Zürich, Switzerland: Cheese, Chocolate & the Alps - March 2015
Swiss cheese. Swiss chocolate. Swiss Alps. Our weekend getaway to Zürich, Switzerland, tucked into the foot of the Alps, was a rush. We dined on rich cheese fondue, marveled at the bricks of chocolate and were thoroughly enveloped by the towering mountain scenery around us.
We spent an afternoon strolling around the nearby town of Rapperswil, known as the "Town of Roses," visiting its 13th century castle set as the backdrop to a medieval village.
