The power travel to restore worn-out thoughts and minds has always been something I believe in – just being in a different place sometimes can allow for an attitude adjustment or a new point of view.
And those adventures sustain me – not just in writing terms, but in my mental health – something I do put to one side now and again, thanks to things that happen beyond this blog.
Making the time for a break of some sort is something we need to do – not as travellers, but as humans to allow us to gain a new perspective, or to have that time to think.
Something we all need to do, now and again.
Onto the wrap-up
easyJet were about what I had them down for. Like any low-cost carrier, remember to pay for the experience you want, rather than expect the world for a discount fare. easyJet was more than passable in my experience, and it’s good to see the Air-Fi product being further rolled out across the fleet.
The Crowne Plaza Geneva was more than a comfortable place as a crashpad (and more like a property hotel). Just be careful about breakfast (either on the included rate or as a paid option) – like most costs in Switzerland, it can bankrupt you.
Finally Geneva itself?
It is a city I could imagine spending another city break in, if the price was right, or if I got bored and just wanted out for the weekend. Although I’d like at least a whole Saturday in it, as a mid-afternoon arrival can cut into your exploring time without realising it.
Next: There’s a fair bit happening in the world of Kevin – but not a lot of it I can share for a travel blog (unless you count two weeks serving jury service as a travel experience – I don’t sadly).
I’ve got some travel technology reviews lined up over the next few weeks too, so keep an eye out when I get the chance to finish them up and hit publish.
There might be something in February, but my eyes are already turning to the end of March when I’m back in the Windy City to see friends again. And that trip is shaping up nicely, with some long-haul premium economy seats making an appearance.
Other things, like trips in June, have also entered the planning process.
This could be the year that travel goes back into high gear here.
Until then, please stick around on Economy Class and Beyond. There’s a lot more from the keyboard in the year ahead.
