Travel Diary: Part 2 - SWITZERLAND
Switzerland was never a country that appealed to me enough to book a holiday there. I shamefully thought that Switzerland was all snowy and therefore it never interested me. However, I really surprised myself and fell in love with everything about the country.
Again with Eurocamp, we stayed in a little town called Susten at their Bella Tola campsite. It was located on a large hill which was surrounded by a forest and lots and LOTS of mountains in the Valais region.
I liked that the weather was the same as the UK (I don't cope very well with hot weather!) and I loved that the currency out there is Swiss Franks. I also found the country was very clean. There was no graffiti and no litter to be seen anywhere!
The swimming pool was freezing as you can imagine! However, it was really lovely swimming with such lovely views. We had lots of fun with water pistols, frisbees and bats and balls* that were sent to us by the lovely people at Ultimate Ears. I have a post on Ultimate Ears coming soon about something mega cool so look out for that one!
We had our first little taster of Italian gelato ice-cream whilst exploring the town of Sion. It was a cute little village which had all kinds of shops and lots of outlet shoe stores!
There was something very Harry Potter-esque about Sion. It's definitely due to the pointed roof on just about every building. ALSO, that building looks just like a miniature Hogwarts, right?
We also found a cool fresh water stream running through the middle of the town but it was well hidden away behind residential houses and other buildings!
On the last day as we was driving through Switzerland to leave for Italy, we drove right to the top of the mountains which literally seemed to take forever. The roads were SO windy and never seemed to end! However, it was totally worth the sicky feeling in the car because well... the views are just breathtaking...
But Josh was a little shy for a photo...
But not me! All I kept thinking was *I must have a photo of me in front of the Switz mountains to share on my blog!*
Look out for the final episode in my travel diary. We will be moving onto bellissimo* Italy and I have a lot of photos to share with you so be warned!
(*Bellissimo means 'beautiful' in Italian)
