hey everyone, this is my first post!
I'll be living in Paris until December, taking lots of classes and working hard. This is not the first time I've lived here, so this time I'd like to get out of the city a bit more on the weekends. Does anyone have any ideas for cheap places that are easy to get to from here? Specifically, I'll need to go to Switzerland at some point to break up a tourist visa. Anything exciting happening in Switzerland in early November or late October? Also, a friend of mine who's never been to Europe before will be visiting me in the middle of October. As he has pretty thin blood (from Florida...) I was hoping to find some place warmer than Paris where we can go to get away from my unheated apartment. Does anyone here live in Paris? Where do you go for a weekend trip?
