Swiss Vacation Highlights


Over the next few days, I will post some of the highlights of my Christmas vacation in Switzerland. I had a fantastic 2-week break in this beautiful country that is rich in the history of Christian reformation. Thanks to a close friend living in Zurich who not only invited me and several other friends over but also generously hosted 5 of us in her apartment, be our knowledgeable guide, efficiently planned our holiday, and gave us (well, at least me) the most memorable Christmas vacation.

I had the opportunity to spend some days in the Alps (minus the skiing part); go on the Swiss Reformation trail; visit some of the most beautiful cities in Switzerland and the border towns of Italy, Germany and France; shop (read: window shopping) at the various Christmas markets; meet up with my PhD supervisor and his newly wedded wife; and discover the grave of Erasmus of Rotterdam along the way! Of course, not to mention the experience of a couple of train cancellations that I was told never happened in Switzerland! More to come over the next few days...
