After teaching in Geneva on April 9 for Hillside Communications, I’m enjoying four days in stunning Annecy, France (an hour away from Geneva). Annecy gives you a cozy combination of Lake Como (lake and Alps); Lucerne (lake, Alps, Swiss/German architecture, biking along the lake), Venice (canals), Geneva (classy shops), Norwegian fjords (jaw dropping bike rides along the water) and so much more.
