November 6 – 8: Zurich, Switzerland
My November travel started off with catching up with a high school friend, Sejal. With our work schedules we haven’t had the chance to spend some time alone so it was a perfect little getaway to reconnect. Thankful for our memories but most thankful for her love of food. Friday night we went to dinner at a Vegetarian restaurant, Tibits, where you weigh your food and pay. I’m not sure why we thought it was a set price but ended up paying more for that dinner than going to any other restaurant. The rest of the night we walked around Zurich in central Altstadt (Old Town) along the Limmat River.
On Saturday, we took a trip a few hours out of Zurich to Interlaken. As usual, I was getting in trouble everywhere I went. I got yelled at for having my feet up on a seat… and more importantly because I had my feet up on a first class seat. My Zurich post may be short but I’ll let the pictures speak for itself. When you walk onto the Interlaken grounds, you are facing a picture perfect sky with mountains as the backdrop. Then we took a (very long) walk to a Lake and watched the sunset in Switzerland. That moment, just sitting there watching the sunset on the lake with mountains in the background is what I’ll keep with me forever. On our way back to Zurich we stopped by the town of Bern.
Sunday morning we spent walking around the rest of Zurich – walked by Fraumunster and St Peter church and the Gewerbeschule museum (I had to look up these names after the fact). We took a stroll along Bahnofstrasse, the heart of shopping district. This was window shopping to a whole other level. Most things were closed on Sunday so we ended our trip by sitting on the edge of Lake Zurich.
