As one of the most expensive countries in the world, I never even considered planning a trip to Switzerland in the past. Circumstances led to my family spending a year in French-speaking Switzerland, and now I know that budget travel is possible! You just need to know some tricks. It is a jaw-droppingly gorgeous country where the cows graze happily on mountain pastures, medieval ramparts surround impossibly charming villages and Swiss people enjoy outdoor pursuits with dedication. How does a tour of a chocolate factory sound? Swiss travel done right will leave you with insight into what makes life worth living.
