Switzerland 2015

I just arrived back home a few days ago after my little trip to Switzerland to which my swiss friend Muriel invited me and it was so amazing!
I was really positively surprised by how friendly and helpful swiss people were- It turned out they are very generous, too - hahah. 
During my stay i basically went to each part of Switzerland, the german swiss, the french swiss and the italian swiss - I am so glad my friend who invited me has a car so the whole traveling around was quite convenient. It was surprising to see how architecture, culture and mentality of the people changed depending on the region they were living in although Switzerland is not a big country.

However, out of all those linguistically different regions I liked the italian Swiss the most, probably because with it’s palm trees and italian inhabitants it just felt most like a vacation for quite a northern person like me. 
We chose to travel to Lugano, which is located near a lake which is called Lugano as well, the food and houses were very italian, just like the people and if you wanna see a lot of expensive italian sports cars, this is the place to go for you! 
If you wanna grab a cocktail I found a bar called ‘seven’ best for this because they really make awesome cocktails! 

Here are some photos I took during our little journey; 

photos of (us in) Lugano, as you can see the architecture and atmosphere was very italian!
And for a moment the idea to just grab a backpack and tramp through italy crossed my mind and I thought about all the people I'd meet and all the things I'd discover on this spontaneous adventure but then reality had me back and I decided to focus on finishing my plate of pasta instead. 

Photos of (us in) Lucern, the architecture was quite french but the mentality of the people was rather german, not as grumpy though! :'D
We also did some fun things like driving up a mountain with the Quad and going for a horseback ride. 

The view during the Quad ride. It was so different to what I was used to seeing every day that I almost got a little angry at my friend for taking the beauty of the surrounding nature for so granted..
All over, I’d say Switzerland is a place I certainly do not regret going and would recommend everyone to visit at least once in their lifetime - it’s definitely very unique!

Vegan update: 
it’s only day 5 of my experiment but it has worked really well so far, I’ve even found that when eating out you can order pizza and stuff without the cheese and other animal products which makes it not too hard to find places that actually offer ‘vega’ foods. 

Since many shampoos and cosmetic products are often tested on animals, too, I wanna try to cut down on those as well during this month and see how long I could go without using any shampoo or conditioner for a while. 

Oh! And I've discovered this vegan bar which tastes just awesome and gives you nearly all the energy you need! - So if you're a vegan and wanna try it, look for this - maybe you can find it where you live! I've bought these in Switzerland..

I hope this post was able to give you a little insight into the small but very nice country of Switzerland and you enjoyed reading it. 

Where did you travel recently and did you like the experience?
