Switzerland from Above

One of my favorite countries in the world:

From YouTube

Relax and enjoy the landscapes and history of Switzerland, in beautiful HD video. Great if you plan to visit, or if you want to learn more about Switzerland.

This journey is Romont, the Chartreuse de la Valsainte (ancient monastery), Lake Geneva, Montreaux (of Jazz Festival fame), Verbier (famous ski resort), Valais (mountains), brief flight over Italy, then Locarno and Ascona on the shores of Lake Maggiore.

    Paul and I were born in Geneva Swizerland. My family moved back to the states when we were only 16 months old so I have no memory of living there as my older siblings do. In 1994 my sister and I took a trip to visit Geneva...a trip I was supposed to take with my mother but she unfortunately died before we were able to go. It is such a beautiful country.

    last month....we landed in Zurich for a connecting
    flight...............I am determined to go back there............what I
    saw of Switzerland from the plane was absolutely breathtaking.........and I highly
    recommend SwissAir........especially after the dismal United flight on
    the way home.......

  • I've been to Switzerland often and never once experienced a single problem. I'm fluent in German and my French and Italian are pretty good plus I always have phrase books and dictionaries,with me. I never got the feeling that even if I had not had my books, however, things would have been difficult. The Swiss know the value of being good hosts. I feel the problems come when non-speakers don't try to meet native speakers halfway, assuming that they speak English, for instance. My ex-sister-in-law was that way and alienated everyone she met in Europe because she refused to acknowledge she was not in the US.

    I've lived in Europe at various times throughout my life for 15+ years. As a 'Germanephone' (fluent in English & German with a side order of Dutch), I used to _dread_ dealing with French-only speakers, who frequently behaved as if speaking French made them somehow superior to every one else (a.k.a. non-French speakers). Until I visited the French-speaking part of Switzerland. The French/Swiss never had a problem playing 'charades' with me in a restaurant or shop or other business.
