So my best friend is super impressive and works for the UN in Geneva. She's been bugging me to come visit her for years, and now I don't really have an excuse anymore. So that's where I spent my Columbus Day weekend. I enjoyed Switzerland so much. It was so clean! We had plenty of good food and wine and I got to see how she lives. Probably the coolest thing we saw was the Olympic Museum in Lausanne. That's the hometown of the father of the modern Olympics, Baron Pierre de Coubertin. In fact when he died his body was buried in Switzerland and his heart was buried in Greece. It was an incredible museum, very interactive and surprisingly emotional. The music throughout the museum was fantastic and really helped create the atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area. It was a lovely visit and I can't wait to go again!

All I do is win.
Hard to believe that tug of war used to be an Olympic sport.
I remember staying up super late watching the US women's gymnastics team win the gold in 1996. There was a leotard with all of their autographs. So cool.
A flag from the very first Olympic Games. Pretty amazing.

So excited to spend more time with my bestie!
Nespresso is impressive.
