A Brief History of Here To Geneva

The Beginning

Here To Geneva was born in April 2007 as our editor, Matt Morelli, prepared to visit Switzerland for the first time. It was his intention to fly into Geneva, tour the country by train and document his experiences with an aim of publishing them online. After a few days of thought, the name ‘Here To Geneva’ came to him and he quickly snapped up the web address and set everything up.

A few days after that, Matt changed his mind and decided to fly into Basel instead, over 250km away. It was too late to change the name of the site, so he was stuck with it.

The Middle

Since 2007, Here To Geneva is where Matt has documented all of his travels. He has focused on short, snappy and shareable travel content with a focus on food, tourist attractions, adventurous pursuits, beautiful vistas, nature and city life. His focus has been on creating content people love, taking awesome photos that people want to share with their friends and providing snapshots of what it’s like being in the places that he’s visited.

The Present & Future

In 2015, Matt launched a major expansion of Here To Geneva and welcomed content by other contributers. He now aims to create a brand new impartial and independent travel brand that people love and respect.
