I fell in love with Switzerland when I had a crush on a boy in school whose parents were Swiss. I think I still do have a crush on Switzerland… More recently I spoke at a conference in Montreaux and learned all about Swiss wines and the Swiss wine-growing regions, taking time to visit vineyards.
My love of Switzerland has seen me often in and around Geneva – and it is from Geneva that you can access the rest of Switzerland easily by train. I fly Swiss mostly as they go from Heathrow and can be inexpensive but with 8kgs in cabin baggage you need a hold bag too. Easier is EasyJet with heavy-as-you-want cabin bags. I recommend *not* returning to Gatwick late if you live outside London and take public transport as I’ve experienced trouble every time. Hard lessons learned by a frequent traveller.
