Environs of Geneva

One just knows that France is in close proximity when the neighbourhood houses this kind of sign:

And actually, we are within biking distance from France.
Here we have biked for about 10 minutes from our temporary accommodation, which might be located on the outskirts of Geneva, but it is actually a French road on the other side of the fence.
(And yes, there are more approachable border crossings at the end of other roads..)

We are not far from Italy either - this traffic sign indicates the distance to Turin as well as Milan:

And we are not gonna make a secret of the fact that we have looked forward to this proximity to both France and Italy, since it appeals to some fabulous weekend get-aways.
