ZURICH – DAY 2

This post is about my travels to Switzerland, Austria, and Germany in 2013.  I know it’s from a while ago, but I want to get it in writing, for you, and for myself.  Enjoy! Our first day in Zurich, Switzerland was a blast.  Here’s the story on that one: OUR FIRST PUB IN ZURICH. Our second…
