Straight on to Zurich. My excitement mounts with each passing kilometer. Border crossings are easy now, one minute you are in one country, the next we are in a new one without even slowing down.
Zurich. It's my second time here with Jeff but last time we had to cut the trip short so we wanted a bit more time to enjoy this bustling but beautiful center of finance.
Lake Zurich runs through the city providing water views with every step. Swans populate the lake like water clouds passing their days floating gracefully amid all the noise and endless streams of people making their way to meetings, meals and who knows what else—the people, not the swans.
Old world buildings as well as new ones line the lake on either side with a multitude of places to shop, do business, and of course eat and drink.
I love the European style of setting up tables and chairs facing outward so while eating and drinking you can people watch. My lunch at a charming café was a delicious ‘salat nicoise' and light crisp Swiss white wine.
After our leisurely lunch, we were ready to stroll away the afternoon peeking into shops, churches, and hotels along our way--just being part of the scene.
