Switzerland, another one checked from my bucket list. I was pretty lucky to have this flight at the last moment in my roster and for my luck, the crew was awesome as well. We arrived at 8:00pm at the hotel and we arranged to meet up at the lounge to organize what we were going to do in the morning. While we were chatting and sharing ideas, we ordered a Swiss Burger along with a local beer. I was so excited, I mean, I’ve always wanted to eat a Swiss burger, that I even asked the waitress impatiently “Is it really the burger from the Swiss cow? Local cow? The big cows?” She laugh and said “Yes, not imported. All meat is from our local Swiss cows.” The burger was juicy, thick and big. Totally what I was expecting. After eating our juicy delicious burger, we finally agreed to rent a car and drive to the Swiss Alps which was an hour and half of trip. We met at 8am next day, ate some quick breakfast and left, we were like 7 of us. This was a great and one of a life time crew opportunity, I’m not exaggerating. Most crew don’t even do anything and they see renting a car like a big deal. Fortunately, we all wanted to see the alps and have a wonderful road trip experience in beautiful Switzerland.
We passed the city which had some classic old architecture, the view of the farms, nature, green everywhere, the amazing mountains…the road trip was beautiful indeed. I totally recommend it, you will enjoy the amazing views and good sightseeing spots to take photos. After an hour or so, we arrived at Rigis Swiss Alps. A breathtaking panoramic view across the Alps along with one of the oldest mountain railways, enjoyed the surroundings of 3 different water bodies. It has well signposted hiking trails, perfect for walks and mountain hikes. The flora view is amazing, mountains, lakes etc. It will really delight you. This is also located at the central of Switzerland. The whole area offers hotels, restaurants, souvenirs shops, hiking in summer and skiing in the winter! We didn’t hike, we took the rack railway, recommended as well. You’ll enjoy the view.
These photos were on our way to Rigis:
We also stopped at one of the restaurants before continuing our alps adventure 😀
I had local beer and pasta, delicious! Service was very friendly and warm.
After we all ate, we went to the top…
…and enjoyed a spectacular sightseeing.
We stayed overall like two hours or so, we took lots of photos and enjoyed the amazing landscape. On the way back we all fall asleep
except obviously the driver, which it was the Brazilian girl who volunteer to drive. We arrived at 6pm at the hotel, one hour before the wake up call. We didn’t sleep, I know I didn’t. I took a shower, prepared myself and went down to check out. In the flight we were all so tired, at least we sleep an hour in the car though. Although, we couldn’t stop talking about the beautiful road trip we had together. This layover is indeed in my ‘top layovers list’. I had so much fun with the crew and enjoyed every minute of it. ♡
