Snapshots of Switzerland

I take my camera just about everywhere with me! Especially since moving to Switzerland. Everything is just so picturesque. And because of this, I currently have lots of pictures stored on my computer that don’t really have a place in specific blog post though because they’re just random snapshots of my new world. So, I decided to start a blog series called Snapshots of Switzerland that show bits and pieces of Switzerland using these random pictures that I take on a day-to-day basis. And along with the snapshots, I’ll give a bit of insight into what it’s like living in my new world. Cause, boy, is it different than anywhere else I have ever lived.











  1. Chocolate is infinitely better here. Even just the plain chocolate bars. Confession: it’s rare that my room doesn’t store at least part of a chocolate bar at all times. And I never used to love eating just plain chocolate. But, now, it’s become an obsession (yikes!).
  2. Everything closes down around 6-7 here, except for the restaurants. And on Sundays, nothing is open (except for a Chinese restaurant on the corner). So, sometimes it’s really difficult to get that chocolate bar of mine to satisfy my after dinner sweet craving!
  3. Dessert is eaten at lunchtime in Switzerland and not after dinner. Weird, I know.
  4. Scooters are really popular here. And I’m not talking like vespa or a motorized scooter; I’m talking about like a razor scooter. Everyone from little kids to grown men in business suits ride them down the sidewalk through the city.
  5. At restaurants you don’t wait to be seated, you just pick a table and sit down. Before I knew this, I would wait by the door just like I do in America. And then I would always wonder how everyone knew to speak English to me. Now, that I know, I can do a better job of blending in instead of sticking out like a sore thumb!

It’s only been a few weeks (really, is that all??) but I have already fallen head over heels in love with this place.


  1. Gorgeous photos, Caroline! I chuckled at the part about waiting to be seated at a restaurant! Too funny! xo
