Somehow the stars aligned, and Mr. M & I managed a few free days around the 4th of July holiday. After an evening spent scouring kayak.com and considering destination after destination (at some point that night we were sure we’d be going to Amsterdam… then Portugal… then Iceland… which- hence the links- we’ve managed to get to since), our compass point stuck. We were able to find decently priced last-minute flights to Switzerland!
I am ridiculously excited. I’m picturing scenic train rides through the Swiss Alps, hikes along mountaintop meadows filled with edelweiss (a la Sound of Music… yes, I do know that was Austria, but let a girl dream), and lots and lots of cheesy fondue. Bring it.
Here’s my basic itinerary:
Day 1: Zurich
Day 2: Lucerne
Day 3: Zermatt and the Matterhorn
Days 4-5: The Bernese Oberland & visiting Jungfraujoch, the highest rail station in the world
Day 6: The Medieval City of Bern
While we’re in Switzerland (beginning around the 4th of July), I’ll do my best to stay current with daily posts… assuming local internet can keep up with me!
So what do y’all think? Has anyone been to Switzerland? Is there anything we absolutely must see/ do/ eat/ experience?
