Switzerland is a beautiful place, it was my first time visiting and I can definitely say I’d love to go back. It had everything a snowy holiday should have from mountains to mulled wine and much more. It was of course absolutely freezing but we had the right gear to keep us nice and warm. We took full advantage of the swiss cuisine, for us, it consisted mainly of chocolate and fondue! (Don’t judge, boarding is energy consuming). Snowboarding was great fun, if not a little frustrating at times. Definitely felt the affects of being on the slopes all week but hopefully it will get me back into keeping fit.
Usually during the day we would take a break and go for something warm to drink – mulled wine or hot chocolate. When its cold outside, there really isn’t anything better! Saas Fee, the resort which we were staying in is actually the highest in Europe so somedays the top of the mountain dropped to -25 C. And yes it was cold! My gloves actually froze at one point, which was a little unpleasant. But it was well worth reaching the top of the mountain, where they have a revolving restaurant and spectacular views.
I’d love to go back during the summer and stay around Lake Geneva, the transfer from Geneva airport meant we got to see a lot of the country side and towns which look beautiful. All in all a great trip!
