A and I went to a museum on our second date, and museums have played an important role in our dating life since then. We've been to quite a few over the last year, in London, Paris, York, and Geneva, and we like to set days apart every now and then to explore others. A few Sundays ago, we decided to spend the day in Lausanne so A could show me some of his childhood favorites. We went to the Palais de Rumine, which houses quite a few small museums, and then made our way down to Ouchy after lunch to go to the Musée Olympique (and to have amazing gelato). Here are a few of our photos...
Walking through Lausanne on our way back from the Shakespeare Festival the other night, I spotted bagels out of the corner of my eye, squealed, and then turned on the spot to see the newly opened Bagel on the Way. Since it was about 10 p.m., the shop was obviously closed, but A quickly found its Instagram feed and as its photos looked quite promising with shiny, fat bagels, I was excited to try it.
I took the train to Lausanne on Wednesday with that exact purpose in mind. I met A by the station and we went to Bagel on the Way to get a picnic dinner before making our way down to Ouchy to eat by the lake.
