The island of Burano located about an hour boat ride from Venice is known for their colored houses and lace. The houses were painted different colors so when the sailors came home after a few drinks they could find their house. I was especially drawn to the beautiful blue doorways on this island.

You never know what you are going to find on the streets of Europe. I always try to stay off the main path because its where where you find the classic scenes of European life. I happened to come across this street in Geneva Switzerland that had all different types of doorways and shutters. In front of each of the houses were different bikes. They are all so unique and filled with character. Here are two from the same street.
If you look in the window you can see the lace drawn curtain and the iron detail.
Well I promised to tell you the ups and downs of living in Switzerland and well here is the first hiccup. I am staying at my friends house and I decided to do laundry. Well the machine broke… since there is no dryer my clothes are soaking wet drying in my room. Lets hope tomorrow turns out a little better!
A quick train ride away from Luassane is Geneva. A friend from high school is living here so we met for lunch. After lunch I set off to discover the back streets of Geneva. I loved this quaint street with bikes parked outside of each door. Although it wasn’t the door or the bike that caught my attention, its the green shutters.
