My wife and I have another final week of this summer break left and spontaneously decided on our return from Venice (see previous post), to spend it in Switzerland. I wouldn’t have thought of Switzerland as a travel destination so soon, but – as with Venice – this may be a good time to go there, what with the absence of large international (esp. Chinese) tour groups. So we quickly booked our train to Zurich and a few hotels. In the country we’ll use the Swiss Travel Pass for maximum flexibility.
There’ll only be a few dark elements lined up, the main thing is to see the Alps, esp. the Matterhorn, which I have so far never seen in the flesh … Looking forward to that. Hope the weather plays along …
This change of plans also means that there will be no blog posts until after my return. But then you can expect something brand new yet again.
Because of this hiatus I’ve also decided to extend the poll for the next themed blog post by another week. If you haven’t voted yet, please do so (by leaving a comment below) over the next nine days. I’ll reveal the winning theme on Sunday 30 August.
Here are the four options again:
a) dark tourism and ash
b) dark tourism and flames
c) dark tourism and cars
d) dark tourism and villas
