The spring of 2015 marked my fourth time back on the continent of Europe.
My first trip three trips to Europe occurred between the spring of 2013 and the summer of 2014. During those times, I visited Finland, Iceland, Spain, England, France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Greece and Italy.
My most recent trip to Europe was largely unplanned as it was a stopover en route to Japan. The first of my three flights from New York to Tokyo was scheduled to land in the city of Milan, Italy on a Friday morning and my second leg, from Prague to Amsterdam, was scheduled to depart two days later. I knew that I did not have much time to travel in Europe within that time frame and I had no desire to stay in either city of Milan or Prague, which I had visited the previous year. Ultimately, I had to decide what I was going to do between Milan and Prague and how I was going to get between the two cities.
Looking at a map, I wanted to see what place I could visit that was in between the cities of Milan and Prague. I toyed with a few ideas ranging from visiting Lake Cuomo in Italy, to visiting the tiny country-state of Liechtenstein, to visiting Switzerland. As a destination that had been on my list to visit for a while, I chose to visit Switzerland.
Armed with my camera, my GoPro, my phone, and my two small bags, I hit the ground running once I stepped off of the plane in Milan and made my way towards the Milano Centrale train station.
