Just a quick heads up, this post contains a video and a few pictures.
If you look above this post, you’ll find a video of what I remembered to record while in Switzerland, between feeling awkward speaking to a camera, forgetting to charge it constantly, and the weather raining on my parade, this is all I managed to get. Video should be up top ^^
Below you’ll find pictures of the places I visited while there as well. This is just so you can have a visual of what Switzerland is like. Along the way I’ll be posting an itinerary, an approximate budget, things I noticed while in Switzerland, and my overall opinion of the country. At least from what I had the pleasure of experiencing.
Either way, I hope you enjoy it, and if you’re thinking of going to Switzerland, I hope this seals the deal.
Keep in mind, pictures and videos will never do any country justice.
Lucerne | Luzern
Old Town Lucerne/Luzern: Murals and wall paintings everywhere.
The Chapel Bridge: Said to be the oldest wood bridge in Europe.
There are Switzerland flags everywhere!
The Lion Monument: Commemorates Swiss Guards that were massacred in 1792 during the French Revolution.
I went on a Sunday, places were closed and streets were mostly empty. This is normal.
The grass really is that green.
You don’t know the peace of hearing cow bells, until that’s all you can hear.
Lauterbrunnen is known as the valley of 72 waterfalls.
Trummelbach Falls is a glacier waterfall. It carries down the water from the Jungfrau down to the valley. It feels like it’s thundering everywhere you walk.
Elevation of 7,687′
Had to take a cable car to get up here.
St. Beatus Caves
The Swiss are very proud of their flags, and it’s beautiful. That straight line in the back, that’s the cable car route.
