A passport is a small little book that opens so many big doors to new experiences and cultures. I recently got my new passport and it has awoken my sense of adventure to the point that I have decided that every year I am going to try and visit a new place.
Recently I was invited to a wedding in England and before heading out to England my Fiancé and I spent some time in Switzerland which we absolutely loved. Switzerland is no doubt one of the most beautiful countries. Just driving from one town to the other left me in awe of the spectacular views. I love every part of the country but these 3 places were memorable.
1. Montreux Switzerland:
First and favorite was Montreux. This quaint and luxurious city feels like a resort town with its small shops and narrow streets. If you go on some of the walking trails in the residential areas, you will find some beautiful hidden waterfalls. Be warned to bring good walking shoes as this city is best experienced on foot and will involve walking on hills and cobble stone. This to me is what makes Montreux a treasure. The central business district is a second away from the lake and is lined with plenty of restaurants and coffee shops.
2. Vevey Switzerland:
We had the most amazing time in Vevey. With sidewalks by the lake and stunning, unobstructed views of Swiss mountains, it is a magical place. there is a cute village with tons of restaurants, bakeries and shops. I really enjoyed walking down the streets and checking out the cute shops around the area.3. The Charlie Chaplin Museum:
Located in Vevey, this is one stop to make if you are in the area. You will get to tour Charlie’s Mansion and watch one of his masterpieces. The Mansion has a certain understated beauty and is filled with Charlie Chaplin’s personal belongings including his , notes, passport, hat and cane.
If you are traveling to Europe I highly recommend a stop in Switzerland. You will definitely not regret it.
