The Lee Family in Europe: Part 1

Friday, June 13, 2014

Almost exactly a week ago, I flew from Paris to Zurich, Switzerland where I waited patiently for my family to arrive. I could barely contain my excitement and tears of joy when I finally saw their smiling faces rushing towards me after four months of being apart!

With 10 days of travel to fill, we decided to split it into three parts: Zurich, Lake Como and Florence.

After checking into our hotel, taking in our balcony views, and freshening up, we set off towards the Lake Zurich, a remarkable sight with snow-capped mountains in the background. Filled with people walking, biking, swimming and basking in the sun, this area reminded me quite a bit of the Lake Calhoun area in Minneapolis…minus the mountainous background of course! We sat and enjoyed cool drinks by the water while catching up on life.

That afternoon, as well as the majority of our remaining days in Zurich, we continued exploring all that this Swiss city had to offer. If there was one or two words to describe Zurich, it would be clean…and expensive. 

We discovered several 13th century church steeples with golden clock faces towering over the city, and narrow winding, cobblestoned streets.

We stumbled upon wonderful street music, watches and designer clothing stores galore, quaint lakeside restaurants and cafes, and of course an abundance of delicious Swiss chocolate!

Our time in Zurich went quickly, but was filled some much-needed, quality family time!
