We’re one year old!

On 4th July 2012, the American International Women’s Club launched Living in Geneva: Accounts by International Women with our first post, Hello World! Today, we are excited to be celebrating our first year of blogging.

Over the past year, we’ve covered an extensive range of topics, including French classes in Geneva, local grocery stores, how to ride the TPG, Mont Salève, children’s resources, museums, dog parks, wine bars, jewelry workshops, Geneva’s beaches, local landmarks, Christmas markets, Caves Ouvertes, the Geneva marathon, the Swiss pharmacy, local libraries, sunflowers in the area, emergency services, Swiss cheese, and many others.

Thank you to the more than 39,000 visitors from 144 countries around the world who stopped by our blog. In our second year, we look forward to bringing you more posts related to activities, excursions, resources, and information about making the most of living in Geneva!
