We experienced a truly Swiss experience this weekend! Thanks to the International Geneva Welcome Centre (CAGI) we visited the villages of Les Charbonnières and Romainmôtier, in the neighboring canton of Vaud.
Every time I go back home I try to stop by Fuenterrabía, and this time around was no exception. This fishing village is one of the most beautiful in the Basque Country and the food is delicious! Besides, the village celebrated its yearly Alarde while I was there at the beginning of September.
