Zürich St. Gallen Schwyz

I always wanted to visit Switzerland. However, for some reason or another, I never really made it there until May 2006 – even though this was not the first time that I walked on Swiss soil: In summer 1996, when I was on my way to Paris, I came to Switzerland – and changed trains at Sargans station sometime around 10 p.m. at night.

However, this cannot be really considered as a visit. Thus, my first "real" stay in Switzerland was not until May 2006. Then, I spent four days in the city of Zürich. During this stay, I also met again some Germans (that now live in Switzerland) with whom I made friends one year earlier during my tour through Western Canada. Together with them, I have also been to the Swiss states of St. Gallen and Schwyz, where we have been hiking and sightseeing.

Some of the pictures taken during this trip are also on display in a small photo album.
