Sunday in Zurich

I’m guessing that some of the people who said Zurich was boring visited on a Sunday. Cafes and restaurants are open but everything else seems to be closed. That’s fine with me – I’m perfectly happy not shopping and not spending money. However, my wife isn’t content just walking around taking in the sights again (we’ve already walked through most of the pedstrian areas). I’m starting to think that 7 days in Zurich is a bit much, especially since shops will also be closed Jan. 1, 2008 and at least some are also closed Jan. 2. Tomorrow (shops are open from 10-4 on Dec. 31st) might be our last day of shopping in Zurich…

I hope that the New Year’s Eve fireworks are impressive enough to keep my wife happy for a few days. We’re in Zurich until Jan. 3rd when we fly to Madrid.

    Have you considered taking a train trip to Luzern … or even Interlaken (you can take a train to the top of Europe, but it does require some planning). The cities are great but seeing all the small villages and country side is even better. Switzerland is a beautiful country, but you dont really see it until you get away from the city. Have fun!

  2. Zurich leaves a big lasting impression on the tourists, be it the scenic Alp views, the food, the shopping, the art or just the spirit and feel of all that is Zurich. Located on the shores of Lake Zurich, among the most beautiful scenic views, Zurich is really a wonderful place.

    I should be as lucky as your wife! She has no idea how good she has it. This coming from someone who hasn’t even made it out of the states. I’m sure it’s just beautiful there. I’d be in heaven taking photographs. I carry my camera everywhere. I hope you enjoy the rest of your time there.
