Swiss Gems

The thing that I love most about traveling is immersing myself into the culture and experiencing things that are unique to the place. Of course, I love going to the famous landmarks and places that tourists tend to go, but I love learning more about the people, their culture and having unique experiences.

Just like for example in enchanting Switzerland, I would very much like to experience of making my own cheese in Ticino. I’ve also found out that not only guests will have a memorable time making their own cheese but after the cheese has mature, this will be sent to their home country.

And here are some other examples of unforgettable experiences which we may call ‘the Swiss gems’ that is unique to Switzerland.
