Travel: Zurich, Switzerland

If you travel around or have a chance to live in Switzerland, you might find it to be absolutely beautiful and breathtaking but quite boring at the same time. I think of it to be a great place to grow up in and perhaps be here when you are 65+. At least I thought so.

I have visited Zurich about 10 years ago on a school trip and can’t remember much about it, although I should have. After recently visiting Zurich for just 2 days, it turned me upside down and made me question my father why he didn’t choose Zurich while thinking of sending me to study abroad. Zurich is like an oasis in a middle of the dessert, or a brand new Ferrari among old cars. Very modern with lots of things to do – museums, zoos, opera, its own mountain. The only downside – it’s the most expensive city in Europe. But after living in Swiss for 11 years, hardly any price can shock me now.

Here I am, just about to take you on a trip around Zurich, “walk” up the Uetliberg mountain, visit an art gallery and a museum – Kunsthaus and Rietberg and “listen” to Dalai Lama’s teachings. Shall we start?

  1. Yeah, we also spent very little time when getting around in Switzerland while for business Mel drives to the middle or western end…so it was good to see what the city looks like.
