A Very Brief Visit to SwitzerlandMarch 24, 2019 • Photography, Travel
Last week, I went on my first work trip with my new job. We were kicking off a new project, so we needed to visit the offices of our client in Switzerland. It was a very brief trip, but I snapped a few photos that I thought I would share.
While most of the visit was spent in a meeting room, we did see a few little bits. Our first night was spent in Zurich. We ate raclette and walked along the river near our hotel. The next morning, I made sure to wake up extra early (5am UK time!) so I could wander around the area a bit more.
We spent the next day and most of Friday in Rapperswil, which is about 40 minutes from Zurich by train. It’s a small town that we were able to circle a few times despite mostly being in the aforementioned meeting!
Near our hotel was a very cute café called Good which made really nice chai lattes and had free Wifi, so we stopped here a couple of times to have a drink and get some work done.
On the morning before we flew home, I woke up very early again to pop to the Coop to buy some Swiss chocolate to bring back. I was so early that Starbucks wasn’t open, which led me to wander up near the
My overall impression of Switzerland was positive. It was very clean, almost improbably so. The buildings were lovely. It didn’t give the impression of being a place you’d go for an adventure and activity packed holiday, but I liked that. I like the idea of a calm holiday where you just walk around, café hop and take photos. It’s very expensive though! I am glad my work paid for my food and shelter. The one time I branched out and bought my own Starbucks, a white mocha and a panini cost me the equivalent of £14!
