all aboard, the lake steamer is departing! an excursion on #lakegeneva is worthwhile all year round, even in winter – or especially at this time, as the promenade in #montreux is quieter and you have a clear view of the snow-covered vineyards of #lavaux from the water. either way, you should definitely journey out onto lac léman, as it’s called in french, at least once in your life. “lem an” was the name given to the lake by the celts and means “large water”. covering 582 square kilometres, the lake is traversed by liners, small ferries and historical paddle steamers like the one in this photo from @__ernesto_ca__.
