When asked “why Switzerland” on our recent trip to that picturesque country, in a nutshell for me it would have to be nature. Switzerland is a mountainous country, home to numerous lakes, alpine villages, and the high peaks of the Alps. In addition, it is the land of watches, chocolates, Guyere cheese, scenic views and so much more. Reading and prepping for the journey was the hardest part. I am the planner, the booker and the executor of our travel. I wanted to see it all, being such a small country, but we settled on Montreux, Lucerne and Bern. I did enjoy researching it all though as it gave me an opportunity to learn a bit more about the country and its people.
