I thought about separating this post into…oh, ten different ones? Switzerland was an ‘experience’ in every sense of the word. This was my first time ever traveling alone and as much as I told everyone how excited I was for it and not in the least bit worried, truth be told,  was terrified…so shhhh don’t tell anyone. It’s not like this was a solo camping trip in some secluded mountains or navigating through a third world country, it was Zurich, Switzerland (top 3 happiest places in the world I might add) but for me, this was huge.

The trip started at the Zurich Film Festival. I stepped into my hotel room, alone, and put all of my belongings away exactly where they were meant to be. I never do this. I typically live out of my suitcase and attempt to keep everything as consolidated as possible. It felt nice to turn this room into my own for a few days and to have a space that was completely my own. The festival itself was so inspiring. Now I’m no film maker and definitely not an actor but being around individuals who are so passionate about what they do, no matter what it is, is thrilling and inspires me to chase every single dream and goal that crosses my mind. The film festival ended for me by seeing “La La Land.” Let’s pause real quick so I can say that if you have not seen this film, GO DO IT! Go do it right now! Well, not right now…finish reading this post first. 😉

As amazing as the film festival was, the most transforming part of the trip was going to Mount Pilatus. A seemingly unplanned day trip turned into one of the best days of my entire life. After a short train ride to the bottom of the mountain, it was time to board (what I later found out) the worlds steepest mountain cart! The views are indescribable but if you look at the photo above you can see a glimpse into the stunning landscape I was surrounded by! The day only continued to fall into place with more mind blowing views and three, or maybe it was four, rides down the hill in a somewhat sketchy toboggan! I almost don’t want to share too many details about this day because it was so magical and special, I need to keep some of it just to myself.

I guess you’ll just have to take a trip there for yourself to experience the wonders of the legends of the dragon mountain.

    I’ve only been to Switzerland once as a teen on the end of year skiing trip, which was a lotta fun, after reading your post about it again…I want go back with own family and see it again, the over the clouds experience looks mind blowing, like when I lay back in the snow looking up at night sky and watched the northern lights for first time few years back at ice hotel in Sweden, made me cry, some places or events touch ya soul…my weakness is sunrises and sunsets. Sighs** ty for blogs enjoying them all :-). Xx

    I think it’s so incredible that you did this trip by yourself! You have so many great posts about travelling, I’m wondering if you have any tips for budgeting when it comes to taking trips abroad? Or any travelling abroad tips in general?
