When in Switzerland, Check the Weather
This weekend was going to be out of Basel, hence, we looked at weather forecasts of various cities in Switzerland and a sunny Sunday put Geneva on the weekend agenda.
"Always check the weather forecast before making travel plans (unless you love adventures and unpleasant surprises), a rainy day can totally piss on your happiness. Remember Zurich?"
While you can always travel between cities on the eurorail at any time you want, given the great frequency and services but an organised traveller usually books tickets in advance and manages discounts. We booked our tickets on the Basel SBB app and got a whopping 50% discount on our tickets. You can download the application from the Android/IOS App store.
The downside of this however, if you miss the train, you miss it. Ensure safe travels, by planning your day around the arrival and departure times.
Travelling to Geneva?
Make sure you buy the Geneva pass for 1 or 2 or 3 days and your itinerary pretty much reads itself. The pass offers various options for river cruises, day tours, discounts, cable car rides etc. I highly recommend buying the pass, especially if this is your first trip to Geneva.
