After leaving Paris on our very early train ride we arrived in Zürich, Switzerland to some dreary rainy weather. We only had one full day in the city though so we weren’t going to let some rain slow us down.
As we left the train station in search of our hotel room we were greeted by the circus. We of course had to walk around this area a bit, I am sure we looked like quite the pair walking around with our huge backpacks on.
After dropping our bags off in our orange room and a quick power nap we headed out to explore. The rain hadn’t slowed down at all though so I will say this was not the most fun day of travel. And of course I hadn’t really packed clothes to keep me warm on stormy days since most of our trip was in warmer climates. I solved the issue by wearing all my clothes at once which was super stylish. #travelerproblems
We made the most of the day though and I loved exploring the adorable streets of Zürich. H was of course in charge of the map.
One thing we quickly learned on our first day was that food in Zürich is expensive, I mean really expensive. The only real meal we purchased during our two days there was some pad thai, which was the cheapest we found at $25 dollars a plate!
Zürich is not the biggest city to walk around so by noon we were a bit over it and ready to move on to the next stop. We were sure though to use our time wisely by indulging in some of the best chocolate and pretzels that I have ever had.
I am still dreaming about that pretzel! We made sure to buy some chocolate to go, although most of it was gone by the time our train even arrived. Our train stop was easily found by this large flying woman.
The train ride was my favorite part of our time in Switzerland. Even though I had a “me scuzi” situation, euro trip anyone? It was tough to not bust up laughing every time H and I made eye contact. It was a long train ride sitting very close to someone I did not know.
After leaving the gorgeous Swiss Alps we arrived to our next destination, Milan! Tune in next week to hear how I got kicked out of my first Italian church.
