I made it a point to read (audiobook) and finish Mary Shelly’s Frankenstein book before and during my visit to Geneva, as this is where she had her inspiration to write the book. Regardless of any pictures you may have seen on TV or at...More

A good statue - one for the kids or in my case my other half! In a random spot but a lovely walk to find it
