We drove to Zurich. yes, DROVE!!! a 8 hour journey plus pit stops for us to stretch our legs and for one to change his nappy. it was very scenic all along the way, and finally, we could see hills and valleys (we dont have much of them in holland). the last time i was there was some 20 years ago, during winter where we went up in slopes and peaks all dressed up like a big bubble (i.e hidious!). this time around, the weather was perfect!

We stayed at Swissotel, just slightly outskirts of Zurich main. the facilities were excellent and the surroundings are just perfect. there are trams that you can just hop on to go to the centre, and of course, take the train, and another option is to take the bus. this is one country where you can rely 100& on their public transport!
We had dinner at the old Zurich, where the charm of each building was simply full of colours, character and class. my pictures really dont show any justice to the city, it is simply beautiful every corner you look at.
Zurich, you simply MUST go there!
(Ann: you guys are so lucky!! its beautiful there)
