I visited Milan – the city of fashion in Italy twice. Once during Christmas as a part of our Italy tour and once for a couple of hours (Milan was our stopover) while visiting Nice in France. We experienced a rainy day during our first visit and a sunny day during the second visit. Galleria Vittorio Emanuele, located next to the famous Milan Cathedral, was glistening and glittering bright on both the days.
Visiting a new city is always thrilling since we know we will find out busy roads, lots of traffic, people and big buildings, yet we always end up finding something new, something special which gives uniqueness to a particular city.

One of my biggest weaknesses is travelling. It enriches me. On one hand, the wonderful nature in Norway, Switzerland , France and Denmark etc instills me with peace, inspiring places like Nobel Museum in Stockholm , CERN Switzerland , The Neils Bohr Institute in Copenhagen and The Freud Museum in Vienna etc inspires me and on the other hand some places take away words from my pen, takes away thoughts from my mind and senses from within.
From the moment I heard that the Nobel Prize for Physics in 2013 has been awarded to Francois Englert and Peter W. Higgs for the theoretical discovery of a mechanism that contributes to our understanding of the origin of mass of subatomic particles, and which recently was confirmed through the discovery of the predicted fundamental particle, by the ATLAS and CMS experiments at CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC). I thought of sharing my experience of visiting CERN in Geneva, Switzerland with my readers.
Welcome to the small romantic French town of Evian on the shores of Lake Geneva. Away from the hustle and bustle of a city, crowd and daily routine, the juxtaposition of a small town alongside the blue lake and the beautiful snow covered white alps is truly an oasis for lovers.
