Snowy Switzerland

Today was the first day of snow in Zurich. I just arrived to town. Not too sure if I will stay here for Halloween or continue on to see the Matterhorn. I am super sleepy from traveling so much. On the other hand, time is running out.


Luxembourg looks like a scene in a fairytale. A striking forest covers Luxembourg city and in the distance a mist wraps around the countryside. It is especially pretty here because all the leaves have changed colors.

This mini-country has a lot of wealth because of it being known for the capital of international banking. The valley is where the town's people live while the hill has all the historical stuff including a castle where the great Grand Duchy (no joke) resided and left over galleries built into the hillside from the 17th century that was used to protect the city's fortress.

I only have a day to explore this city before I go on.
