How gorgeous are these roses at a flower stand in Geneva?
My most frequently asked question: “What is your favorite destination?”
My most frequent answer: “That’s a hard one. How about my top 5?”
There are so many beautiful places on this planet and the diversity makes it impossible for me to pick just one. It’s like comparing apples and oranges.
That said, I can tell you that Switzerland is in my top two destinations. As to whether it falls at number one or two, it just depends on what comes out of my mouth the day I’m asked!
Why Switzerland Is High On My List
1. Diverse landscapes
2. Friendly people
3. Colorful. Colorful. Colorful.
5. Peaceful and safe
