Outdoors in Switzerland: Slideshow


Pictured Above: a trail over the town of Ennetbürgen

There's no doubt about it--Switzerland is best enjoyed outdoors. Thousands of hiking trails, hundreds of vineyard strolls, and tens of lake boats await. Unfortunately, some places in Switzerland, like Zurich, get more rain than London, but when the weather cooperates, there's no more beautiful place on earth.

If you need proof or just need help deciding where in Switzerland to go on a beautiful day like today, have a look at my slideshow: Outdoors in Switzerland. It was published yesterday on National Geographic's glimpse.org.

I have a naive question... when you say that Zurich gets more rain than London, do you mean it as a joke or did you actually see stats saying it rains more in Zurich?

Either way, Léman's lakeside weather is another reason why you choose the wrong place in Switzerland. That,having people staring at you when your hair's wet, or picking up serious laundry fights ;-)

No, if you check world climate data you can see that Zurich gets more rain than London--it averages about 42 inches a year vs. 30.

The finale was very interesting and full of professional and semi-professional acts and writing essays performances done by different Arab entertainers.

I write stories for the 7-12 crowd with a series on dogs - The Chronicles of The K-9 Boys and Girls on Locust Street. I find myself with several stories going at a time so I usually don't run into a writers block because all of the characters have so much to say. With the articles I write though there are times I must push back from the keyboard and go read one of your books or another of the authors I 'follow' personal letter for college unfortunately shooting my hero is not feasible - my dogs are pacifists; but I'm still laughing about that even after reading this whole thread.
