As you can see this is a scheduled post, because last night’s post would have told you we are on a plane right now. Or if you had read this later, we would already be planting our boots in Harbin. Buurrr!
Merry Christmas!! Hope you a silent and peaceful night.
Today’s post is not about Harbin.
It’s all about Switzerland, the one other country that Mel seems to have a lot of affinity with. Not so much for leisure but for work (er maybe…). And work that is on time, all the time. That’s the reputation at least!
Well, so far so good. Had not experienced an occasion where this was an exception during our journeys in Switzerland (ok, not Mel anyway). Knock on wood.
There is another reputation though – that the country is rich and expensive. Full of millionaires and billionaires we think (have not met any – yet). Perhaps if we dig a little we might find treasure hidden underground. It could be true that there’s gold in them hills (mountains to be exact)! LOL.
The story of our travel handprint in Switzerland is one of agony and regret. For Suan that is. Aside from the journey eons ago in 2003, Suan had missed out on joining Mel on quite a few occasions…
Full of promise that she shall join next time round, we share our ‘ancien voyage‘ that happened some years ago. It’s wonderful to know that some things don’t change so much. Watch out for 4 more stories in the coming weeks, as we share with you how it is like to travel within one of the world’s richest countries.
P.S: anyone remember Robin Leach? We feel like we are doing a remake of ‘lifestyles of the rich and famous’…
