I just spent a week in beautiful Switzerland with hubby, where the Alpine weather showed us all its forms. There was snow, there was sleet… it rained, and then it was bright again with warm sunshine.
You could see people in full winter gear with fur-decorated coats, and then you’d see other people stripped down to t-shirts – this would happen on the same street within 10 minutes apart. We only traveled with hand luggage, restricting us to what we had brought, so sometimes I was freezing and sometimes a bit too warm in my woollen spring coat. Is it summer, is it winter? Who knows.
Meanwhile, the sun finally found Helsinki, Finland, and we returned home to calm, blue skies. Though I spent most of today inside an office building, I still appreciate the shift towards sunnier weather. Hope it lasts!
This was my first time in Switzerland and my first impression was that it’s such an easy place to travel in. Everything went so smoothly, trains were on time; I felt safe and quite at home from the start. I don’t speak German but I do speak French – I liked the blending of the two languages. It felt like I was in the heart of Europe.
I’ll do some Switzerland-themed photo posts a bit later on, among my usual stories of past trips. And I have some catching up to do with all the great blogs I follow! Hope you’ve had a fun week!
