After Munich I split up from the group. They were headed back to Barcelona and then to the USA. I wanted to make a few more stops before heading back to the US. Everything is just so close in Europe and I felt like it would be a waste if I didn’t take advantage of that. Plus Tom really wanted to save Spain for a trip together. I decided to take a tour of Switzerland since it was only a short plane ride from Munich. I stayed in Zurich at a hotel called The Adler, which I highly recommend. It was very cozy in the center of the city. There were shops and restaurants all around it, and it was only a 10 minute walk from the main train station. My room was really small but it was very cozy and I slept well. The first day there I toured Zurich and did some shopping. I didn’t bring enough sweaters with me to Europe so I ended up buying a light jacket. Our trip was wonderful but 85% of the time it was overcast and/or raining. Zurich was so cute. It reminded me of Amsterdam a little bit. The next day I did a tour traveling from Zurich, Lucerne, Bern, and Geneva. It was a long day, but it was nice being able to relax on the bus. If I ever went back I would love to go see more of Bern and Geneva. Zurich and Lucerne were very similar. I would visit Lucerne for a day of shopping if that’s what I was interested in. Bern is a smaller town with a lot of charm, our tour didn’t get to spend too much time there. Over-all Switzerland was very scenic and EXPENSIVE! The shopping is fantastic, but everything costs more so I don’t think I would go here to shop. I did of course by my Swiss Army Knife there, how could you not!?

  1. If you ever come back to Switzerland, spend time in Bern, it is definitely better than Geneva 🙂
