If you haven't guessed already with all the clues in the previous posts, we are taking you to The Land of The Swiss! So are we ready? The first post is five things I absolutely loved about Zurich or I guess Switzerland in general.
1. The Travel System
By this I mean the most amazing Swiss Rail and all the other ways people here get from one place to another. So far I've seen Skateboarding, cycling, roller blading and even a few scooties! So that was real good news for a fitness freak like me!
This also really promotes tourism because our family just bought a Swiss Travel Pass for 8 days in the beginning of the trip and had free train rides, tram rides, bus rides and boat rides. This way you don't have to worry about paying for a taxi every time you want to step out of the hotel.
2. The old architecture and flower balconies
As you reach Old Zurich you see mesmerizingly beautiful old architecture and pretty pink flowers decorating their royal balconies that stole my heart. And with a cup of coffee on the street it actually feels like heaven on earth. I clicked so many pictures of all the lanes, cafes and houses in old Zurich but this ones my favourite:
3. The Alps.
The Alps, oh the Alps. They are undoubtedly the most breathtakingly beautiful mountain ranges on the planet. Not all of them were snow covered because it's summer but they were all awe-worthy. Especially when the view has the giant mountains and the mini lakes covering Switzerland. Again, the number of pictures I took filled up my phone but my favourite one is this.
4. Fruit Vendors
I doubt I'll ever forget the taste of the cherries I had here. They're round, Crimson red and they have a perfect taste, not too sweet not too sour.
The apricots, sounds pretty cliché but I cannot describe the apricots with words. N'est pas possible! Which brings us to our next point.
5. French and German-ness
Switzerland doesn't have its own language, but all menus in Zurich, Lucerne and Interlaken are in German. As you go down south, around Geneva you'll observe a more French dominated environment. Even with all these cultures, the Swiss have their own magic, they have good pretzels like the Germans and they have good crepes like the French but they have an identity of their own as well, which is what I find commendable.
So thank you Switzerland, for the memorable experience! I hope you guys enjoyed reading an article about my travel experience. Leave a comment below if you want to see more such articles, it'll make our day!
