Postcard from Switzerland

In Switzerland, not just the quality of life is very high, is also the quality of the people.

Was a 3 hours train ride away from Stuttgart. And I went alone in this trip, so I could observe a few more things.

At first, I was impressed how many strangers started talking to me in the train, waiting in line at the supermarket or seeing me on my own in the cafes, always smiling and kindly switching from Swiss German to Standard German once they saw my confused look.

I love that they here say ‘Grüezi’, ‘Merci vilmal’ and ‘Adieu’ and that quality chocolate is a way of life, just like it is in Belgium.

Zürich

Was my first stop, but a very short one. It truly a cosmopolitan city, very international and cold. In 5 minutes, I was hearing English being spoken, alongside French, Italian and of course, German.

Luzern

The second stop was my favorite. Luzern is smaller, softer. The mountains and nearby and the lake was full with swimmers.

Switzerland, what a gem!
