7th day of #KimGarethEurotrip

This was taken at the Swiss Alps while we were on the way to San Bernardino.

# – Quite chilly ah… maintain….


Top and trousers and shoes from Bangkok. Scarf from don’t know where. Sunglasses from Bazzarro.


We haven’t finished our trip but already I know that today would be the best day of the entire trip.

We woke up, finding ourselves in Switzerland. Had a pleasant breakfast of healthy muesli followed by unhealthy swiss cheese.

# – Healthy.


# – Unhealthy.


Made an instavideo….

# – Gareth on Switzerland.

Then, we made our way to San Bernardino Pass.

I thought the view from our hotel window was amazing. I was wrong.

# – View from our room for reference.


15 minutes into our journey to the Pass, I started tearing up. Yeap, real tears.  Okay, I actually sobbed like a baby.

I felt so lucky, so grateful, so happy, so amazed, so stupefied….all at the same time.

# – Just a railway track by the lake.


I have never in my life seen anything so beautiful. It all felt surreal, actually being there.

# -Just a part of the road we’re on.


Everytime I thought we have seen the best, we would be assaulted again, in a nice way of course, by the sight of something even more epic.

# – Just a bridge to connect people from one mountain to another.


Unbelievable! It was our slowest drive ever, not because of traffic jams but because we kept stopping. You know, to take it all in.

# – Just a lake at over 2000 metres above sea level at San Bernardino Pass.


There were barely anyone, just a couple of handfuls of locals who were either hiking, cycling, biking or just lying in the grass while their dogs running round with frisbees in mouth. Made me miss my Charlie.

# – Obligatory I was there!!

Then we had lunch of cured meat platter and carpaccio, washed down with coffee and hot cocoa. At the summit of San Bernardino Pass, at 2066 metres above sea level, overlooking a lake surrounded by the Swiss Alps.

# – Sorry, but our lunch pwns your lunch.

And we the drove down San Bernardino Pass. Epic. I have no words.

# – Part of San Bernardino Pass.

# – View from inside of our car.

Really, pictures just can’t do justice to this place. I feel so fortunate to be able to experience this together with the love of my life, my husband.

# – Love you boobydoo ♡

After the epic Swiss Alps, we drove to Lake Como, Italy. It is one of the most beautiful lakes in Europe.

# – Bellagio in the distance.

We had a really nice dinner and then chilled out for a bit, watching people, taking in the lake and enjoyed some gelatos.

# – Parma ham with melons, lamb ravioli and seafood tube pasta.

# – Nyamnyamnyamnyam.

# – Happiness.

Then we crossed Lake Como in a ferry to Milan!

# – The ferry.

# –  On ferry in the dead of night. It was only 9pm.

# – Night view of Bellagio, not the Vegas casino.

We are in Milan now. Will stay here for a couple of days before our next destination.

Wow. What an epic day for us!

6th day of #KimGarethEurotrip

This was taken at Vaduz Castle in the tiny country called Liechtenstein.

# – Leg crossed.


T-shirt from Treadless. Trousers and shoes from Bangkok. Scarf from don’t know where. Sunglasses from Bazzarro.


The day started out really pleasant. We checked out from our hotel in Karlsruhe and found a gastropub called Vogelbrau.

Had some traditional German brunch of white veal sausages with pretzel and goulash. So, so good.  

# – Brunch!

Then we made our way to Neuschwanstein Castle and got stuck in traffic for 4 freaking hours. Honestly,  was shocked by German drivers.

I’d say the driving ethics & standards are pretty similar to Malaysians. They overtake slowly, brake unnecessarily and switch lanes at the last minute. Shocking.

I mean not all were like that but these were the ones that caused the terrible traffic jams.

Anyway, by the time we reached the Castle we realised it was a major tourist trap. It was filled with people! So chaotic and messy, especially when we have experienced nothing but pleasant and calm sightseeing in the past few days.

I didn’t even bother taking pictures.

We continued our jouney into the Swiss Alps, passing Austria and making a pit stop at the tiny, weeny country that is Liechtenstein. The drive was amazing – magnificent mountains and rivers, couldn’t get bored.

Liechtenstein is stunning! So, so, so beautiful.

# – Vaduz Castle from afar.

# – Hubs taking a picture. In the background is Vaduz Castle.


# – The landscape of Liechtenstein.


We then left Liechtenstein and made our way to Switzerland. Stunning landscapes…..pictures could never do justice. You got to be here to understand it.

# – A peek of the Alps. I took this picture when we stopped by the road for a bit.


We reached our hotel overlooking the Swiss Alps. Just had dinner in a restaurant down the road – beautiful dinner.

# – Beef tartare, schnitzel & pasta, veal cordon bleu, tomato & orange ravioli soup and Swiss cheese platter. Burp!


Great start, tough middle, great finish. That basically sums up our day.
