All About Geneva (the Genevist) is a non-profit site featuring resources, some local news, stories and musings from Geneva, Switzerland.
We help our readers discover one of the most expensive cities in the world “on a budget”. Occasionally, contributors highlight personal travel and —being based in Geneva— humanitarian affairs.
From 2009 to 2013, the blog was carried as New to Geneva? Me Too! and later as Geneva Living by the first English-language regional news website but now defunct GenevaLunch.com. From 2014 to 2020 it used the All About Geneva domain, but a ruthless enterpriser took the domain from under our feet while the website’s owner battled Covid-19.

AAG (the Genevist) is mostly written by Laila Rodriguez-Bloch, a Colombian-American award-winning multimedia freelance journalist, and communications/media-relations consultant once described as “hintologist”.
Laila’s Spanish-language work can be found on NoticiasdeGinebra.com, the only news and resources website in Spanish in the area, which she founded in 2010. Her work has been featured several times in the local Swiss media.
Jared Bloch is a communications and media-relations consultant in the areas of refugee resettlement, labour safety, development, and disarmament.
An avid outdoorsman, Jared occasionally writes about marathon hikes, cycling, elegant but simple “engines” —including older Japanese motorcycles and Volvos— and offbeat brews.
Bryan Schaub, a Geneva-born Swiss, has been an occasional photo contributor since he was in his teens.
Bryan is one of the most popular instagramers in Geneva with more than 120,000 followers -at time of publishing. His hashtag — #CripixtMovement — has been used over 60,000 times since he created it in October 2014.
Bryan’s photo featured on this page captures a peaceful moment at the Geneva train station.
