- So, how did your holiday [US: vacation] to Switzerland go? - I spent two weeks travelling through French-speaking Switzerland. I had never been there before and I completely fell in love with this country. I landed in Geneva which I found delightful with its breathtaking views of Lake Geneva and its many green spaces. I then hopped from one city to another - Fribourg, Neuchâtel, Lausanne - which all have an impressive medieval heritage. The whole country looks like a fairy tale! I also went on a hike to the top of Mont Tendre, where I was stunned by the panoramic view. - I knew that you would love it. We'll have to go back (there) together!

Getting that for you now...
