Rue Industrielle 30 bis, 1820 Montreux, Switzerland
Think about it for a minute. The mouth-watering aromas of Swiss cheeses— Emmental, Neuchâtel, Gruyère. The irresistible texture of fresh bread croutons. The more-than-iconic decor. And there you have it, the perfect ingredients for a successful...
Save Place
Gruyères, Switzerland
Could there be a more glorious setting for a cheese's origin? These pastures surrounding a hilltop village (Gruyères) crowned with a castle (the Château de Gruyères), happy Swiss cows grazing with views of the Alps all around,...
Save Place
Bahnhofpl. 6, 3920 Zermatt, Switzerland
After 20 minutes on a series of gondolas, we arrived at the top of Rothorn peak and walked over to our take off point. My friend, Hera, turned to her guide and said, "Uhhh, I didn't realize I would have to run off of a cliff!" "It's more like...
Save Place
Gandria, 6978 Lugano, Switzerland
Behold Gandria! When my Airbnb host first suggested I visit Gandria I was a little unsure, mostly because of it's name. But boy was she right, this little village navigable exclusively by foot was so picturesque and quiet. Situated on a hill just...
Save Place
Via Enrico Caronti, 69, 22020 Blevio CO, Italy
I sip a glass of prosecco on my rooftop terrace with a book by my side, but nothing can divert my attention from the sunset view of Lake Como and the mountains beyond. Opera music drifts from my neighbor’s suite, which is fitting, given the...
Save Place
Mount Pilatus, 6010 Alpnach, Switzerland
The view from our gondola ride up to the top of the beautiful Mt Pilatus. Obviously, it was freezing and although the sun seems to be almost completely hidden by fog here, once up the mountain is was blindingly bright!

Save Place
Bern, Switzerland

In the canton Argovia, there is this cute little town called Frick, which has everything you need: to be in suburbs, greenery, shopping facilities... and this fabulous Cafe and Bakery - one of our favorites. The bakery delivers delicious cakes and...

Save Place

Ascona, on the shores of Lake Maggiore, with its swaying palm trees and mild climate is Switerland's lowest lying town (at 196 meters above sea level). Joe and I strolled the lakeside promenade (Lungolago) which has a very South of France feel...

Save Place
Dubai Marina - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
When in Arabic countries, eat like the Arabs do! This goes esp. for breakfast and coffee for me. I love to try local food and thus given the choice of the complementary breakfast at our hotel, we chose the Lebanese variety and did not regret it!...
