Lausanne is one place in Switzerland that I can’t recommend enough to visit. I feel like it is some sort of a hidden gem. Not so many international tourists visit Lausanne, compared to other places in Switzerland and not many people even heard about this city. To be honest, I also didn’t know much about Lausanne before my first trip to Switzerland and didn’t see a reason to travel there. But as for now, I’ve been to this city a couple of times and can’t wait to go there again. This is why recommend everyone to include Lausanne when planning a trip itinerary for Switzerland.
Lately, I’ve been thinking about writing a travel bucket list. There are so many places in the world I want to see that sometimes it is hard to keep them all in mind. Whenever I nee to plan the next trip, I spend a lot of time thinking where to go instead of just picking one destination from the list. It will also be fun to look at the bucket list a few years later and see how much has happened already.
I wanted to write a list of countries to visit first but it didn’t work well. Some countries are more exciting than other and there are lots of things I want to do there. That’s why I decided to create a list for every country I want to visit. The first post is going to be about France for a special reason. At the moment I live right on the French-German border. I only need to cross the bridge to go to France and I can see the other side from the window of my apartment. However, the only part of France I have been to remains Alsace. And here is what is on wish-list.
My best friend from Ukraine came to visit me in Germany recently. As we were discussing what to do during her stay, I suggested going to Colmar. This French town is located just a 40 minutes bus ride from my current home and it is so pretty that I went there a few times already. To my surprise, my friend never heard of Colmar before! Sometimes I see Colmar on the lists of hidden gems on the Internet but you just need to go there once during Christmas to understand that this is no more an off-the-beaten-path destination. I will write a blog post with the tips to visit Colmar soon but here are some photos to inspire your wanderlust if you don’t dream of visiting Colmar yet. 😉
Zurich is the largest Swiss city with the busiest train station and the main airport in Switzerland. Zurich is a starting point of Switzerland travel itinerary for most international visitors. Thanks to the central location, you can easily do day trips from Zurich to almost everywhere in Switzerland. Moreover, you can even go to Germany, France or Liechtenstein from Zurich. Here are my favorite ideas for a day trip from Zurich.
