La Saga des Géants – Royal de Luxe

And now for something completely different, because this blog is all about experiences that are unforgettable. And boy, those Giants sure left their mark on Geneva this weekend. It was fortunate that two out of the three days of their visit, the weather was really nice. So people came out in droves to look at those enormous, yet endearing creatures. My personal favorite was the Grand-Ma Giant, who didn’t shy away of just taking a squat in the middle of the road and let it all flow. To the delight of all the children standing around me.

But what am I talking about? Here are some pictures and movies!

Hats off to Royal de Luxe which created such a marvelous and mythical spectacle.

Ardshiel Restaurant: “Lovely classic food”

Had a great dinner at Ardshiel Hotel. The food was rather classic, but clearly prepared with a lot of care. The turbot I ordered was perfectly cooked and I loved the fact that the vegetables were served separately so everybody on the table could pick what they liked. The crumble I had as dessert was really just the perfect way to end the meal. Very good!

The ambiance in the dining area is very nice. I loved the fact that the ceiling is decorated with whisky bottles, illuminated by blue lights. Gave a modern feel to the classic interior. It was a bit chilly where we originally sat, because the door to the kitchen area swung open lots of times. But not to worry, we just moved to another table, which was no problem at all for the staff, who were very friendly and accommodating.

The bar also offers an excellent whisky selection, which we were very happy to try. A really great evening!
