On Saturday we decided to venture out of Switzerland into France for a little fun!
After only a 30 minute bus ride we crossed the border into the quaint french town of Ferney-Voltaire. We spent the next several hours exploring the world famous farmer’s market and eating tons of free samples.
I struggled to remember my Middle School level french, but managed to kind of communicate with the vendors. After a few failed attempts to ask questions in broken french, most of the vendors spoke English to me, but at least I tried!
With only 3 euros to my name, I set out to accomplish the classic french market lunch- bread and cheese!
Being the bargain hunter that I am, I somehow managed to barter with one of the vendors (in French!) and got brie cheese and a fresh baguette for only 2.70 euros!
Pro Tip: All prices are always negotiable, even in France, so be confident and try your hand at some good old-fashioned bartering, who knows, you might save some money!
After a successful french lunch, we headed back to Geneva to explore the city for one last time before we sent off for Italy the next morning!
