Swiss Alps

Check your local public television station for this Rick Steves’ Europe episode or watch it on Switzerland draws travelers from around the world for its legendary mountains. From the Matterhorn to the Jungfrau to Appenzell, we savor both the country’s jaw-dropping alpine beauty and the rich and resilient culture of its people. As we lace together that dramatic mountain wonder with scenic train rides, breathtaking lifts, and unforgettable hikes, we also enjoy alpine life - from exploring glaciers to making cheese the old-fashioned way.

    We have far too many tourists in Switzerland. We locals feel foreign in our own country. Therefore, please, please, do not visit Switzerland. Tourism destroys also the environment and is bad for the climate. Also, Switzerland is not so beautiful and also very expensive. This video does not show reality.

    Certainly won't be a millionaire at the end of this recent fluctuation, but however I had 55k invested 6 months ago in Bitcoin I am sitting at 482k now with 50% in eth and 20% in other alts, I am very thankful to expert Mr billy Fabio who made this possible by helping me trade, maybe the next time I'II have enough to become a millionaire. LESSON spend your money on things that brings back money not on things that are difficult to maintain.
