I really didn’t know much about Switzerland expect that it can get cold and something about Swiss banks and cheese. And chocolate.
Anyhow, Zurich introduced itself as a beautiful city with both old European charm and modern flair. I paid a visit during the summer, so that whole cold thing wasn’t a bother.
The weather was so accommodating, so when we landed we immediately set out into the city via the train.
This quaint little city is made up of alleyways filled with boutiques, cafes and other interesting sights to see.
We decided one of the best ways to experience the city in a short amount of time was a ferry ride on the Limmat River, which runs right through Zurich.
As we waited to board our ferry, we occupied ourselves by watching the collection of foul at the docks, as well as the surrounding artwork.
While on the ferry, we decided it was probably best to enjoy the tour with a taste of the local brew…
After disembarking, we stopped off at a cafe for a meal and drinks while exploring what bit of the city we saw on our way back to the station.
The next morning, myself and a few others got up early, borrowed bicycles from the hotel and went for a fresh air bike ride in the small woods and farms just behind the hotel.
At the end of our bike ride, it was about time to fly back to Dubai. Zurich was a lovely little breath of fresh air from our usual daily Dubai lives.
