6 Days and Counting!!!!!!

USA | Fri, 24 Jun 2016 | By travelingherbie | Views [441] | Comments [2]

The excitement is finally setting in! I have 3 days of work left to get through but I plan on being mostly packed by the end of the weekend so I don't have to stress about that also next week. Watching the movie Under the Tuscan Sun and it is making ... Read more >

Luzern, Switzerland

SWITZERLAND | Tue, 24 Nov 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [685]

Well, the inevitable has happened. I've lost my passport. I am one of those people who constantly loses things. Important things like keys, wallets, and IDs (just ask my brother and sister-in-law, whose house keys, car keys, and credit cards I lost ... Read more >

They Kiss Thrice in Switzerland

SWITZERLAND | Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By marielasummerhays | Views [361]

The sweet scent of freshly baked bread rode a crisp wind to greet me, gently pulling me from my intended path to the train station. Nowhere to be in a hurry, I let the comforting aroma lead me to a nearby bakery. Perfectly uniform pastries lined the ... Read more >

Féchy Fête

SWITZERLAND | Tue, 29 Sep 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [561]

When I think wine, I don't think Switzerland. I think Italy, France, and California. But, lo and behold, the vineyards of France are just an arbitrary political border away, and grapevines know no such bounds. The climate that produces globally lauded ... Read more >

Rolle: Inauguration de la Grand-rue

SWITZERLAND | Sun, 13 Sep 2015 | By elcastleberry | Views [510]

There is a lot to be said for the size of a place. Rolle is small - not a city, but not a village, either. It is situated between the much larger, cosmopolitan cities of Lausanne and Geneva. With a population of 6,000, Rolle is best known for its placement ... Read more >

Zurich to Salzburg on the Cheap

SWITZERLAND | Sat, 4 Jul 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [635] | Comments [1]

    One movie I enjoy is Plains, Trains and Automobiles. John Candy asked Steve Martin if he ever travelled by bus before. When Martin replied in the negative, Candy mentioned his mood probably won't improve. Yesterday I took the bus ... Read more >

They Tried to Make Me Go to Rehalp

SWITZERLAND | Fri, 3 Jul 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [735]

One thing I like to do when I travel is ride tram, and subway lines to interesting sounding stops.  I saw a streetcar headed to  Rehalp. I had no idea what was there. Of course, Rehalp reminded me of the Amy Winehouse song. I took the 22 minute ... Read more >

Final Zurich

SWITZERLAND | Fri, 3 Jul 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [434]

  Yesterday was my final day in Zurich.  It was a nice day, but not a particularly exciting one. First of all, I purchased a Zurich Card which entitles the bearer to free transit within the city-free entry into the museums for 24 hours. ... Read more >

James Joyce over Fondue

SWITZERLAND | Thu, 2 Jul 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [520]

Yesterday, I went on another excursion out of town.  Excursions are pretty nice, because in addition to seeing other parts of the country, it is nice to meet other travelers.  Yes, I am staying on hostels where it is easy to meet other travelers, ... Read more >

Zurich Beautiful

SWITZERLAND | Tue, 30 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [517]

Yesterday, I checked out of the YMCA and left Basel. I am glad I did. The YMCA was sort of weird and a pain in the ass-and it has nothing to do with the big black guy who  basically slept next to me for one night-which he did.  There was a ... Read more >

Final sprinkle of Basel

SWITZERLAND | Mon, 29 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [462] | Comments [1]

Yesterday, I spent one last day in Basel. Not because I thought there was so much more to see here, but simply because the day before I was out in other parts of the country from 10:00 am until after midnight-so I didn't feel like packing up, checking ... Read more >

Aliens, Trains, and Automobiles

SWITZERLAND | Sun, 28 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [549]

Yesterday was a day I was looking forward to.  My girlfriend's friend's friend (who lives in Switzerland) picked me up yesterday to show me some towns in Switzerland.  And I learned he lived 2 1/2 hours away, so I was impressed that he would ... Read more >

It's Fun to Stay at the....

SWITZERLAND | Sat, 27 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [541]

I am staying at the YMCA hostel here in Basel. I am convinced this is it.  This is the place the Village People wrote about. Why would I say that? Well first all, this is an ok hostel. There are 8 beds in the room, plenty of people sitting around ... Read more >

Basel me this..

SWITZERLAND | Sat, 27 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [492]

Yesterday was my first full day in Basel, Switzerland.  Like most places I have visited, I didn't know what was here. I knew there was a large arts festival. Simply because Arts Basel Miami is a giant arts festival in Miami held each winter.  ... Read more >

SWITZERLAND | Sat, 27 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [431]

I caught a train to Lucerne (Luzern) today. The landscape along the hour ride was filled with lakes and mountains. I got to the hostel and dropped off my bags before heading off to see the town. The lake was awesome and full of sailboats. I sat on a ... Read more >

Delayed Travels

SWITZERLAND | Fri, 26 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [467]

I enjoyed the nice breakfast again and then I caught a bus to the airport. My flight to Zurich bounced my through Hamburg on the way. My first flight was delayed. Also my second flight was delayed. It wasn’t enjoyable. I finally arrived in Zurich ... Read more >

SWITZERLAND | Mon, 24 Jun 2013 | By effyau | Views [374]

It’s weird, or perhaps it’s not, how comforting the British accent sounds in a place that’s not home. It’s totally taken the culture out of this place but no doubt that will return with the waiter. I’ve been putting off ... Read more >

SWITZERLAND | Mon, 14 Jan 2013 | By gezokeefe | Views [409]

During my European summer trip in 2012 Switzerland was one of my most anticipated countries to visit. I had high expectations before visiting and it exceeded all of them when I arrived. Everything about this magnificent country was perfect. It was clean, ... Read more >
