

Hotel Central - great budget hotel very close to the lake, clean, with a comfortable bed and feather pillows. A nice shower (I love the adjustable height, I actually get to stand up straight for a shower!) Plenty of hot water, very nice staff. They had several classes of rooms. We had the standard, which worked out to about 100 dollars/night a bargain in Geneva.
