We were laid over in Zurich last week on our way to Barcelona.
We weren't given enough time to truly explore the city, but we were able to take a quick peek. We covered the most important necessity, however:
Stock up on as much Swiss Chocolate as humanly possible!
And what's a stop in Switzerland if you don't check out SWATCH?
Switzerland is beautiful. It's always seemed special to me, but the opportunity to visit has never really presented itself. I would love to spend more than just a few hours there, and visit several different cities while I'm at it...but the truth is, Switzerland is dang expensive. More expensive than France, and that's saying something. The cost of food and lodging is really what's been preventing us from planning a trip there, which is why a layover seemed like the perfect time to at least be introduced to it. If we had the time and money I'd love to visit Basel, Bern, Lugano...as well as trek around in the alps a bit and check out the UNREAL blue waters of the lakes there. A few hours layed over in Zurich obviously didn't allow us such luxuries, but I can't complain. Until next time, Switzerland!
Have you been to Switzerland? Whereabouts? What were the highlights? Lowlights?
