…which means, I’m currently curled up on my couch, with TripAdvisor, Lonely Planet and some weird random travel blogs open, trying to figure out what makes some Swiss cities better to visit than others. Because we only have so many days there. Decisions, decisions. Anyone have suggestions?
Majestic. That’s the only word that seems to capture the views we saw in Zermatt and while hiking near the Matterhorn today.
Once I upload the photos from my camera, I’ll have many more pictures to share, most notably, the ones from our hike in the mountains.
For now, here’s a photo I snapped from my train window as we left Zermatt.
Visiting Bern yesterday was like visiting an old friend in a new place - familiar, with the occasional surprise. It also reminded me a lot of Prague with all of its old city charm.
We walked the streets, hiked up to the rose garden for sweeping views of the city, toured the bear pits (yes, real bears) and finished up the day at a microbrewery. It was as relaxing as a day trip gets.
As IT World explained about Sleepbox, “Sheets are changed robotically. Each pod provides personal work space, with a table for your laptop and electrical outlets. It also includes sound alerts, a ventilation system, TV, Wi-Fi, luggage space.” The hostel version, such as the model unveiled in Moscow, adds a bunk bed and fold-up desk. These cousins to the micro-hotel are meant to be coin-operated, and should rent by the hour or in 30-minute cycles.
…nothing about this sounds appealing to me.
