Zürich

Zürich

I would describe Zürich as a polished metropolis, fused with a stunning burst of rural scenery. The buzzy city is situated next to serene Lake Zürich, set against a majestic backdrop of snow-capped mountains. It really is a beautiful place. My weekender began at the train station, where me and my beau made the short 10 [...]
