Zurich

Zurich was like that girl in class I never knew I would be good friends with- I had always thought her interesting enough from afar but didn’t just how well we would get along, and how much I would really end up liking her.

Last summer I was lucky enough to get to know the city a little better by wandering the charming, colourful streets (oh hello Cabaret Voltaire), enjoying the fresh air, flowers, and the architecture, not to mention all those tasty treats from Sprüngli and Péclard.

As if that weren’t wonderful enough, I also got acquainted with Lausanne, Lucerne, and Geneva and some adorable Swiss towns- Thun, and Gruyeres. Much cheese was had. castles were visited, glaciers were hiked, and mountains were climbed (well, not exactly- it was a cog railway that took us to the top to enjoy views of the Matterhorn’s majestic peak).

Last but definitely not least there was Lauterbrunnen, which will always have a special place in my heart- the place where I literally took a giant leap and embarked on the biggest adventure of my life.
