Grüezi People Who Are Cool Enough to Still Read This Blog,
Your involvement in this ultra-exclusive portion of the Internet has gotten even better. Because you, mitenand, are some of the very first to know that there’s a new book coming from yours truly. And it will be available next week.
Almost hot off the presses, 99.9 Ways to Travel Switzerland Like a Local is one part travel book, one part culture guide, and total bucket list enjoyment.
It allows you to say adieu to Lucerne and allegra to the place the Swiss voted most beautiful. It encourages you to cut the Swiss army knife from your shopping list and replace it with a rubber messenger bag. And it gives you the inspiration you need to stop following umbrella-toting tour guides (or books that act like them) and start following 320,000 well-dressed Swiss cows instead.
Whether you’re a vacationer rethinking your version of touring, an expatriate who wants to get to know your adopted country on a deeper level, or even if you’re Swiss—99.9 Ways to Travel Switzerland Like a Local is for anyone who believes that the best travel stories come from a desire not just to take a snapshot of a place from a train window, but to stop, smile, and disembark for a while in order to bring the meaning of that blurry photo into sharper focus.
To promote this new book, The Frau will make special appearances in Switzerland next month. Mark your calendars, mitenand, as she would love to see you at one of the following:
The Zurich Writers Workshop May 14, 2:30 p.m. (The Frau will join other authors to discuss how to build a writing career.)
The American International Club of Zurich TGIF, May 19, 6:30 p.m. (The Frau will discuss American life after Switzerland (scary!), the benefits of traveling like a local, and host a quiz—with a book prize—to see who already travels Swisser than the Swiss.)
Global Book Fair May 20, 10 a.m.-2 p.m. (The Frau will read a story to children and discuss some "Swisser than the Swiss" activities for families.)
Until next week, Yodelers, when the shameless self-promotion continues.
P.S. Join The Frau's mailing list and be the first to know when the book is available.
