Whenever I travel for more than a week, I like including a ‘downtime’ to avoid burnout. Switzerland was my vacation from vacation during my 3-week trip to Europe.
From Salzburg, I briefly changed trains in Munich to get to Zurich. Now that I think about it, I wish I pushed through with my original plan of staying in Munich even for 3 days. Oh well, guess I’ll just have to save that for another Euro trip. 😉
I arrived in Zurich on a gloomy afternoon, but after emerging from the train station and having a glimpse of the Old Town, I immediately regretted my decision to just stay for a night.
I stayed at a hostel in the heart of Old Town. And while I almost died carrying my luggage up several flight of winding stairs, I couldn’t complain about the medieval surroundings.
I was craving for Asian food, and found there’s a Thai restaurant not too far from the hostel. I knew Switzerland was expensive, but I wasn’t prepared to shell out CHF15 for a plate of Pad Thai. 😐 My only consolation was the serving size can feed two people, so I saved half of it for next day’s breakfast.
