Zürich, Switzerland

My first air travel this year didn't take me to Sweden - but to the country Sweden always gets confused with. Switzerland. It was my first visit to Switzerland - a country in Europe I have failed to set my foot in during all my European travels. So even though it was a short trip - less than a week, with only four full days in Switzerland - I was kind of excited and packed my SLR to try to catch some photos.

I started out by spending a day in Zürich - a beautiful city, by the beautiful lake and the Swiss alps close by. It was a cold day and I went straight from the airport for sightseeing and when the day was over I have been on the go for almost 36 hours straight. By 9 pm, I was beat and off to sleep...

I've selected some of my pictures in a little slide show. The sun didn't come out until the very end of the day - so unfortunately the foggy, cloudy sky doesn't give justice to this beautiful city! Enjoy!

Oj, hade du aldrig besökt Schweiz förut? Jag ÄLSKAR Schweiz, har bott där två gånger och min fars morbror bodde där i 50 år innan han dog för två år sedan. Jag känner dock inte till den tysktalande särskilt bra utan har alltid varit mest i den fransktalande.
Jättefina bilder!
Kram

Petra H - nope - det var mitt första besök så det var lite spännande. Fick se en hel del med tanke på hur kort tid jag var där. Skulle gärna besöka Zurich igen - på sommaren - måste var helt fantastiskt vackert.
