They Tried to Make Me Go to Rehalp

SWITZERLAND | Fri, 3 Jul 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [739]

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 [439]

  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 >

Zurich Beautiful

SWITZERLAND | Tue, 30 Jun 2015 | By davidpearlman | Views [527]

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 >

Zurich and Budapest

HUNGARY | Sun, 28 Sep 2014 | By schmodude | Views [687]

I woke up and checked out of my hostel before boarding a train back to Zurich. Since I didn’t get to spend much time Zurich the other day, I wanted to check it out more before my plane left. I’m glad I did. There were some great sights I ... Read more >

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 [472]

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 >

Day One & Two –   Travelling and Arrival at Our Chalet After a plane, a bus, a night in a hotel, another bus, two trains, another bus and then a mini van… I have arrived at my destination! It was definitely worth the trip… ... Read more >

To the Land of Schnitzel and Lederhosen

GERMANY | Wed, 14 Apr 2010 | By neil_loewen | Views [1229] | Comments [1]

After sending Bonnie back to Canada from Zurich, I stood in the airport all alone with nowhere to be.  I could get on any train I wanted, go in any direction, to any country (with my rail pass), and I still didn't know where this freedom would take me ... Read more >

Florence and the Swiss Alps!

SWITZERLAND | Fri, 9 Apr 2010 | By neil_loewen | Views [2070] | Comments [3]

We had now arrived at Ancona, Italy, and had to catch a train to Florence. We walked off the ferry and onto the vast expanse of concrete that was the port. We did our best to dodge the semi's that were barreling out of the port, and managed to survive ... Read more >

So Much Distance to Cover, So Little Time

ITALY | Mon, 15 Mar 2010 | By neil_loewen | Views [1072] | Comments [3]

After Alice went to the home, and I assumed just hopped on her plane and flew home with no problems (never assume), I immediately jumped into the second phase of my adventure.  I was to fly to Basel, Switzerland that night (from Barcelona, ... Read more >

real traveling: Paris - Thessoloniki

GREECE | Sat, 28 Mar 2009 | By jjassen | Views [668] | Comments [2]

I write this from arguably the best internet cafe I've encountered - plush leather office chairs, euro-style techno music... the almost palpable gamer culture is more evident than the Greek culture... because YES, I'm in Thessoloniki, greece! In ... Read more >

So so so annoyed

SWITZERLAND | Wed, 18 Jul 2007 | By christina_wallace | Views [329]

The internet at the hostel is terrible. It just has these spasms where it doesn't work for a minute or two or three, but it continues to deduct your time. Well I was checking email just now and trying to check in for my flight and I had two minutes left, ... Read more >

"Swiss efficiency" seems to extend to everything except the internet

SWITZERLAND | Tue, 17 Jul 2007 | By christina_wallace | Views [384]

I made it to Zurich just fine... it seems that sleeper cars on night trains are actually quite comfortable and I slept the best since coming on this trip. Am seriously a fan of sleeper cars.  My hostel is clean and huge and also the nicest of all of ... Read more >
