Throwback Travel Thursday: Zurich


Yaay, a new series of posts, I'm so excited, are you, too? (Wow 4 commas in one sentence, that can't be grammatically correct, haha!) Okay, back to what it's about! Of course I already travelled before I had this blog but you never got to see the pics, because I didn't have the blog (obviously...). That's why I thought that it would be nice to share some of my old pics with you and which day would be better to do so than on famous Throwback Thursday (gotta love a good alliteration!). I will start off the series with a few posts about my mini Europe trip I did after my final exams. And I say mini because it was only about 3 countries: Switzerland, Italy and Germany. We travelled by train with a backpack which was pretty cool. If you ever plan on doing such a trip in Europe by train I can only recommend the Interrail ticket we used. (Learn more about it here.)
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?

  2. I would love to visit Zurich! I was supposed to go several years ago and had everything booked (hotel and flight) but then the Icelandic volcano happened and flights were cancelled... Still on my list though, especially after seeing these beautiful photos.

  20. I can't wait to go to Europe one day and see all of these beautiful sights I see on other blogs. I would love to backpack and take the train everywhere one day when my son gets older. It sounds like so much fun. I would definitely need to learn a more universal language though! <3
