Reply Corinne McKay July 9, 2012 I have to admit, it did make me laugh! All the havoc one can make as a tourist (and the Roc de Veyges is a beautiful spot overlooking the Lake Geneva valley!) Reply Carolyn Yohn July 9, 2012 Ah, Switzerland! Sometimes I think this is what adds to the charm 🙂 Love it! Reply Corinne McKay July 9, 2012 Thanks Carolyn!
