! Ever been to Switzerland ? Well, that's where I am,
writing this little article for The Social Diary.
It's geographically centered right in the middle
of Europe and has borders with France (we didn't choose :…),
Germany, Austria, Italy and Lichtenstein. Clean and quiet safe,
it's a nice country, and most of my American friends think that
way. As a matter a fact, they wonder why I want to move to SD
! That's another story… Back to the subject !
knows Switzerland as the country of banks, luxury wrist watches,
chocolate and Coucou Clocks, right ?
here is also another activity that most of you may know about
: skiing ! A very big part of the country is made of mountains,
the Swiss Alps. I can tell you one thing, it's awesome ! Ski resorts
are all over the place and from the very " Commonwealth"
Verbier, where you better speak English
to be understood, to the very select Gstaad,
where you can eventually trip on Prince Charles's skis,
you have all kinds of places in the Alps that are just little
for instance, is one of the cleanest little village, as it is
forbidden to drive any car there. All transportation by foot or
electric car, and the site view on the Matterhorn is just a blast
is a great place where you can also play golf in the summer.
you can have a combo : skiing in the day time and just after that,
to prevent yourself from being sore, you can enjoy some après-ski
in thermal water ! I've tried it myself and mmmhhh… What
a pleasure !
is small, but you can have fun here ! The list above is not exhaustive
at all, as it would take me pages to describe you all the good
spots ! But if you are interested in coming here sometime, check
You will find all the tips, pictures and links to select the right
place for you ! Enjoy the ride !
