Switzerland / by A F

Baur au lac

Switzerland is one of my favorite places in the world, so of course, I was so excited to visit this December. We stayed in Zurich for a few days and had a fantastic welcome from the Baur au Lac. A few years ago, I interviewed the Baur au Lac's Gigi Kracht for Fairweather's inaugural edition and it was lovely to return to this incredible hotel.

Zurich is magical, especially in the winter with the Swarovski crystals hanging above the streets and the fantastic markets, including delicious chocolates and handcrafted items.

Next, we were off to St. Moritz. It is so beautiful there. It is hard to believe how serene and breathtaking it is. It is fun to walk around the town, which is filled with great shops and art galleries. I didn't get a chance to go skiing or hiking this time, but there are also great outdoor activities that I love to do when I'm there. It was an amazing trip and I can't wait to return.
