Lifestyle: 30 Hours in Zurich, Switzerland

A few weekends ago I was lucky enough to spend a short time over in Zurich…though admittedly not for leisure! Switzerland just happens to be one of my most favourite places ever since I first visited four years ago, so it was nice to have the opportunity to see a bit more of the city.

There was plenty more I would have wanted to squeeze into the two free hours I had to spare, but the cold temperatures and hot chocolate cravings meant I actually saw very little.

    I went to Switzerland many years ago with my Rangers and Guides group. I loved the place and would happily go back to see much, much more of it. We were staying near the international Girlguide centre, towards the southwest of the country, but I would love to explore Zurich. I also have a lot of love for the very efficient train system!

    It’s a shame you didn’t have much free time there but you got the chocolate which is the most important thing 😉 x

  • Switzerland is at the top of my bucket list! I always bring so many food items back from wherever I travel to. It’s always a struggle when it’s all gone though, ha!
