Trains are ALWAYS on time in Switzerland
The home of many global watch brands such as Rolax, it is no surprise that the Swiss are very particular as a culture when it comes to being on time. All trains are ALWAYS on time (London take note). Normally the conductors gets ready to close the doors about 40 seconds before departure, and as kind as the Swiss people are the train drivers don't wait for anyone- they leave on time. One can easily travel with ease within Geneva. The airport is less than 10 minutes away by train from the city centre, and around a 10 to 15 minute drive. In fact it’s so close that on a clear day you can easily see the Geneva Fountain from the place as you are landing or taking off. Geneva's superb bus and tram network is operated by Transports Publics Genevois. The public transport is clean and safe (and of course as I mentioned, Punctual!).

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
