More than Chocolate in Switzerland
Switzerland: a country that has drawn travelers in with its curious charm, sky-touching mountains, and epic landscapes for centuries. Well, then there’s also the chocolate. As hackwriters.com writer Loraine Balita discovers in her article What Lies Beyond A Bar Of Chocolate, there is much more to Switzerland than skiing the Swiss Alps and indulging in that rich, smooth, delicious chocolate…
“‘This has got to be fake!’, I continuously told myself when the cruise ship approached Montreux. A medieval castle built on an islet facing a spectacular view ushered me to get off.
Snow topped mountains lined the other side of the lake, with its feet gently dipped in the waters. Sunlight peeked at the sides of the mountain, caressing the surface of the lake, making the water sparkle. Add that to the already astonishing view of the Chateau de Chillon (Castle of Chillon), makes a seemingly fake scene that would make anybody rub their eyes in disbelief.
This, I thought would give me the perfect reason to stay single, I could well say that I fell in love with a castle in Montreux. And just like discovering substance behind a pretty face, I discovered the historical significance of this place.
From a medieval castle to a medieval little town in Switzerland, I just couldn’t get enough of the interesting lives of Princesses, Knights and Dukes. The town of Murten has kept its charm and appeal with perfectly preserved towers, walls, streets, arcades and walkways that would surround any tourist who would want to walk back in time. You can almost see knights in horses passing by who would come to any damsel’s rescue. Snap back to reality and you’d see them in motorcycles, BMW’s and Audis screeching along the age old bricks used in the streets.
Wondering just how strong the brick fortresses are, I kicked the wall just beside the tower clock. After breaking a French pedicured toenail, I realized just how stupid I was expecting the structure to crumble right before my feet. If these have been here since the medieval times, it could have well withstood even the strongest typhoon, snow storm and earthquake since those times. Silly me, thinking I was Goliath who could kick this edifices right off of their feet. “

Switzerland is a small Alpine nation with a temperate Central Europe. It therefore has a tropical climate. Also, never had colonies in America or in Africa or elsewhere. Precisely because of this lack of colonial tradition must ask the question: how could a country like Switzerland,costa rica fishinga small, peaceful Alpine republic, to develop such a sophisticated culture in the art of making chocolate? Some explanations for these and other questions can be found in the subsequent chapters of this special. http://www.fishingcostaricaexperts.com

If you’ve never visited Europe in winter, you may be wondering if there are any special air travel concerns. With the efficient Swiss transportation system, including Zurich’s newly renovated airport, travel during winter months is not a problem.sportsbook there are several easy ports of entry into Switzerland.
