But the truth is we had a pleasant time together as a family! Nicholas is big enough now to enjoy it. He is very curious and I love watching him explore all of theses new places we're taking him. We flew to Geneva, Switzerland then rented a car and drove to Marseille, South of France. From there, we stopped at Monaco and stayed a night in Nice (Since Monaco is crazy expensive). Then drove up to Milan, Italy and then back to Geneva. The good thing of driving was we could see a lot of the breathtaking views from French Riviera and the country side of France and Italy, but the down side.... a lot of tollroad! We had to pay an expensive fee to go through a huge tunnel, that later we learned it was the Mont Blanc Tunnel, a road tunnel in the Alpes. And the funny/silly thing was that hubby and I were like how much did you say? But we're just crossing it... we didn't know if we were on a wrong road going to a ski resort or something. Dummy Tourists!
Switzerland is the most beautiful country that I've been so far!!!! And we explored only few places around the Lake Geneva Region. For me the highlight was the Chateau de Chillon (Chillon Castle). Goregeous!!! A castle by the lake with extraordinary views all around.
Here are some pics from Switzerland. I'll try to post more pics from the other places.

|Nicholas enjoyed every minute of it!|
|As we went to hide from the cold by getting some coffee our lil guy quickly made some new friends.|
