Zermatt, Interlaken and Zurich: 10 Pictures

While I’m starting to get really comfortable reviewing flights and hotels, when I get to cities, I get out of words. That’s not because all cities I’ve visited have been underwhelming, but rather because I don’t know what value I can add to the blogosphere, with so many blogs based on travel, including review sites such as TripAdvisor. While I’m fine with judging a single flight, judging an entire city that people live in is harder. I used to write city reports (some of my more successful ones include Kaohsiung and Shanghai), and suffice to say that they took days to write, given that I had to compress everything I thought about the city.

But while I’ve stopped that completely, I haven’t stopped taking pictures, which almost always adds value to the blogosphere. So I’m just going to be sharing 10 pictures from each city I visited, without any notes or anything. I’m really not an actual destination expert, so I’ll leave it there.

Before I given my ten pictures, a huge prop to our guide Beat of Bucher Travel Services for getting everything ready, from lunch, to hiking tours, to helping the kids.

Bottom Line

Suffice to say that I came back with a new sense of what Switzerland was like. I probably won’t be back in the near future given how expensive everything is, but it was just so beautiful.

I can’t wait to get back in Europe in February.
