The Times New Travel: Switzerland

As I was watching last night's episode of The Bachelor (don't judge), I was reminded of how much I love the mountains and want to travel. At the top of my litany of places I want to visit has always been Switzerland. It seems like a charming place filled with majestic beauty (and cheese and chocolate). Switzerland has just under 8 million people and ranks high in its quality of life (namely being the most wealthy per capita country in the world). The most common languages spoken are German, French and Italian. Its neutrality policy prevents Switzerland from engaging in armed conflicts in other countries, something I wish the rest of the world would follow. I suppose when you live in such a heavenly place it's easy to remain peaceful.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States
I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
