It is now official – we will be leaving Switzerland in three weeks. The tickets are booked and some sort of travel plan has been made.
On the 6th of March, after I’ve finished cleaning a holiday apartment (a 3-hour-job that pays for both mine and Nathan’s flight tickets. Gotta love the Swiss money!) we’re off to Basel.
After that the plan is pretty loose, but that’s the way we like it. While making our way down to Milan we will go through some random towns and villages in Switzerland. I think we’ll just jump off wherever we feel like it, just follow our gut feelings and stop wherever looks nice – with the GOAL to see as much of Switzerland as we can in 5 days
Does anyone have any ideas for quick train stop overs between Basel, Bern and Milan?
Our flight leaves in the morning from Milan. Well, it’s not actually Milan but a city about an hour away – AND that’s the way Ryan Air does it – every… single… fu*kin… time!
When flying with Ryan Air, don’t ever go by the name of the city they claim the airport is located, it’s never right.
For example the airport in Stockholm is in a town over two hours away, and their Vienna Airport isn’t in Vienna at all, it’s not even in the right country…
If you’ve ever flown with Ryan Air you know it’s barely worth it.
Paying almost nothing is tempting, but once you’ve done it, once you’ve been there and experienced a Ryan Air flight, you’re hesitant if you’d ever want to do it again.
We have decided to take that risk. We’re aware that 80% of the people flying with Ryan Air can’t handle the stress and the lack of oxygen among sweaty armpits all around you, and that they usually take their anger out on others.
But this time we payed extra for priority seating (only 4euro extra). Oh yeah, we’re doing it the luxurious way, so long 200-meter queue!
But to be sure that we get to this airport in time, we will have to stay the night in Milan.
I’ve heard nothing good about this place. Apparently it was included on a list of the worst cities in Europe… but what the heck, a place is what you make it, right?
