A World Away from Home: Zurich

Lakeside Zurich

On our second day in Zurich we had big plans to go hiking, but instead we ended up lazing around the apartment all day and relaxing. It was nice to have a day where we did not need to do much at all.

In the evening we decided to go out for a delicious pizza dinner. According to my sister, you have to reserve ahead of time, otherwise it’s nearly impossible to get a table.

Pizza!

It’s also a lot more expensive to eat out in Zurich than it is in Vancouver. If you’re planning on visiting Switzerland, make sure you have a decent amount to spend on lodging, transportation, and food!

It was delicious pizza – some of the best I’ve had. Well worth the money.

It was also warm and sunny, so we were able to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Afterwards we decided to walk to the lake with some ice cream. Zurich, apparently, has the worst ice cream in Switzerland. Still tasted pretty good to me, though.

The Opera House

It was really nice to see public chairs available for people to relax with friends or on their own in the big plaza. There was a beautiful view of the sunset and lots of space for everyone.

The sky in Zurich was filled with jet streams from planes. It created some beautiful artwork in the sky.

We listened to a very talented violinist who was busking nearby, and then slowly meandered home. A wonderful and relaxing day to recuperate from the busy days we’d been having.

Definitely Missed This

Not only did I miss having a full-sized oven when I was in Korea… I also missed having a place large enough to cook this much food, with this many friends.

Four full-sized pizzas, eight people.

No leftovers.

Pretty epic food night.

There’s something special about making food from scratch, especially with awesome friends. And then mowing down on pure deliciousness. An awesome way to bring everyone together and spend quality time. Also cheaper than going out and buying pizza at a restaurant.
