My Swiss Experience...
Highs: Seeing Lorenz again; going to the Matterhorn; seeing 'the Swiss Alps'; the chocolate shop
selection; the bakery options; the cleanliness of the trains; the timeliness of the trains; fondue.
Lows: Having my flight be delayed 3 hours from Dubrovnik to Zurich; having such a short stay; saying
'good-bye' to Lorenz.
Best Moment: Seeing the Matterhorn with Lorenz.
Craziest Moment: Having the train conductor apologize for a 4-minute delay in departure that our
train was going to experience.
Smells: Cheese coming from fondue pots in the fondue restaurants we went to; chocolate coming from
the chocolate shops.
Sounds: The sound of air while being way up high in the snowy mountains.
Sights: The Matterhorn; the Swiss Alps; sheep and cows; tons of chocolate shops and bakeries.
Tastes: Fondue with mushrooms; fondue with tomatoes; different types of chocolate; apfel kuchen.
Purchases: Some chocolate and a few more items of clothing from H&M.
Street Food: Sausages; big soft pretzels.
Fun Food Finds: A McGruyere burger at McDonald's. Kind of funny.
