Well, honestly I’ve been back for two weeks now. I was just too lazy to put together a post;;
If you’re reading this out of the blue, you probably don’t know that I went on a trip to Switzerland, Germany, Czech Republic, and Austria. Of course, it was all crammed in two weeks, but it was still such an awesome experience. I’m still thinking back on it and dreaming of my next visit.
The first day started off kind of hectic in Switzerland, because we couldn’t get SIM cards or the car we wanted for rental. We ended up stuck in the airport for 4 extra hours.
In the end everything went well with the rental. Not with the SIM cards though. Word of advice: make sure your phone is unlocked by your provider.
Day 1: casual sightseeing
The clean streets of Zurich.
The beautiful and grand hauptbahnhof.
A little snack I picked up.
I actually brought avocados on board with me from Pittsburgh. To be fair, I had three in the fridge and I couldn’t just leave them for two weeks only to come back to see sad looking avocados. Thus, they traveled 6000 km and made my meals much better.
Day 2: Interlaken and the Alps
I’m sure Interlaken is one the must-go’s when visiting Switzerland. Even if we weren’t planning on riding the iconic red train up the Alps, we wanted to see the famous picturesque view.
I was seriously blown away by the view. The Swiss Alps certainly exceeded my expectations. Hiking this beauty is added to my bucket-list.
Our favorite ALDI in its home in Europe.
Strawberry near the Alps makes it 100 times better.
Also picked up chocolate soy milk, dark chocolate and vegetable spread at a Swiss chain called Migros. There were so many vegan goodies available that I was sad to not be able to explore the grocery aisles more.
Next up is our trip to Strasbourg, France and Heidelberg, Germany! See you in part 2!
