In celebration of my upcoming birthday, the Man has been extremely sweet to plan a series of weekend trips as part of the birthday package.
Last weekend, we were up in Le Mirador Kempinski Lake Geneva for a relaxing stay. Too bad it rained out. But, perhaps it was not a bad thing for we got to make full use of our stay in the room overlooking a magnificent view of the famed Lake Geneva.
Dressing up for dinner with my little black dress with lace plus my new fashion accessory from the Imp. It worked really well giving my simple black dress a different kind of funky vibe. And we made our way down to Vevey for dinner.
There are five primary cities around the lake that offers a breath-taking view of the lake namely Geneva, Lausanne, Nyon, Vevey, and Villeneuve. As we explored the lake, I saw a giant fork from afar and excitedly told the Man that we should head there to grab some shots of the giant fork.
Turned out that on top of the famous statue of Charlie Chaplin, the fork is also an emblem for the town of Vevey. Made of stainless steel, it is 8m high and 1.3m wide. It was designed by Jean-Pierre Zaugg, a sculptor from Neuchâtel, Switzerland and embedded in the lake in February 1995 to commemorate the Alimentarium’s tenth anniversary. It was initially intended to grace the lake-shore in front of the Museum for one year but it has remained as part of the Lake Geneva landscape ever-since.
