Anyway our first stop was the Swiss city Zurich. One of my co-travellers had friends living near Zurich and they were kind enough to harbour us for one night (they even paid all of our meals and bought a box of macarons for us!). They lived in a city called Richterswil and had a house in the hills with an amazing view all over a large lake. We also made a day trip to Rapperswil which is such a charming place as you will see on the one picture. Find travel tips at the end of the post.
My tips for your trip to Zurich:
- Couch surfing would be a great option when going to Switzerland as the people are really hospitable.
- A day trip to Rapperswil is a must. You will get there by boat and be able to see the houses of the Swiss high society!
- In Switzerland you don't go to Ladurée but you get your macarons (which are called Luxemburgerli) at Sprüngli. They say they are called Luxemburgerli because it was a Luxembourgish chef who brought the recipe to Switzerland (yay, I'm proud of my home country!).
So that was the first post about my Interrail trip. More to come on Thursdays! And now tell me, have you been to Switzerland so far?
